Lifetree Cafe Hosts Forum on Illegal Immigration

Lifetree CafePossible responses to illegal immigration will be discussed at Port Clinton’s Trinity United Methodist Church Lifetree Café on Sunday, September 6 at 6:00 P.M.

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

Garcia will also appear on camera to explain his situation.

“Arturo has worked in the U.S. for over 15 years, and his wife and two daughters are here,” Morran says. “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 Café is located at Trinity United Methodist Church. 135 Adams Street, Port Clinton OH. Up the steps on the 2nd floor
