Daily News comments on Steve Levy’s anti-immigrant joke

KW: Democratic Party politician Steve Levy is the Suffolk County Executive. Under his tenure, there have been many proposals and many controversies about getting tough on the immigration issue. In 2007, the Green Party of Suffolk County ran a candidate against Steve Levy, largely as a way to reject Steve Levy’s anti-immigrant stances and rhetoric.

Steve Levy was re-elected as County Executive in 2007. Though, with current events–including the murder of immigrant Marcelo Lucero by teenagers who said they were “hunting Mexicans”–the community is taking a fresh look at Steve Levy and his interaction with the immigration issue.

The latest controversy is an unpleasant joke Levy told at a fundraiser. Newsday reported the joke. The Daily News has just published an excellent opinion piece on the situation: here. (Excerpts only at read more.)
