National Immigrant Integration Conference
- Brooklyn, New York 12/15/2015 by Linda Perry (WBAI)
While a Siena poll says New Yorkers want to keep immigrants and refugees out, NYC's Mayor and NY's Governor delivered a very different message at the National Immigrant Integration Conference being held in Brooklyn, New York.
"Who are they?" to keep out Mexicans and Syrians asked the Governor, "when we are all immigrants." De Blasio and Cuomo railed against anti-immigrant rhetoric and sentiment which permeates the nation's discourse and they spoke out about economic fear and anxiety which has gripped our nation, causing an anti-immigrant backlash.
