To the Editor,
This November’s election is more important than ever for New York State. There is a dangerous new proposed law sponsored by State Senator Rivera from The Bronx (the same lawmaker who proposed banning salty entrees at restaurants), and supported by Governor Cuomo and Assembly Speaker Sheldon, the mentor to local Assemblyman James Skoufis.
If Democrats win control of the Senate and Cuomo is re-elected Governor, Democrats plan on passing the “New York is Home” Act, which offers the most sweeping amnesty available in the USA to nearly 3 million noncitizens living in the Empire State, and to qualifying out-of-state illegal aliens who move to our state. Illegal aliens in New York will qualify for billions in Medicaid and college tuition money, will qualify for driver’s licenses, will get to vote in state and local elections, and will even be allowed to run for office.
We cannot permit this. This law will destroy New York’s current taxpayers, as it will cost us billions of additional dollars. It enables more voter and entitlement fraud.
We must elect Rich Cocchiara to the Assembly to fight Speaker Silver on this proposed law; the state Senate must stay in Republican control, and we must elect Rob Astorino our next governor.
