SC groups combine to press for immigration reform
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A coalition of religious, agriculture and chamber of commerce groups is coming together to press for immigration reform.
A session by the Palmetto State Coalition Reform is being held Wednesday to ask national leaders to support a comprehensive reform of the nation's immigration policy.
Coalition spokesman Shell Suber says the coalition is getting support from farm groups such as the South Carolina Farm Bureau, the Palmetto Agribusiness Council and the Spartanburg County Baptist Network.
Suber says representatives of the Charleston Metro Chamber and the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce also are supporting the group.
