Join Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone in Support of Immigration Reform


On Tuesday at 11AM, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone will join immigrants from across Suffolk County on the Long Island Railroad platform in Brentwood to call for comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship. Since assuming leadership of a county that had previously been plagued by anti-immigrant politics, County Executive Bellone has worked to create a welcoming environment for immigrants in Suffolk County. Standing with immigrant community and union members in front of a powerful new pro-immigration reform advertisement from Local 32BJ (SEIU), County Executive Bellone will publicly announce that he stands with Long Island’s congressional delegation in calling for a comprehensive immigration reform to fix our broken immigration system.

Bellone’s support echoes that of an overwhelming majority of Long Islanders. Earlier this summer, a Long Island-wide poll by Harstad Research showed that the vast majority of Long Islanders, 80 percent, supports comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) legislation that includes a path to citizenship for the nation’s eleven million undocumented immigrants.

WHAT: Press Conference with Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and immigrant Long Islanders supporting comprehensive immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship.

WHEN: Tuesday, August 20th, 11AM

WHERE: Brentwood Long Island Railroad station (near Brentwood Road and Suffolk Ave.), Brentwood, NY

WHO: Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, Make the Road New York, Local 32BJ (SEIU), New York Communities for Change, Long Island Civic Engagement Table, Long Island Wins, Organizing for America

VISUALS: County Executive Bellone joined by rallying community members in front of large print advertisement calling for immigration reform on the LIRR platform.
