Hearing Will Focus on Immigration Act

The Orange County Human Relations Commission and the Hispanic Development Council of the United Way are sponsoring a public hearing Thursday on the impact of the Immigration Reform and Control Act.

The meeting will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Orange County Planning Commission hearing room at the County Hall of Administration, 10 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana.

There will be testimony from about 20 people, including Santa Ana Police Chief Clyde L. Cronkhite and Irvine Mayor Larry Agran, according to Robin Blackwell, spokeswoman for the Coalition for Immigrant Rights.

November marks the first month that Orange County’s 120,000 amnesty applicants can begin to apply for permanent residency, Blackwell said.
