AURORA, Colo. -- A large crowd gathered Thursday night at Aurora Central High School for a community meeting about immigration.

Nearly 200 people packed into the school's library to hear a panel discussion and get answers to post-presidential election questions.

Among them was Leela Timsina, formerly of Bhutan.

Aurora police Chief Nick Metz and 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler were part of the panel who answered questions and concerns people in attendance had about what the future might hold.

It was clear immigrant and refugee policy as it relates to the new incoming Donald Trump administration was the hot topic of the night.

Timsina went to help others like him take a post-election deep breath.

He was there with high-profile and other members of the Aurora community in the school library, which serves as a "Stress-Free Zone" for those wanting to learn more about immigrant and refugee policy.

Dr. Mara Kailin with the Aurora Mental Health Center organized the get-together.
