Congressman returns U.S. Chamber of Commerce award over immigration disagreement


The Detroit News reports that Congressman Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) on Thursday returned an award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that he accepted earlier this year after disagreeing with the organization’s stance on immigration. Bentivolio returned the “Spirit of Enterprise” award because of the Chamber's support for a path to legalization for undocumented immigrants.

The U.S. Chamber has endorsed Birmingham a challenger to Bentivolio in the Republican primary.
