Esty Hosting Immigration Roundtable

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty has scheduled a roundtable discussion on immigration reform.

The 5th Congressional District Democrat has scheduled the event on from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday at Waterbury City Hall.

Esty is expected to be joined by students, workers, local elected officials and community leaders to learn first-hand what immigration reform would mean for people living in central and northwestern Connecticut.

Immigration legislation being considered in Congress would strengthen the border with Mexico, allow tens of thousands of new high- and low-skilled workers into the country, mandate that all employers verify workers’ legal status and provide an eventual path to citizenship for those living here illegally.
