Immigration & the NW Detenion Center

Lecture

Derrick Rhain from Tacoma Community House will discuss issues in our immigrant and refugee communities. He will tell us about the history of migration and immigration throughout the world and in our own area. His special focus will be on the Northwest Detention Center (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) in Tacoma, which detains over 1000 people -- its purpose, conditions, and related issues. Brown bag lunch and time for questions follows the presentation. Child care available if you call the church at (360) 352-7838 by Monday, November 9
