Many of us within and outside the GOP have not given up on the idea of immigration reform. Immigration remains a serious problem, yet most of the people who dominate this discussion in national and local political circles actively thwart serious discussion about serious solutions. I discussed some options here recently, and that online entry has led to quite a few interesting discussions off line. As such, we’re going to try something different.
This Wednesday, July 9th, we do something we’ve never done here at Peach Pundit. We’re going to get out from behind the keyboard and hold one of our discussions live, in person, for any interested party to come and watch.
I’ll be hosting this discussion with a cross section of the community to discuss current problems, opportunities for solutions, how current messaging on the issue is hurting the GOP politically, and other related topics. Those participating on this panel include:
Jorge Fernandez, VP Global Commerce, Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce
Maria Cortes, Certified Court Interpreter for the Doraville Municipal Court
Elaine Boyer, DeKalb County Commissioner, and
Will Kremer, Chairman, Georgia Association of College Republicans
The event will be held in the auditorium of the Gwinnett County Justice and Administration Center at 7pm this Wednesday evening. 75 Langley Drive, Lawerenceville GA 30046. We’re working on putting together a Peach Pundit road show at a nearby restaurant afterwards.
We look forward to having this discussion. We’re not going to pretend to have all the solutions, but we want to begin to assert that there are those among us that understand we have to have one, and that process begins next week.
