Immigration Panel, April 21, 2018
The Palm Beach County Chapter of the National Organization for Women hosted an important program, Immigration: Everybody’s Issue on Saturday, April 21 at the Delray Beach Public Library at 100 West Atlantic Avenue from 11-12:30 PM. We assembled an extraordinary panel who form the Palm Beach County-Coalition for Immigration Rights:
- Julia Montejo, a Dreamer who can speak to her status and the turmoil other DACA families are currently enduring.
- Victoria Mesa-Estrada, Attorney at Law for Florida Legal Services .
- Adriana Gonzalez, Attorney for Personal Injuries.
- Barbara Eriv, Chair of the LWVPBC Immigration Committee.
Due to decades of a broken system of immigration in our country and an ugly history of discrimination, the rights of immigrants have been severely compromised. This dire situation has been shamefully exacerbated by the Trump Administration’s cruel tactics of xenophobia, mass deportations, and unchecked abuse from federal officials, and much more. It is imperative for all of us to become aware of the unique abuses suffered by immigrants, particularly women, in the political, economic, labor and social spheres in FL and across the U.S today. To help us understand how we can support legislation to protect immigration rights.
