The Global Leadership Project at Fort Hays State University is bringing an immigration speaker to campus Monday to discuss current immigration issues. 

Levita Rohlman, Garden City, has more than 30 years of experience working with family immigration. 

“We’re bring her to campus because there has been a lot of confusion with immigration laws,” said sophomore Carly McCracken, co-coordinator of GLP. “This is to help the campus as well as community members understand the laws and get questions answered.”

McCracken said many students expressed concern after Karl Rove visited campus April 2. 

“His immigration policies are interesting, to say the least,” McCracken said. “It sparked a lot of emotions afterward. People were angry, but didn’t have the knowledge to combat these views. 

GLP aims to provide students with enough knowledge to form an educated opinion on the issue. 

“Immigration isn’t talked about much, especially here on campus,” said senior Brenna Johnson, co-coordinator of GLP. “Hopefully it will spark some interest.” 

The event will take place at 6:30 p.m. April 14 in the Stouffer Lounge. It is free and open to the public.
