Immigration talk slated by Vail Valley’s Congressman

WESTMINSTER, Colo. – Immigration reform is on the table Saturday for Democratic Rep. Jared Polis, who represents the Vail Valley.

Polis is playing host for an immigration round-table in Westminster. Polis has invited Democratic congressman Xavier Becerra of California to join in the debate.

Polis has repeatedly called for immigration reform. He has sponsored a bill to make it easier for foreign entrepreneurs to receive American visas. That proposal is still pending in the House.

The first-term congressman has also spoken on the floor of the House to criticize a law allowing local law enforcement agencies to enforce immigration law. Polis said last fall that the local immigration enforcement has caused “a sweep of terror” in immigrant communities.
