Miranda named Chair of the National Immigration Task Force

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – The National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators on Wednesday named Rep. Catherine Miranda, D-Phoenix (District 16), chairwoman of a task force that will make policy recommendations designed to have a positive impact on Hispanics.

Miranda, with other members of the International Relations, Trade, and Immigration Task Force, will develop priority policy recommendations in these areas for the NHCSL. The NHCSL is an association of Hispanic legislators founded in 1989 and focused on developing and implementing policies and procedures to improve the quality of life of Hispanics across the country.

“It’s a good opportunity to recommend policies that will have positive effects on the growing Hispanic community in this country,” Miranda said.

Representing the task force, Miranda’s aim is to work with advocates of immigration reform in critical communities throughout the United States.

“Our goal is advancing immigration reform at the federal level,” Miranda said.
