Immigration Reform Event Set for Nov. 16 at UNO
Omaha - The myths and facts of immigration reform will be the focus of a presentation at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) on Thursday, Nov. 16. Milo Mumgaard, executive director of Nebraska Appleseed and director of the Appleseed Immigrant Policy Program, will discuss comprehensive and "common sense" reform options that can occur when mainstream voters insist.
"Common Sense and Immigration Reform: What People Really Want" will begin at 7 p.m. at the William H. and Dorothy Thompson Alumni Center. It is free and open to the public.
"The talk will focus on the 109th Congress' election-year passage of legislation to build a 700-mile fence along the U.S.-Mexico border and increase workplace enforcement, and how this presently passes for immigration ‘reform, '" Mumgaard said..
The League of Women Voters of Greater Omaha, the UNO Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) Charla Series, and the Nebraska Appleseed Center for Law and the Public Interest are cosponsoring the event.
For groups of five or more, contact Lucy Garza at email@example.com with party numbers. For more information, contact OLLAS at (402) 554-3825.
The Nebraska Appleseed Center for Law in the Public Interest, Inc. is a non-profit, non-partisan law project. Nebraska Appleseed addresses problems such as limited access to legal representation, unfair legislation and public policy.
