Park City Community Meeting – Recent Arrests

In response to very real fears expressed by many in the aftermath of last Friday morning’s arrests of four Hispanic men in the Park City community, citizens have organized a community discussion for Thursday, February 23 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at the Blue Roof off SR224 near Parley’s Park Elementary School.  The discussion will begin at 6:00 p.m.

All who are concerned or uncertain are invited to join the discussion which will be moderated by People’s Health Center Director, Beth Armstrong.  Among the confirmed specialists are Summit County Sheriff Justin Martinez and Police Chief Wade Carpenter.  Invitations have been extended to Utah ACLU, Federal Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City and immigration advocates.

This is a community discussion, NOT a protest.  Please come with your questions and your ideas.  Be prepared to listen and contribute to a discussion on how we might best respond should we be faced with similar events in the future.  While we have been assured by Federal Agents that these arrests of targeted felons are routine and are conducted with appropriate search warrants and other legal and personal guarantees, we all need to understand the law.  We need to understand the difference between the jurisdiction of Federal Agents and the separate jurisdictions of Park City Police and Summit County Sheriff’s Department.  We also need to know where to go for special services for those affected or threatened by these arrests.
