Immigration conference to be held in Flagstaff

Business, civic and religious groups will hold a conference Saturday in Flagstaff to examine alternatives for confronting Arizona’s immigration woes.

Organizers say the state’s current immigration approach isn’t working and that alternatives should be considered.

The gathering will be the second in a series of five conferences across the state to examine the impact of Arizona’s immigration laws on communities and businesses.

The three remaining conferences will be held in Mesa on Sept. 17, in Yuma on Sept. 24 and in Tucson on Oct. 1.

In recent years, the Arizona Legislature has enacted several immigration laws in response to voter frustrations over the state’s porous border.

Some business people in Arizona have complained that the state’s immigration laws have hurt the state’s business climate.
