The S.C. Hispanic Leadership Council believes its voice is missing from the state’s immigration debate.
Now, the council wants to be involved as politicians debate more than a dozen immigration bills that have been filed this legislative session.
“We didn’t just want to come to a meeting where everybody talks nice,” said Ivan Segura, the leadership council’s president. “We want to be effective.”
Have no fear, there's at least one group living up the promise of "not talking nice..."
“We need to have a more unified voice and get out there and talk to politicians so they’re hearing from others besides — pardon my expression — ignorant rednecks,” said Ken Carey, a member of the leadership council.
