Salem, OR (Oct. 17, 2018) – Salem City Club, a biweekly gathering of more than 100 members, will meet Oct. 26 at the Willamette Heritage Center to discuss Ballot Measure 105. The measure proposes to remove Oregon’s listing as a “sanctuary state” by allowing local law enforcement resources and personnel to be used in the prevention of illegal immigration.
Cynthia Kendoll, President of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, will speak in support of Ballot Measure 105. She also serves on the advisory board of the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform.
Andrea Williams, Executive Director of CAUSA (Oregon‘s statewide immigrant rights organization), will speak in opposition to Measure 105. Williams also serves as a board member of the Northwest Health Foundation and the National Partnership for New Americans.
The controversial ballot measure essentially dictates whether local resources will be used to battle immigration or not. The ramifications of this issue will be discussed.
The meeting will take place Friday, Oct. 26, at 11:30 a.m. at the Willamette Heritage Center at 1313 Mill Street St. SE. Members pay $20 and non-members pay $10 without lunch or $30 with lunch. Register online at SalemCityClub.com.
