Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor is hosting a forum on the economic implications of extending U.S. citizenship to immigrants living illegally in the country.

The forum Wednesday night at Arizona State University is expected to cover the differences between legal residency and U.S. citizenship.

Business, policy and immigration leaders are also slated to speak during the discussion.

O’Connor is a proponent of The Real Arizona Coalition, which supports a broader approach toward immigration that takes into account the contributions of illegal immigrants and the labor needs of businesses.

She was the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court. She also is a former Arizona state senator.
