Latino business leaders come out against immigration bill

As long as House Bill 488 has life, many folks will do all they can to fight against it.

“Unfortunately these kind of bills have unintended consequences,” said Pedro Galdamez.

That bill in question was written by representative Becky Currie and supported by Governor Phil Bryant. It seeks to reform illegal immigration laws in Mississippi. The bill is modeled after the controversial Alabama law which went into affect last year and continues to be fought against.

Since the bill was first filed at the state capitol, numerous groups have come out against it and Tuesday was no different as business leaders from the Hispanic and Latino communities rallied in opposition.
