Tonight: Tucson Immigration Reform Symposium

Posted By on Mon, Nov 4, 2013 at 12:30 PM

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and the American Immigration Council have teamed up to offer an immigration reform symposium, tonight, 6:30 p.m. at the Berger Performing Arts Center at the Arizona School for the Deaf and the Blind, 1200 W. Speedway. Admission is free.

From symposium organizers:


This will be an opportunity to compare U.S. Senate Bill S.744 with the legislation presented or being considered by the U.S. House. Also for discussion will be projections for the possible, if not probable, conference bill and the White House response. The Symposium will not have a debate format but an opportunity to be informed as to the content of the expected multiple pieces of legislation and any unresolved negotiations that may exist on November 4. There will be presentations by three very distinguished authorities on immigration from Washington, D.C. followed by discussion with a response panel and written questions from the audience.

PRESENTATION PANEL

Jeanne Butterfield, Special Counsel with the Raben Group

Marshall Fitz, Director, Immigration Policy, Center for American Progress

Benjamin Johnson, Executive Director, American Immigration Council

Congressman Raul Grijalva
