DEARBORN — A town hall meeting next week at City Hall plans to cover topics regarding immigration.
Building Respect in Diverse Groups to Enhance Sensitivity will host an immigration discussion 6 p.m. May 17 at City Council Chambers, according to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee’s website.
The town hall meeting is open for public participation and will include presentations and a question-and-answer session, according to the website. The event will include welcome remarks by Mayor John O’Reilly and U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of Michigan Barbara McQuade.
BRIDGES Co-Chairman Imad Hamad said people recognize that immigration issues are a major interest especially for immigrants.
“During this period people can learn about updates and recent changes and be informed about immigration rules and regulations,” Hamad said. “So many people get caught in the middle where they don’t fully and accurately understand immigration issues.”
The town hall discussion is meant to act as a forum to break down any confusion and bring clarity from some of the agencies in charge of immigration, Hamad said. He added that it is important for people to stay current with immigration changes that take place.
“This will be a great service for everybody to ask any questions they may have,” Hamad said.
For more information call Hamad at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee office at 313-581-1201.
