The Sound of Ideas Community Tour: Immigration in Painesville
The country is divided over immigration policy such as the role of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the path for DREAMers, and border security. Painesville, a community with a large immigrant community, is grappling with these real-world issues on a local level. We kicked off our 2019 Community Tour in Painesville with a civil and wide-ranging dialogue with an immigration lawyer, a local elected official, a business owner and residents directly affected by immigration policy.
