Additional Information

Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts is hosting a community forum on the subject of immigration. The topic discussed will be the importance of achieving immigration reform and will include the adverse impact illegal immigration is having on public safety, national security, public health, education, and economic well-being for United States citizens and legal residents.

This event will include a question and answer period and will end with a discussion about strategies we can utilize to end the 20 years of inaction by Congress and move forward with a sensible and fair plan that will lead us to a legitimate comprehensive immigration policy.
