Grijalva to host forum on immigration enforcement policy
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva today announced he will host a community forum for students, families, education leaders, non-profits and others interested in President Obama's newly announced immigration enforcement policy. Attendance will be free and open to the public. Details for each event are available below.
Rep. Grijalva will deliver opening remarks and introductions at each event, and legal experts will be available to answer questions.
"President Obama's new policy is an important step toward ending our senseless punishment of young people who find themselves without legal status through no fault of their own," Grijalva said. "Millions of students across the United States who have done everything right – studied hard, worked hard, and stayed out of trouble – continue to face the threat of deportation from their homes to countries they may never even have visited. President Obama's policy change puts the American dream within reach of these deserving students. I'm committed to making every resource available to DREAM Act-eligible students during this process, and I hope to see them and their families at these forums."
Somerton Community Forum
When: July 3, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Fernando Padilla Community Center (1090 E. Union St. in San Luis)
Speakers: DREAM Act Students, Religious and Community Leaders, Legal Experts
