Flagstaff City Council backs immigration reform

FlagBy Kathleen Stinson | Arizona Daily Sun

The Flagstaff City Council adopted a resolution Tuesday by a vote of 6-1 that calls on Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform.

Before the vote, several residents spoke passionately to the council about their struggles as undocumented immigrants and what type of reforms they need to live the lives they envision for themselves.

The resolution outlines three basic principles the city would like to see reflected in immigration reform legislation.

Resolution No. 2013-25 calls for a recognition of the “economic role immigrants play as workers and taxpayers in our community.”
