Statement from Board of Legislators Chairman Mike Kaplowitz on County Executive’s Veto of the Immigrant Protection Act

“The County Executive’s veto of the recently passed Immigration Protection Act is ill advised, wrong and insensitive to the most vulnerable in our society. It endangers public safety by discouraging certain individuals from reporting gang behavior and other criminality to law enforcement.


“More importantly, The County Executive's decision to hold a press conference celebrating his veto displays a serious tone-deafness delivered in the shadow of President Trump’s inexplicable, anti-American and shocking embrace of neo Nazi’s and white supremacists.”
