Congressman Cleaver to Hold Town Hall On Immigration
(Kansas City, MO) – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II, will hold a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 2 p.m. at the Manual Career Technical Center, located at 1215 E. Truman Road, in Kansas City, Missouri. President Donald Trump recently signed executive orders on immigration during his first week in office. This town hall meeting will address how these changes to immigration will affect thousands of families here in the Kansas City area and throughout the 5th District of Missouri. Congressman Cleaver will listen to concerns and be joined by a panel of experts in the field to answer questions that individuals and families may have regarding the potential elimination of the DACA program and any changes to the refugee and visa program.
“Families should not be out there lost to the wind. They want to know what to do, where to turn. They want to know answers. I’m going to try and provide that for them. Please come out to Manual Tech with your concerns on Saturday. We may not be able to undo what President Trump has done, but we can help you find answers about what to do next,” said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver.
The panel will feature immigration lawyers, and experts from local and national organizations. We invite immigrants, refugees, advocates and the public-at-large to join in the discussion on the proposed changes to the U.S. immigration policy.
