Grijalva to hold series of meetings on immigration

U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (D)

U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva will hold forums to discuss immigration policy changes made by President Barack Obama that would offer a chance for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to stay in the country and work.

The forums will be held Saturday afternoon at Arizona State University’s downtown Phoenix campus, Monday afternoon at the Pueblo Magnet High School in Tucson and around midday Tuesday at the Fernando Padilla Community Center in San Luis.

Under the administration’s plan, illegal immigrants will be immune from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED or served in the military.
