The City Club of Central Oregon tackled immigration reform Thursday. Jim Ludwick with "Oregonians for Immigration Reform" says Oregon is greatly affected by this issue. Oregon is between a rock and a hard place. The rock is 25% of all illegal aliens are in California and Washington openly gives drivers licenses to illegal aliens. Washington is the only state on the west coast that does that. Dan Larsson, a Bend based U.S. Immigration attorney says America has failed to deal with this issue for years. “There needs to be some reform to fix this issue. The world is changing the and the U.S. is changing and the U.S. needs skilled and unskilled workers and immigration is really what the U.S. is all about.” Both speakers feel its time for the federal government to act on immigration reform.
