U.S. to Hold Southeast Summit on Immigration
Monday, 11 June 2012
The first-ever Southeast summit on U.S. immigration will be held in Atlanta with an aim to solve conflicts in the current immigration laws applied to the South states.
The summit is taking place on June 11, 2012 in Atlanta. Participants of the meeting include conservatives and liberals, Democrats and Republicans, political leaders, police and business owners. Before the summit, most of the participants and speakers are likely to support a reform of U.S. immigration policy that can help undocumented immigrants to legalize their status.
The National Immigration Forum, organizer of the summit, indicated that a goal of the summit was to develop a common understanding of the value of U.S. immigrants and immigration to the Southeast and to the country as a whole, and to renew calls for federal action. Key topics which will be referred in the meeting are:
Some speakers at the summit include former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who served under President George W. Bush, Jeb Bush Jr., the son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, who hosted a similar summit in Utah last year, and Paul Bridges, mayor of the Georgia town of Uvalda, who joined a lawsuit against Georgia's law aimed at cracking down on undocumented immigrants.
