Policy Priorities

Workforce and Immigration:

A Modern Approach to the Colorado Economy

Immigrants make invaluable contributions to the Colorado economy and workforce. Colorado’s business leaders support modernizing the U.S. immigration system to reflect the world we live in today.

Immigration is a top issue in 2022, but the national conversation often misses what is really happening on the ground in Colorado. It has become imperative that policy makers and the general public better understand the economic impacts of immigration in our communities and how modern immigration policies will benefit our state.
