Catholic Hispanic Ministry, a member of AFACT (Anchorage Faith & Action – Congregations Together), is joining a national dialogue to explore the future of the nearly 10,000 undocumented immigrants living in Alaska. The Ministry will hold a one-hour public meeting with Senator Lisa Murkowski to address immigration reform priorities. The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 30, at 7:00 pm at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Center, 3900 Wisconsin Street.
Members of the Catholic Hispanic Ministry understand the overwhelming concern of their families surrounding comprehensive immigration reform. Senator Murkowski will hear the stories of immigrant families and discuss national solutions and priorities. The meeting will include testimony, a research report, and a response from Senator Murkowski.
