[Salt-l] SALT Meeting Minutes 1/27/15
The Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) is the Spirit-led social justice ministry of the Chapel of the Resurrection at Valparaiso University in which students in community seek to embody the Christian call to be the ‘salt of the earth’ (Matthew 5:13).
GEO Group still wants to build an immigrant detention facility in Hobart. They are awaiting authorization from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Washington. But a group of local citizens continues to rally opposition to these plans.
On Sunday February 8, the Concerned Citizens of Hobart will present an open community forum. Featured speakers will be Nazry and Hope Muskatim, who have inside information about detention facilities from Nazry's stay in a GEO location in Texas. In addition Butch Morgan of South Bend will describe his experience in GEO's Newcastle, Indiana lockup. Fred Tsao, from the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, will detail some of the typical impacts these facilities have on the communities they enter. There will also be an update on the current status of GEO's plans in Hobart, and information about what citizens can do to express their views. The forum will be held at Augustana Lutheran Church, 217 N. Kelly St., Hobart at 4 pm.
