State Rep. Davis plans 2nd illegal immigration town hall

A local state representative is planning a second illegal immigration town hall for next week.

State Rep. Michelle Davis, R-Whiteland, has organized a town hall with local officials focusing on illegal immigration and how the country’s border crisis is affecting local communities. It will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Pleasant Township Trustee’s Office, 70 N. Railroad St., Whiteland.

Davis will be joined in the town hall by Johnson County Commissioners Brian Baird, Kevin Walls and Ron West, Franklin Mayor Steve Barnett and Indiana 6th District congressional candidate Jefferson Shreve — all Republicans.

Community members and local businesses are also invited to share their perspectives on a perceived “lack of border security” and how it is affecting them. Davis is looking forward to meeting and gathering ideas from those she represents to best serve the community at the Indiana Statehouse, according to a flyer provided by Davis.
