Tonight, at 10:00 pm EST, Lawrence O’Donnell will host an MSNBC Special Town Hall Event on ”Immigration and Latino America” with the Executive Director of Voto Latino, Maria Teresa Kumar.  Check out their teaser:

The event, which will take place at the University of San Diego, is intended to take an in-depth look at the issue of immigration and the increasing role that the Latino population is playing in American life and politics.  More specifically, according to the press release issued late last week by Voto Latino:

The special town hall event will examine the state of immigration in the United States including the influence of the Latino voting block on the 2010 midterm elections, how Arizona’s immigration laws have affected national progress, and if the American Dream is still attainable for new generations of immigrants. The discussion will also present viable solutions for moving the country forward.

The guest list includes actress and activist Rosario Dawson, Telemundo’s Jose Diaz Balart, Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles Alfonso Aguilar, Democratic strategist and pollster Celinda Lake  (view her recent polling on immigration here), and Dr. David Shirk, Director of the Trans-Border Institute at the University of San Diego.  And be sure to look out for America’s Voice’s Executive Director, Frank Sharry, answering questions for the audience during the two-hour event, following the panel discussion.
