What We Do

ABIC Arizona

The American Business Immigration Coalition Arizona Chapter gives voice to the state’s business, faith, and community leaders who support common sense immigration reform that addresses the needs of our high and low-skilled workforce.

ABIC Arizona connects partners with government agencies to facilitate communication between local, state, and federal government with Grand Canyon residents and businesses to maintain an open channel to resolve issues that stand in the way of economic development.

Among our major campaigns in 2021 was our effort to get a ballot initiative for in-state college tuition for Dreamers placed on the November, 2022 state ballot. Our successful campaign was led by former AZ state Sen. Bob Worsley, who also is an ABIC national co-chair. Mr. Worsley stepped up his outreach efforts when the bill approving the ballot initiative got stuck in the state House. We plan to be victorious in November 2022.
