Tell the Suffolk County Legislature To Vote Down Anti-Immigrant Bills From Steve Levy

    1. Petition by

      Long Island Wins

The race for Suffolk County executive is officially underway, but one politician is missing from the headlines: In March, current Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy bowed out of the race and returned $4 million in campaign funds after the county district attorney’s office raised questions about improper fundraising within his campaign.

You’d think it would be time to regroup, maybe think about a second career, but Levy’s still trying to push local legislation targeting Suffolk immigrants. At a June 7 meeting of the Suffolk County Legislature, the county executive intends to introduce two employment verification bills, both of which would encourage discrimination against immigrant workers.

The Suffolk County Legislature needs to send a strong message to Levy that his penchant for anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric won't be tolerated anymore, even from a lame duck.

Sign this petition and tell the legislature to vote down these two bills, and to instead investigate the extent of Levy's corrupt fundraising.

      SOME PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY CANNOT READ,THIS BILL HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH LEGAL IMMIGRATION.IT HAS TO DO WITH EMPLOYERS HIRING ILLEGALS IN ORDER TO LINE THEIR POCKETS WITH MORE PROFIT.THEY ARE ABLE TO UNDER BID ON JOBS BECAUSE OF THE CHEAP LABOR COMPARED TO A COMPANY THAT FOLLOWS THE LAW ANDS PAYS S.S. TAXES AND INSURANCE FOR THEIR WORKERS. ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE BEING EXTORTED,,BUT BRING UP ANYTHING TO DO WITH IMMIGRATION REFORM OF ANY KIND YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF BRANDED AS A RACIST BY THE LATINO LOBBYISTS AND THE PEOPLE THAT BENEFIT BY HAVING MORE AND MORE OF THEM COME HERE. AS FOR STEVE LEVY,ITS ABOUT TIME SOMEONE TOOK A STAND ABOUT THE QUALITY OF LIFE HERE ON LONG ISLAND. I KNOW LETS BUILD HIRING HALLS ALL OVER LONG ISLAND AT THE TAXPAYERS EXPENSE ,IN FACT LETS BUILD THEM NEAR EVERY 7/11 ON LONG ISLAND.BTW SINCE I AM NOT LATINO OR ILLEGAL,AM I ALLOWED TO BE AT THE HIRING SITES???

      What is his problem, there are more important issues to be reviewed. I am sure that he has benefited in some way or another from the cheap labor, of illegal immigrants. Therefore, he should stop his own corruption.

      THIS BILL IS NOT ANTI-IMMIGRANT,,IT IS PRO-AMERICAN, FOR THE AMERICAN WORKERS THAT NEED JOBS!BUSINESSES THAT DO NOT HIRE ILLEGALS AND FOLLOW THE LAW CANNOT COMPETE WITH BUSINESSES THAT HIRE LOW-ILLEGALS.BY ATTACKING THE MESSENGER DOES NOT HELP YOUR CAUSE.STEVE LEVY IS FOLLOWING THE LAW AND UNDERSTANDS THAT THE QAULITY OF LIFE HERE ON LONG ISLAND IS BEING DRAINED BY THE ONSLAUGHT OF SO MANY ILLEGALS.LAME-DUCK???IS THAT THE BEST YOU GOT???TO PITCH YOUR POINT OF VIEW.

      Like double DWI Southeast Town Supervisor Michael Rights and State Senator Greg Ball, both from Putnam County, NY, the main reason why the likes of Steve Levy run on an anti immigrant platform is that they have nothing else to offer. By scapegoating a group, such as immigrants, they take the focus off the fact that they have no real solutions to the problems plaguing communities, such as the rich getting free rides at the expense of the middle class, or America spending countless hundreds of billions on the senseless war on drugs and wars in Iraq and Af-Gone-istan.

      A native NYer from Suffolk County. Levy had so much promise when he was first elected; it seems power does corrupt.
