OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- The League of Kansas Municipalities is urging Congress to enact immigration reforms that include what the group calls a "reasonable" path to citizenship for immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

In a statement issued Monday at its annual meeting, the league says any immigration changes also should provide adequate border security and should not burden local governments.

The statement endorses a federal solution on immigration. Some states have pursued their own policies for cracking down on illegal immigration, but Kansas lawmakers have been split on the issue.

More than 30 Kansas mayors signed a letter to the state's congressional delegation in August, urging its members to pursue immigration reform. Signers included the mayors who brought the issue to the league, Carl Brewer of Wichita and Mike Boehm of Lenexa.
