"If I look at a map of the United States, Farmingville is clearly a red zone after the Arizona border," Sarukhan said in a news conference at the Hempstead headquarters of the Workplace Project, a nonprofit pro-immigrant group...Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have to deal with this crap?
Sarukhan called on Levy to meet with day laborers and advocates the county executive has called "extremists," including Nadia Marin-Molina of the Workplace Project, the Rev. Allan Ramirez of the Brookville Reformed Church and Patrick Young of the Long Island Immigrant Alliance.
"They are my friends and they have done a fantastic job in defending the day laborers," said Sarukhan, who also spent the day meeting with Latino leaders and politicians including Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington).
