WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Thirty-two Kansas mayors have signed a letter urging the state's congressional delegation to support immigration reform efforts.

Wichita government relations manager Dale Goter said in a news release Wednesday that Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer and Lenexa Mayor Mike Boehm circulated the letter as part of a joint effort. The effort involved a series of teleconferences with elected officials and immigration reform supporters.

The letter says immigrants are "valued" community members and that the mayors are "supportive of a solution that allows reasonable access to citizenship while assuring adequate border security."

The letter is similar to one sent to the congressional delegation earlier this summer by the Kansas Business Coalition for Immigration Reform. The group's members include the Kansas Chamber of Commerce and Kansas Farm Bureau.
