El Sol a bright light in immigration debate

November 20th · No Comments · Florida Weekly

Talking with Jupiter Councilman Jim Kuretski.

From my latest Florida Weekly commentary, Jupiter Councilman Jim Kuretski on the El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center:

“My position as an elected official is that any federal immigration policy reforms must take local community perspectives into account. And when we analyze why we have had no action for years, it’s my take that the inability of the federal government to effectively deal with immigration related issues is because there are such hardline positions on both sides of the debate, and there’s a willingness by federal officials to take a do-nothing approach year after year after year.”

In the meantime, he said, all the basic misperceptions have been disproved in Jupiter. “We’re grateful that we have our immigrant residents.”
