Immigration forum1

Several Northern California civil rights organizations jointly sponsored a “Know Your Rights” forum March 11 at Irvington High School in Fremont, Calif. “There are lots of mixed messages. People are very unclear about what their rights are,” Anu Natarajan, program director at the League of Women Voters of the Tri-City area, told India-West.
