Federal immigration policy and rhetoric has been having an impact on communities across Orange County. Local immigrant communities expressed fear earlier this year after raids by federal immigration officials led to several immigrants being taken into custody across the Triangle.

Sijal Nasralla representing the group SumOfUs, advocacy organization El Centro Hispano representative Eliazar Posada and Carrboro Board of Aldermen member Damon Seils discussed the current mindset of the local immigrant community and what local government and residents can do to be more involved on the WCHL Community Forum.
