On March 18, 2017, a community in Wichita, KS took it upon itself to become more informed about immigration. The event was covered by the local paper. Over 100 people from various backgrounds attended the event. In any community, most people know another person that is somehow affected by an immigration issue.
Where an individual is in the U.S. with or without documents, the immigration issues are a daily concern. Many employers using the immigration visas to bring and attract top talent from other countries are also concerned about the immigration issues. In some communities, children worry about their parents and lives because of the immigration uncertainty.
To address the issues, it’s important to be informed about what is going on with immigration in the U.S. As referenced in the article, everyone from residents, law enforcement, and leaders want to address the issues in the best way possible for this community. Perhaps other similar events can help address people’s concerns. It will at least help people in becoming informed.
