IMMIGRATION REFORM: HOW WILL IT IMPACT BUSINESS?

PANELISTS LOOK AT EMERGING LEGISLATION

 Three experts discuss immigration reform’s effect on Colorado businesses, community

 

The nation’s leading lawmakers are working on a proposal for comprehensive immigration reform legislation, an effort that is gaining momentum in the wake of recent election results in which the Latino vote emerged as a significant factor. What impact will the emerging immigration reform legislation have on Colorado businesses?

The immigration issue is particularly significant for Colorado, where the demographic transition is extensive, and new alliances help to make new policies possible.  Many in the business community want reform in order to gain access to workers they need due to an aging U.S. labor force and a perceived shortage of high-skilled workers and low-skilled labor for agricultural and construction jobs. The panelists will discuss:

  • The latest on emerging national immigration legislation
  • Which Colorado constituencies are most affected
  • Why immigration reform is important now
  • The impact on Colorado businesses
