A TOWN HALL AT THE COMMONWEALTH CLUB OF CALIFORNIA
As lawmakers continue to hammer out revisions to immigration policy, the issue has proved divisive both inside the Beltway and across the nation. The House and Senate propose sharply differing ideas, and immigrants are taking to the streets in rallies and boycotts. Meanwhile, President Bush is moving to dispatch National Guard troops to patrol the Mexican-U.S. border. What can be done to fix the broken system? Panelists will discuss what role immigration plays in health care, education, public policy and the U.S. economy.
5:30 p.m., Wine and cheese reception | 6:00 p.m., Program | Club office, 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco | No Charge | Directions to The Club.
