UT Leaders Urge Guidelines To Immigration Reform

 

 

SALT LAKE CITY- The Salt Lake Chamber has joined variety of community, business, political and religious leaders among the first signatories of the Utah Compact. The Utah Compact is a declaration of five principles to guide Utah’s immigration discussion.
 
“There is no simple solution with an issue like immigration,” said Lane Beattie, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber, which represents one-third of the jobs in the Utah economy. “Any immigration legislation will have a ripple effect that touches the economy, families and the perception of our state across the world. Crafting a solution that adheres to these five principles will ensure those consequences are considered and that changes to immigration law reflect the values of our state.”
 
Groups and individuals concerned about the tone of Utah’s immigration discussion developed the Utah Compact over several months. The Chamber was proud to play a role in the discussions. As the document began to take shape, more individuals and organizations expressed support, provided valuable perspective and a true grassroots movement was underway.

With roots that date back to 1887, the Chamber has been standing as the voice of business, supporting its members’ success and championing community prosperity for over 100 years.
