Former Reagan administration diplomat Alan Keyes is slated to speak in Utah June 21 at the Provo City Library's ballroom on the topic "Solutions to America's border crisis."
Also speaking will be Carmen Mercer, spokeswoman for the national Minuteman Political Action Committee.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. Mountain Time, and is free and open to the public.
The speeches--which will be preceded by a free screening of the prize-winning documentary "Cochise County: Cries from the Border" and followed by a question and answer session--will address America's ongoing political debate over border security and immigration reform.
Key points of focus will include the national security and public policy implications of failing to protect our borders; President Bush's latest border security proposals; analysis of conflicting House and Senate immigration bills; and Mexican President Vicente Fox's recent visit to Utah, which included an address before the Utah State Legislature.
A leading voice in the current immigration debate, Ambassador Keyes served 11 years in the U.S. State Department. Under President Reagan, he was Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations. Prior to that, he served as ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, where he represented the interests of the United States in the UN General Assembly.
Keyes supports the efforts of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, a volunteer border watch organization that monitors illegal incursions into American territory, and whose volunteer membership is building a privately-funded fence to help secure the U.S.-Mexican border.
Said Keyes of his visit, "I always look forward to coming to Utah. This is a state where the people are committed to the faith, values, and decency that have made this nation strong and free."
The event is sponsored by RenewAmerica, Utah Eagle Forum, and Minuteman Political Action Committee.
