The Tempe Chamber of Commerce has joined with 19 other chambers across Arizona to urge Congress to tackle immigration and seal the borders, respond to labor needs and address the issues of illegal immigrants already in the United States, according to a news release

President/CEO Mary Ann Miller traveled to Washington, D.C., in January to deliver the message, which was endorsed by 20 chambers in Arizona representing more than 70,000 businesses.

“With Arizona on the forefront on the issue, we were fortunate to be able to meet with key legislators from several states, including Arizona,” she said in the release.

Miller led the effort in her role as chairman of the Arizona Chamber Executives Local Chambers Committee.
