The Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials plans to highlight the benefits of immigration to Gainesville and the state during a session this morning.
Set for 9 a.m. at the Georgia Mountains Center, the event will feature comment from, among others, business and industry leaders, economists, community groups, immigration attorneys and health care professionals.
A similar gathering is scheduled for 3 p.m. today at the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center in Dalton. In addition to the benefits of immigration, organizers of the sessions plan to discuss some of the myths associated with it.
The meetings are timed with Congressional hearings in the same two North Georgia towns. The hearings will address differences between the U.S. House and Senate’s stance on immigration.
No one is arguing about the benefits of immigration. They are arguing about *ILLEGAL* immigration. There is a difference. But, hat tip to GALEO for an excellent job politicizing the issue.
