An OFIR member in Eugene alerts us about a forum on immigration, to be held at Lane Community College in Eugene on November 28 from 7:30 PM to 9 PM in Building 19, Room 257.
The title of the forum is "The Politics of Immigration: Confronting our past, constructing a future." Jim Garcia, Chicano/Latino Student Program Coordinator at Lane Community College is the sponsor. Thus far, he has invited as speakers an immigration lawyer and Mike Samonoa, ethnic studies professor at Lane to represent the open-border point of view and Springfield city councilor Dave Ralston, who opposes illegal immigration and who will speak for immigration controls and restrictions.
Lane Community College is located at 4000 E. 30th Ave., Eugene OR 97405. The telephone number is 541-463-3000. Website: http://www.lanecc.edu/
I know that Rick Hickey will be attending. It would be great for more people to show up and support the position that "illegal is illegal." (something so simple that politicians can't quite get it)
