- New York 11/19/2012 by Jose Santiago (WBAI)
Over the weekend, hundreds of immigrant day laborers showed up in hurricane ravaged communities to help hurricane victims clean up and restore their damaged homes. Teams of workers assisted homeowners on Long Island, Queens, parts of New Jersey and Staten Island. On Staten Island, they gathered Sunday morning at the offices of Staten Island Immigrant Center where WBAI’s Jose Santiago caught up with the dozens of workers who volunteered to help others.
