More on Immigration
Moving to assuage North Coast deportation fears, U.S. Representative Jared Huffman (D-2nd District) is pressing for rumor control, collaboration with local law enforcement and bipartisan moves in Congress to protect Dreamers (immigrant minors) from the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown.
An estimated 1,200 people attended a town hall meeting put on by Rep. Jared Huffman to discuss local, state and national policies that affect the North Coast.
While the meeting was originally set to take place in the Arcata High School Fine Arts Center, Huffman said the location had to be moved to the school’s gym to accommodate for the number of people who RSVP’d. People filled the bleachers and some were left standing at the entrance of the building while others were seated on the floor.
