(KCPW News) A letter on immigration reform, co-signed by leaders from six different Mountain West states, got a boost from prominent Utahns at a Tuesday press conference. The letter is addressed to each U.S. Representative from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah, and it urges the region’s Congressional members to work toward passing immigration reform legislation during the current congressional session.

For more on the letter and the diverse group of Utah leaders supporting it, we turn to KCPW’s Ryan Cunningham.
