 Lawrence O’Donnell Hosts with Voto Latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar live from the University of San Diego

NEW YORK – November 9, 2010 – More than 10 million undocumented immigrants live in the United States. On November 15, MSNBC, in partnership with Voto Latino, will present a special two-hour town hall event taking an in-depth look at the complex issue of immigration in America and the emerging role of the Latino population in American life and politics. The event, hosted by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell with Voto Latino’s Executive Director Maria Teresa Kumar, will air on 10 p.m. – 12 a.m. live from the University of San Diego.

The special town hall event will examine the state of immigration in the United States including the influence of the Latino voting block on the 2010 midterm elections, how Arizona’s immigration laws have affected national progress, and if the American Dream is still attainable for new generations of immigrants. The discussion will also present viable solutions for moving the country forward. Guests for the town hall will include actress and activist Rosario Dawson, Telemundo’s Jose Diaz Balart, Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles Alfonso Aguilar, Democratic strategist and pollster Celinda Lake, and Dr. David Shirk, Director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego.

One Response to “MSNBC & Voto Latino’s Special Town Hall Event on Immigration”

  1. I watched the entire show and thought that the counter arguments for the immigration system brought David (I.C.E. agent – not mentioned as a guest in your press release) had the most rational and logical points of all the other guests combined. Even though he was outnumbered 5 to 1, he adequately shot down the proponents each time he presented his opinion. I wonder how the audience reaction to talking points would have sounded if this was hosted at the University of Nebraska as opposed to San Diego. Amnesty, which is really what you are promoting, will add about 20 – 40 million new democratic voters and that’s really what motivates Lawrence O’Donnell.
