Legislators in 16 States Introducing Resolutions Endorsing Immigration Reform

Rate this Entry

The National Immigration Working Group, a group of 124 legislators from 41 states, has announced that resolutions in 16 states have or will be introduced endorsing comprehensive immigration reform. And they're not just the blue states. Resolutions are being introduced in places like North Dakota, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Missouri.


"The fact that so many state lawmakers
are now standing up in support of comprehensive immigration reform should send
a message to Congress: Americans support comprehensive reform that has a path
to citizenship for all 11 million aspiring citizens currently living in the
shadows that is as inclusive and accessible as possible," said State
Senator Angela Giron (Colorado), Chair of the National Immigration Working
Group. "Just three years after SB1070, we are now seeing a groundswell of
support from the states for immigration reform with a path to citizenship that
is bipartisan in nature."

Of course, this doesn't mean these states are suddenly going to wipe from the books some of the anti-immigrant measures passed in recent years. But it is a welcome development that pro-immigration legislators are getting organized and pushing back.

The following is a list of states that have seen
resolutions introduced or announced:

Arizona: SR 10001 

Florida: S 816 

Georgia: HR 912 

Hawaii: HCR 67 

Oklahoma: HR 1014 

Oregon: HJM 11 

Texas: HCR 44 and SCR 15 



Passed at least one chamber: 

New Jersey: AR 142 and SR
95
 

New Mexico: HM 30 and SJM 52

Nevada: SJR 15 



Announced: 

Colorado (Sen. Giron) 

Illinois (Rep. Berrios) 

Missouri (Rep. Gina Mitten)
