Come Early at 10:00am for Special Discussion on Immigration

Posted by Andy McCaskey on Monday, January 29, 2018 @ 5:22 PM

Richard Aguirre will speak on immigration Sunday, February 4th at 10:00 a.m.
Heated rhetoric about immigration has dominated debate in Washington, D.C. and across the country. What are thoughtful Christians to do and think? Richard R. Aguirre, a Goshen College administrator, was a key leader in the 3,600-member coalition opposing construction of an immigration detention center in Elkhart County. His coalition's successful campaign helped to persuade the company, CoreCivic, to abandon its plans. He also works with “Dreamers,” young college students brought to the U.S. as children who face deportation. Immigration is a topic with many complexities and many faces. We are very fortunate to have a knowledgeable and faithful person to help guide us in an examination of the issue.
