Immigration forum sponsored by local churches, non-profit organizations

Some of the complex issues regarding immigration will be the focus of a public forum sponsored by local churches and non-profit organizations on Friday, November 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church, 200 West Center in Logan. Presbyterian Church Pastor Paul Heinz, who will sere as moderator, says it will be an opportunity for people to ask questions and share their own perspectives. “One of our goals for this night,” Pastor Heinz says, “is really to just have it be an inviting and open discussion that can tackle a very controversial and sensitive issue in a way that’s healthy, and that’s meaningful and educational for all who participate.” Pastor Heinz says the evening will start with two Logan High School students debating the immigration issue. Other participants will be Kim Hernandez, history professor at Utah State University, and Marty Moore, Logan Immigration attorney. Later, there will be a panel discussion that includes State Senator Lyle Hillyard, Logan Police Lt. Brett Randall, Catholic Father Clarence Sandoval, and James Morales, Vice President for Student Services at USU. Everyone is invited to attend.
