Business leaders committed to Utah Compact of Immigration

Local News

Utah business leaders came together on Thursday to re-affirm support for principles of the Utah Compact of Immigration.

Leaders say they recognize and support the positive impact immigrants bring to Utah’s economy.

Signers of the compact say they are committed to reforms that strengthen our state’s economy and attract people to fill critical jobs to accelerate the state’s growth.

President & CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber, Derek Miller, says this is an important step.

“By resigning the Utah compact reaffirmed important principles. Being sensitive to family concerns, being sensitive to economic concerns, being sensitive to law enforcement, concerns all of these principles provide a lens through which this policy debate should occur,” said Miller.

The Utah Compact of Immigration was adopted in 2010.
