Immigration conference set for Nov. 12 in Yuma

Business, civic and religious groups have rescheduled a conference in Yuma to examine alternatives for confronting Arizona’s immigration problems.

The conference will be held on Nov. 12 at Arizona Western College.

Organizers had scheduled the event at an earlier date, but had to cancel because they weren’t able to sell enough tickets.

The gathering is the last in a series of conferences that business, civic and religious groups across Arizona held to examine alternatives for confronting the state’s immigration woes.

Their purpose is to examine the impact of Arizona’s immigration laws on communities and businesses.

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