Immigration Reform Focus of Upcoming Event in Greensboro
Numerous groups across North Carolina continue to push for federal immigration reform. Now they want residents to get involved in the discussion.
North Carolina has almost 400,000 undocumented immigrants. Statewide, several groups say the U.S. Immigration Law must be reformed or communities will have to deal with the fallout.
Thursday evening (March 20) in Greensboro, two groups, Bibles, Badges and Business for Immigration Reform and Centro International de Raleigh, are teaming up. They will host a panel discussion on how U.S. Immigration Law impacts several parts of a community. The event will be on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the Elliot University Center—Cone Ballroom B. There are two public sessions, one at 4:30 p.m. and a second at 6:30 p.m.
WFDD's Kathryn Mobley spoke with John Faison, executive director of Centro International de Raleigh to discuss how the issue of immigration reform is impacting communities in the Piedmont.
