Univision to Hold Town Hall Forum On Immigration

Thursday, 13 May 2010 12:14 PM


Spanish-language Univision television plans a town hall-style meeting Friday to discuss immigration issues in the wake of Arizona's passage of a law that some critics fear could lead to racial profiling.

The nation's most-watched Spanish-language network will air the session at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific. It will be held at Univision's Miami studio, with reports from the network's Phoenix affiliate. Hispanic leaders, immigration law experts, politicians and Arizona officials will participate.

Univision also said Thursday it's working with The Associated Press on a poll of the Hispanic community's views on immigration reform and the new Arizona law set to take effect next month.

The new law requires police enforcing another law to question a person about his or her immigration status if there's "reasonable suspicion" the person is in the country illegally.
