Immigrant Demonstration

Yesterday I covered a very interesting story in Oyster Bay. Latino immigrants were chanting and marching because they’re angry with an ordinance that was recently enacted. The ordinance makes it a crime to stand on a public sidewalk and solicit employment. Latinos were really upset because many of them they cannot find work any other way and they say they desperately need to provide food for their families. The town of Oyster Bay supervisor John Venditto says he’s sympathetic towards these immigrants and he is willing to sit down and work with them to find a solution to their troubles. To learn more, watch LI News Tonight at 7:00pm on Cablevision 18 and at 10:45pm on Fios 1.
