Polk County Board of Supervisors Statement on Threats to Immigrants

Friday, August 31, 2018

To the Polk County Community,

The Polk County Board of Supervisors are profoundly saddened to see the recent hate filled messages directed towards our immigrant community. The recent hate and threats of violence that have been reported on is simply unacceptable. We recognize that we are experiencing a time of deep difference of opinion but one thing should always remain constant and that is treating our fellow human beings with dignity and respect.
