MYTHS AND REALITIES OF IMMIGRATION TOPIC OF FORUM AT MCC
WOODSTOCK—“Immigration: Myths vs. Realities in the Current Debate” will be the topic of a public forum in the Current American Issues in the McHenry County College Conference Center on Thursday, September 13 at 7 p.m.
The featured speaker will be Salvador A. Cicero, an award winning Chicago attorney whose law practice focuses on civil rights, immigration, business law and international human rights. Cicero, a former Consul of Mexico, is a volunteer with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC.) He has directed projects for the American Bar Association and serves as a consulting expert for the Organization of American States. His scholarly articles have been published in peer reviewed law journals and he is qualified by U.S. Courts as an expert in international law. He has made a specialty of preventing trafficking in human beings.
Cicero will offer his perspectives on U.S. immigration policy as it exists today and how international trade agreements have affected the influx of job seekers.
The program follows a month of controversy about immigration touched off by an program, later cancelled, sponsored by Illinois Minuteman Project and public demonstrations by both sides in Crystal Lake.
The Current American Issues Series is sponsored monthly at MCC by the McHenry County Peace Group. There will be a period of open discussion following the program. Admission is free and open to the public.
