A group of Mexican senators want to meet with state legislators in states, including Arizona, that have enacted strict laws targeting illegal immigration.
Sen. Carlos Jimenez Macias, a member of the Mexican Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, confirmed those plans to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution during a workshop on immigration reform Tuesday in Washington. The Mexican senators say they plan to meet with state lawmakers in Georgia, Alabama, Arizona, South Carolina and Utah.
The newspaper reports that the senators plan to show state lawmakers information they say shows illegal immigrants tend to stay out of trouble and contribute to the economy.
Macias says the senators want to meet with Georgia state Rep. Matt Ramsey, who authored Georgia's law. Ramsey told the Journal-Constitution he hadn't received a request for a meeting.
