Somos Lea County, an affiliate of Somos Un Pueblo Unido, is hosting a nonpartisan Community Town Hall focusing on the impact of the current immigration system on immigrant workers, families, and Lea County's economy. Immigrants make up a significant part of the agricultural, oil and gas industries, so the group states the outcome of the immigration reform debate will affect the economic and demographic future of the region.
Participants at the town hall will include state and municipal policymakers, representatives from congressional offices, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Labor leaders, faith leaders, law enforcement, and concerned residents in an open dialogue on immigration reform.
Other organizers of the town hall include Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Hobbs and St. Thomas Church of Lovington.
