New Yorkers Rally for Immigration Reform
- New York 11/23/2015 by Linda Perry (WBAI News)

New Yorkers are not afraid and won’t become victimized by paranoia, fear mongering and rhetoric that has been surfacing after the Paris attacks. That’s the message from New York City Council Member Carlos Menchaka. He said many of our national leaders are feeding hate and fear and are disconnected with what he sees on the ground.

Menchaka who is chair of the Council’s Committee on Immigration represents a large Asian and Latino immigrant population. He says people in his communities are hoping for immigration reform. They are workers who pay their taxes, who contribute to their local schools, families who are united, who want to come out of the shadows.
