Mayfield with Others Holds Know Your Rights Forum


Waukegan - State Representative Rita Mayfield is partnering with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, Catholic Charities and Hispanic American Community Education and Services, for a know your rights forum.

The forum will feature a presentation by Department of Justice Accredited Representative Jocelyn Jaramillo. Attendees will learn about their rights both as individuals and as families. It will be held on Thursday October 3rd from 6pm to 7:30pm at The Community Center, 914 8th Street in Waukegan in a safe and welcoming environment.

While the Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids arising from the policies of Donald Trump have not been in the news as much as when first initiated, they have continued.

"The people who emigrate to our community deserve the exact same dignity that we owe together as a society to every person. We are a melting pot, and that provides texture and makes us strong as a Nation. I will continue to fight to keep families together and stand up for every person in our community," said Mayfield. "Divisive, de-humanizing policies and rhetoric are not right here, and I will oppose intolerance with every fiber of my being."
