 Main Principles of Bibles Badges and Business for Immigration Reform:

  • We must deal with aspiring citizens by creating a road to lawful status and citizenship while respecting those who have been in line and awaiting naturalization.
  • We must modernize our nations immigration laws so that future immigration of workers is legal, fair, and orderly.
  • We need to recognize the need for safety and security on the border and in our communities.
  • Worker programs, which allow employers to fill jobs when U.S. workers are not available, should also be a part of the solution.

This Summit will feature:

  • Alex Nowrasteh, Economic Policy Analyst for the Cato Institute, Washington, D.C.
  • Un update on Senate Bill 744 including amendments and the legislative process that will take place over the summer.
  • A panel discussion led by area leaders in ministry, law enforcement, and business.
  • Suggestions for how we can collectively use our influence address the needs of fellow Ohioans on this issue.

Benefits of Attendance:

  • You will hear an excellent presentation by a nationally recognized economic analyst on the economic benefits of immigration reform.  Mr. Nowrasteh will also address some of the myths that cloud the debate over immigration.
  • You can become networked with other people from across the state who are thinking about this issue and advocating for common sense reform.
  • You can sign up (if you wish) for face-to-face meetings with Ohio Senators and Congressional Representatives that we will seek to schedule to collectively help them understand the concerns
