Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform Hosts the Arizona Immigration Solutions Conference
Reverend James Dorhauer and Arizona State Representative Russ Jones trade laughs.
On Saturday, May 7th, the Arizona Employers for Immigration Reform hosted the Arizona Immigration Solutions Conference at Rio Salado College in Tempe, Arizona.
The purpose of the conference was bring together a variety of community leaders from the Southwest to hold multiple panel discussions on the topic of immigration.
Around two hundred people attended the sold-out proceedings. Both the speakers and attendees represented a wide cross section of political views.
Five separate one-hour sessions were held throughout the day. I attended the conference and filmed the various speakers.
