From the Queens Courier:
It felt like Christmas in April for one Queens organization.
Nearly 100 people – all with smiles on their faces – filled Make the Road New York’s Jackson Heights office on Thursday, April 8, but instead of waiting for Santa Claus with a stack of presents, they were waiting for Congressmember Joseph Crowley who was bringing his own special gift to the group.
Crowley presented Make the Road New York – a group that focuses on promoting economic justice, education and opportunity for all New Yorkers – with a check for $300,000 to help support ongoing adult education programming and legal aid initiatives.
Crowley, who has been a leading proponent for immigration reform, also praised the group’s recent efforts for sending nearly 90 buses with people to Washington D.C. to rally for immigration reform.
“I believe with your support and your help we will get there,” Crowley said.
P.S. Joe's immigration reform plan entails legalizing everyone now here without permission and extending invitations to the rest of their families back home so we have a surplus of Democrats.
