 Four people from Alabama visited the White House on Wednesday to discuss immigration.

Evelyn Servin of Russellville was among the small delegation affiliated with the Alabama Coalition of Immigrant Justice.

The group was invited to a special meeting designed to bring state government leaders and immigration experts together to share best practices and explore ways the federal government can engage with communities.

The group also talked about how to strengthen pathways to citizenship.

Servin said she was looking forward to the opportunity "to discuss how the administration's appalling record of mass raids, detentions and deportations affects immigrant community integration."
