本地在黑泽尔赫斯特移民最近有一个惊喜,欢迎访问国家代表格雷戈里ł. 霍洛威, 锶. 在密西西比河Hazlehurst的移民权益联盟上周六举办的社区圈会议, 五月 22ND. 国家代表霍洛威, 老, 长期的朋友和盟友的密西西比河移民权益联盟和密西西比河立法黑人核心小组的主要成员, 在当地Taqueria的突访, 讲西班牙语的移民,不要害怕成为在当地社区更积极参与政治热情鼓励小型聚会.

国家代表霍洛威, 老, who represents Mississippi House District 76-Clairborne, Copiah, Hinds Counties, spoke about his involvement in the Mississippi Legislature over the past 14 岁月, and the different committees that he currently serves on in the Mississippi House of Representatives. Representative Holloway is the Vice Chairman of Universities and College Committee, and also serves on the Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency Committee, Ethics Committee, Rules Committee, and several other important committees in the Mississippi House of Representatives. This is crucial, because Representative Holloway has played a very important role in preventing a whole slew of anti-immigrant bills from coming to fruition here in Mississippi.

After speaking through the Spanish interpreter, Organizer Juan Carlos, Representative Holloway handed out his business card to all of those in attendance, telling the immigrants to not ever hesitate calling on him at his personal residence if they ever needed any assistance. After the meeting ended, Representative Holloway stayed to have lunch with the MIRA Organizers and immigrants in attendance, eating soft chicken tacos prepared and served by the Dos Hermanos Taqueria in Hazlehurst.

According to MIRA Lead Organizer Kathy Sykes, “The whole purpose of us going into various communities and having these meetings is to inform the local immigrants about their rights and responsibilities as aspiring citizens, and whenever an important legislator such as Representative Holloway can go out of his way to make a personal appearance at a meeting like this on a Saturday, well that was inspiring to folks in attendance. This was probably their first time ever to personally hear directly from a state legislator.”
