TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening today, resident's voices can be heard by those who are working to pass new immigration reform legislation.

Experiences of some Southern Arizona residents may actually help in the decision making process.

There will be an immigration reform symposium at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind this evening at 6:30 p.m.

Residents will be able to get their questions about immigration reform answered.  The response panel includes U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva, along with leaders from the Tohono O'odham Nation and the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, as well as mayors from Nogales, Bisbee and Douglas.  U.S. Representative Ron Barber is also scheduled to be at the symposium, which will not have a debate format and instead will be an opportunity to educate residents on the different pieces of legislation.

The symposium will be at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind, at the Berger Performing Arts Center 1200 W. Speedway, it is free and begins around 6:30 p.m. tonight.
