DULUTH -- The immigration policy debate is never far from the spotlight, and it will be front and center Tuesday at the Gwinnett Center.
Beginning Tuesday afternoon, the Georgia Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will host a public meeting on immigration. The purpose of the meeting, which begins at 2:30 p.m. at the Gwinnett Center, is to "examine immigration laws and their enforcement in Georgia in order to learn about effective implementation of immigration policy," according to a press release issued by the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials.
Panel speakers for the event are scheduled to include representatives from the Georgia Restaurant Association, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Gwinnett County Sheriff's Department and U.S. Immigration Services.
Members of the public will be allowed to make comments during the evening session, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Gwinnett Center is located at 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway in Duluth. For more information, visit www.galeo.org.
