Illinois State House District 49 issued the following announcement on Jan. 7.
To help immigrants and their families understand their rights under the law, State Representative Karina Villa, D-West Chicago, is sponsoring a series of free seminars that will cover a variety of topics with support groups during the month of January. "The hateful rhetoric and false information that continues to leave Washington has caused immigrant families to feel insecure around the country and here in our community," Villa said. “As the daughter of immigrants, I think today it is more than ever critical that we help families understand their rights as immigrants and the limits of what the government can do. I urge local residents to participate in one of these events to learn useful and important information. "
Villa is inviting the community to accompany her to one of her Seminars on her Rights to learn information about immigration legal services in and her rights in the United States. All events will be in Spanish and will be held in the Lutheran church of St. Andrew, which is located at 155 N. Prince Crossing in West Chicago. Available events:
• Friday, January 17 at 7 p.m. - The Public Office Rule • Friday, January 24 at 7 p.m. - Immigrants and the Canabis • Friday, January 31 at 7 p.m. - Know your Rights
"As a proud Latina, I will continue to fight against discrimination because no one should live with the anxiety of being harassed or treated immorally by their government," Villa said. “I urge the community to participate in one of these events while continuing to work for policies that protect our families.”
