ROCHESTER, Minn - Less than a week after dozens of CURE (Communities United for Rochester Empowerment) members rallied, making claims that Olmsted County Sheriff Kevin Torgerson is helping to detain immigrants, the group is planning a community meeting to bring the conversation to a larger audience.

According to a press release from CURE released Thursday, the group invited both Interim Police Chief John Sherwin and Sheriff Torgerson to take part in the community forum to discuss immigration and public safety issues.  It is set to be held at Longfellow Elementary School on June 19 from 6 to 8 pm.

We have reached out to Sheriff Torgerson. He says he won't be able to attend the public meeting, and a formal response will be released soon.
