NEWS RELEASE

            All are invited to a community education forum regarding immigration reform on Thursday, Sept. 26, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Campus Theater at Wenatchee Valley College. The college is located at 1300 Fifth Street in Wenatchee.

“This issue is of vital importance to all residents of Washington state because it affects us all,” said Jon Wyss, president of the Okanogan County Farm Bureau, who will be the keynote speaker. “Jobs, agriculture, business, individuals and families, border security – there is much to understand.”

Wenatchee attorney Dale Foreman will be a panelist speaking in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. Seattle marketing consultant Steve Beren will be a panelist advocating border security as a national defense issue, and speaking against amnesty for people living in the U.S. without legal permission. Former Wenatchee World editor and Chelan PUD communications director Steve Lachowicz will be the moderator. Answers to audience questions will conclude the program.

The forum is presented by the North Central Washington Immigration Reform Roundtable (NCWIRR), a diverse group of individuals representing bipartisan and nonprofit organizations, faith-based communities, businesses, and families. For more information contact Alma Chacón at (509) 630-3315 or Karen Keleman at (509) 630-3055.
