Immigration reform meeting set for next week

The Consultative Immigration Reform Working Group will hold its next meeting at the Berkeley Institute on Wednesday, September 28.

The session, from 6pm to 8pm, will focus on mixed status families — with interested parties welcome to attend and share their opinions.

Group chairman William Madeiros revealed that the meeting's purpose was to “inform the public of important statistical information and clarify the definition of a mixed status family”.

“During the last series of meetings, the public said they wanted more data in order to make informed decisions on this topic,” Mr Madeiros said.

“We hope this information session will answer many questions that the public may have.”

Submissions can be made by calling 500-4664, e-mailing immigrationbda@gmail.com or visiting the group's drop box on the ground floor of the Government Administration Building on Parliament Street.
