Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot is working with Republicans and Democrats to try to get immigration-reform legislation passed.
VanderSloot said the United States should allow immigrants to work, cross the border freely and pay taxes. One way to do that is with good legislation.
"We all came from some place else, even the Native Americans came from somewhere else. We should allow people to come here and continue to build on this great heritage on immigration," he said.
VanderSloot is a board member on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
