Immigration Forum Thursday
ACCESS Press Release
ACCESS Executive Director Hassan Jaber will be one of the featured speakers at an immigration forum beginning at 5:30 p.m. Thursday July 1 at Hope of Detroit Academy. The school, at 4443 North Campbell St., was allegedly staked out earlier this year by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials.
Jaber joins host Congressmen John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.) and Hansen Clarke (D-Mich.), who will speak about ICEâ€™s recent enforcement actions at local elementary schools and against residents and U.S. citizens.
Representatives from the ACLU, Reform Immigration for America (RIFA), and individuals impacted by ICEâ€™s actions also will speak about the adverse effects such actions have had on the immigrant community in Detroit.
