Immigration Reform

A major move in immigration reform is getting support from the Hispanic community in Goshen.

The proposed legislation would allow illegal immigrants to stay in the United States under certain conditions.

It will also tighten border patrols.

Leaders at Goshen's Chamber of Commerce say any type of action that allows illegal immigrants to continue to work and be a part of the community is welcome.

“The issue here is how to build the community and understand issues we all face and how to all work together to address problems and see that it does become a community,” says David Daugherty from the Goshen Chamber of Commerce.

The legislation is just in the beginning stages.

Some are skeptical it won't reach President Bush's desk while others are hopeful, since it has bipartisan support.
