Bronx Immigration Forum, Sept. 9

State Senator Pedro Espada Jr. will be hosting a Bronx Immigration Forum on Sept. 9, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at Bronx Community College, 2155 University Avenue in the Gould Memorial Library.

Espada, who held a press conference today to announce the event, said he is holding the forum in response to a wave of bias attacks on immigrants in the Bronx, Staten Island and Long Island. Espada referenced the Sunday shooting, in broad daylight, of a 20-year-old man near St. James Park. There were perhaps dozens of witnesses at the park on Sunday when it happened, but no one has yet to step forward with information about the shooters. he said many of the immigrants may have been immigrants who were scared to come forward with information because they were scared of deportation.

Majority Conference Leader John Sampson is co-hosting the event. He didn't make it to the press conference, but Espada's state senate ally, Ruben Diaz Sr., did.


  1. Typical pandering. There has been a steady number of well publicized attacks on immigrants in and around Fordham, including an incident last year where a pair of Mexican immigrants were brutally off of 187th Street. Where the heck was he then?

    Guess what wabbit, too little, too late. I don't know too many latinos who are going to come to your aid after you have pretty much turned a blind eye to them and the rest of this community since you crawled out of your hole and into the 33rd. Now its time to crawl back!!

  2. Is coming from Mamoreneck to run for a Bronx office considered "illegal immigration"?

  3. Too little, too late, Pepito!
