The Place of Refuge in Manteca is playing host today to a “listening session” with Congressman Jeff Denham (R-Modesto) on the subject of immigration reform. It will be held from 8 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. in the church’s sanctuary.
This is open to the public and admission is free. Appearing with Denham to address immigration policies is special guest, Congressman Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee.
The Place of Refuge is located at 486 Button Avenue just north of East Highway 120.
From these “listening sessions,” Denham wants “to hear from (the public) about the critical issues facing our country and our community, (from) creating fair and respectful immigration policies, to helping to create good paying jobs, and improving our children’s schools…, and the answers are going to come from people like you, not the bureaucrats in Washington,” explains the congressman from the 10th Congressional District of California on his official web site. http://Denham.house.gov.

On Tuesday, Denham and Gowdy held a similar open forum on immigration issues at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church on Maze Boulevard in Modesto.
