Immigration in Maine: Myths & Realities

Date & Time: Thursday, August 18th at 5:30pm 

Location: 96 Mabel Street in Portland


Joel Furrow, Executive Director of The Root Cellar, a volunteer organization that has been assisting impoverished neighborhoods in Portland since 1984, will speak on this topic.

Joel has spent many years working with various immigrant communities in Maine and is very knowledgeable on this subject.

On the agenda for discussion are items including the current status and the laws impacting immigration in Maine.  What can we do to solve the problems currently facing Portland as a result of increased immigration to our State? Who is immigrating to the State?  And are immigrants to Maine naturally more culturally conservative?


The Portland Republicans look forward to seeing you on Thursday, August 18th for an engaged discussion!


***Where our Happy Hour will be outdoors, should it rain heavily next Thursday, we have scheduled a rain date for Tuesday, August 23rd, 5:30pm at the same location.


Lastly, if you would like an Ed Thelander or Paul LePage yard sign to display on your lawn, please email chair@portlandcitygop.com to have one dropped off.
