About the Event

What is this about?

With the 2024 elections coming up, Immigration is proving to be one of the biggest issues concerning voters. An AP-NORC poll taken in December of 2023 showed that 35% of respondents replied that immigration is a top issue for them breaking down to 55% for Republicans and 22% for Democrats.

The recent border surge resulted in a temporary shutdown of the Lukeville border checkpoint, a popular checkpoint for tourism and commerce.

Given that the last comprehensive immigration bill happened under the Reagan administration, many feel it is time for another look at our immigration system.

Why come to this event?

Come hear from some of Arizona’s top policy minds, learn about the issue of immigration in Arizona from a variety of different perspectives, and meet other people who care about this issue.
