Illegal immigration will be Lifetree Cafe topic

Possible responses to illegal immigration will be discussed at noon on Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe , 19 S. Third St.

The program, titled “An Immigrant in the Sanctuary: When Faith and Politics Collide,” features a filmed interview with the Rev. Mike Morran, whose church offered sanctuary to Arturo Hernandez Garcia, an undocumented immigrant. Garcia moved into the church basement knowing he faced immediate deportation should he leave the church building.

Garcia also appears on camera.

“Arturo has worked in the U.S. for over 15 years, and his wife and two daughters are here,” Morran said of Garcia. “There are a lot of good reasons this man should be able to stay with his family.”

At this Lifetree episode, participants will have the opportunity to share their views concerning illegal immigration, immigration reform, and responding to undocumented immigrants.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
