Slave labor in Corona

An Indian man who claims he was kept as a slave in Queens for years says he was repeatedly told "this is what happens to people with brown skin" and shown news clippings of terrorists jailed at Guantanamo Bay.


The lawsuit levels a host of charges at the Sharmas, including human trafficking, false imprisonment, forced labor, involuntary servitude, breach of contract and fraud, and seeks at least $1.2 million in lost wages.

A clear case of immigrants bringing nothing but revitalization to Queens...

Yet another reason to regulate the proliferation of questionable religious cults in Queens springing up in almost every neighborhood like weeds !

What happened to early investigation and swift enforcement in cases like these?

Our coffee & donut brigades at the local precincts often turn their backs on what they often consider situations like this to be .....low priority issues !

Truly spoken.

Immigrants first commit abuses against their own kind.

history has proven that far too often !
