Titled “USA Immigration: Truths and Myths,” the forum will seek to inform and shed light on the complicated issue of Hispanic immigration. “It is imperative that the community at large be better informed on immigration issues and have an opportunity, in a nonpartisan setting, to participate in the formulation of future U.S. immigration policy,” said Dr. Dorothy Caram, co-chair of the event. The panel will consist of four speakers: State Representative Rick Noriega, Attorney Monty Jacob, University of Houston sociologist Nestor Rodriguez and Texas A&M University sociologist Rogelio Saenz. Rice University Professor Richard Tapia will be the moderator, and attorney Adan Vega will coordinate the roundtable discussion. The event is free and open to the public. The immigration forum is being sponsored by the Houston Hispanic Forum, Society of Latino Alumni of Rice, the Hispanic Association for Cultural Enrichment at Rice, the Republican National Hispanic Assembly and the Harris County Tejano Democrats.
