Community Leaders to Hold Frank Discussion on Immigration

WHO: Khalid Mirza, Founding Member, Coalition of South Florida Muslim Organizations (COSMOS);
Jose Antonio Zabalgoitia, Consul General of Mexico in Miami;
Markenzy Lapointe, Partner, Boies, Schiller & Flexner; and
Monica Lazaro, Americans for Immigrant Justice (AI Justice) DREAMer client.
 
WHAT:  The Immigrant Experience: Today's Realities
 
WHERE:  Coral Gables Congregational Church,  3010 De Soto Blvd, Coral Gables
 
WHEN:  Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016, 7-8:30pm
 
WHY: The Immigrant Experience: Today's Realities will bring community leaders together for a frank discussion regarding current challenges immigrants face amid rising anti-immigrant sentiment. AI Justice seeks to dispel pervasive myths regarding immigration and encourage others to help combat growing xenophobia and racism.  "Regardless of who our next President is, one thing is clear: anti-immigrant sentiment is far more prevalent in this country than many of us thought and the need for sensible immigration reform more important than ever," said Little. In many ways, South Florida, with its growing immigrant population, reflects what America will more closely resemble in the years ahead.
