TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-The group "Sunflower Community Action" visited the Statehouse to let lawmakers know why they feel two bills up for debate are wrong.
One would require proof of citizenship for anyone suspected to be an illegal alien, while the other repeals in-state tuition rates for undocumented college-eligible immigrant students.
"Those are the laws that can hurt our economy. They're not going to help our community. They are going to send us into a downward spiral," said Carlos Contreas, a member of Sunflower Community Action group.
The group says the state could lose $1.8 billion in economic activity if the bills are approved.
