To continue this fundamentally flaw bill, will only add flames to the fire of immigration discourse in Suffolk. Enough is enough.We should be forcebly insisting instead, that the US Senate and Congress come up with a bill that is comprehensive, humane and inclusive of our nation's history as a nation of immigrants. One thing is becoming clear, more Hispanics/Latinos (which by the way it is the largest growing segment of the US population) are becoming aware of their civic right to vote, and particularly here in Long Island, they will not forget when they exercise their right to vote, on what side the legislators were on.
Beedenbender is all bend on this, and I venture to say he will not get any Latino support now or in the future. He is a marked politician, just as Levy, and research and experience show that politicians that take the wrong approach to immigrants eventually end up loosing big on election time.
Take notice.

I understand and agree with Mr.Fries concerns for this bill and applaude him for taking measures to find a better alternative.
