40/29 News To Televise Town Hall Meeting on Immigration
Source: KHBS/KHOG Press Release Immigration draws passionate debate nationally and here at home.
Many argue that the rapid influx of Hispanic immigrants is damaging the traditional way of life in Arkansas. They question if Hispanics pay taxes, drive down wages or cause local schools to struggle. But is there any truth to these arguments? 40/29 News and The Morning News have researched the data, interviewed the experts and talked with locals on all sides of the issue to find out if the perceptions are reality.
40/29 News, in partnership with The Morning News, is hosting a Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, May 15th, 2007 to present many of the results of our findings and to open a discussion about the impact of immigration on our area. We have assembled a panel of experts who will take questions, many of which come from 40/29 News viewers and readers of The Morning News. “This is an excellent opportunity to open a dialogue on this vitally important topic in Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley. Our hope is our viewers will walk away with a better understanding of immigration and how it impacts all of us.” said 40/29 News Director Mike Courington.
The Town Hall Meeting, Immigration: Perception v. Reality, will take place on Tuesday, May 15 6:30pm-7:00pm on the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. The event will be broadcast on 40/29 News and streamed live on www.4029tv.com
