A Town Hall Meeting on Human Smuggling is scheduled for Tuesday, May 30 at 6 p.m. at the Mountain Home Volunteer Fire Department, 5475 Junction Highway in Mountain Home. The Kerr County Sheriff’s Office, Kerr County Commissioner (Pct. 4) Don Harris, and the Kerr County Sheriff’s Foundation invite all citizens to attend and learn more about human smuggling and the impact it has locally.
According to Harris, “Everyone needs to know what they can and cannot do if illegal immigrants end up on their property and the best course of action.” Additionally, at Tuesday’s event, an update will be given in regards to local law enforcement’s responses and the anticipated efforts of the end of Title 42.
“The ending of Title 42 will certainly have an effect on Kerr County, and we want to make sure our community understands what the current levels of activity will mean for them,” said Kerr County Sheriff Larry Leitha. Leitha added, “Our primary concern is the safety of everyone, and we hope to help all residents understand the wider picture, our response and risks associated with this felony criminal activity in our county.”
