Club 20 Passes Resolution Supporting Immigration Reform
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- Club 20 took a stance on Immigration Reform on Friday.
The business advocacy group for Colorado’s 22 western counties passed a resolution supporting "bipartisan nature" and "broad collation" of the immigration bill.
Officials say they believe our current system is broken and while they do not approve of the new reform 100 percent, they say it's a start.
“It’s a step in the right direction and we would like to encourage congress to either adopt that or go along with that,” said Steve Reynolds, chairman of Club 20. “Or they can come up with something equal or as just as good, which will also help us move that ball forward and not just kick the can down the road.”
Club 20 officials say their resolution passed unanimously.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform promises to give 11 million people who are living here undocumented a path to citizenship.
