SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The 40th anniversary of Friendship Park will be celebrated Saturday.
The park near the Mexico border was dedicated in 1971 by then-first lady Pat Nixon and has since become a rallying site for immigration activists.
The celebration is scheduled to include music and distinguished speakers on both sides of the border. The celebration coincides with the announcement of a major shift in immigration policy. In some cases, illegal immigrants arrested for misdemeanors will get a chance to apply for a work permit, rather than being deported.
The event will also include an appearance by Henry Sanchez Pardo, a history professor who is running from Argentina to Alaska, and planting trees along the way.
