AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Top business associations representing Texas retailers, restaurants and hotels are forming a coalition to press for immigration reform.

The trade groups are scheduled to launch the coordinated effort Monday morning at the state Capitol.

Members include the Texas Restaurant Association, Texas Association of Retailers, Texas Hotel and Lodging Association and the South Texas Property Rights Association.

They will join the Partnership for a New Economy, which is a non-partisan group that lobbies to streamline the U.S. immigration system. The group includes industries that have a hard time finding low-skilled workers.
