Immigration: Bane or blessing?”

SEASIDE, Ca., March 29, 2018 -- CSUMB President Eduardo M. Ochoa hosted a facilitated dialogue at CSUMB at Salinas City Center on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 from 5:30-7 p.m. to discuss the issue of immigration in the United States. The event featured Dan Torres, Director of Immigrant Integration from the Office of Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and professor David R. Henderson from the Naval Postgraduate School.


“The goal of our community dialogues is to bring together people with different perspectives, promote understanding and build consensus. The issue of immigration, especially in the tri-county region, impacts all of us and we at CSUMB hope to provide an interesting and constructive forum for a constructive dialogue on the topic of immigration,” said CSUMB President Eduardo M. Ochoa.

The Community Dialogues event, made possible by a generous contribution from Bud and Rebecca Colligan, is in keeping with CSUMB’s role as a community resource, providing forums for provocative discussions that can impact thought and action on issues important to our community.

The next Community Dialogues event, scheduled for May 3, 2018 in at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds in King City, will focus on education in the United States and in the tri-county region.
