Here’s John Delgado, the business manager for Local 79 of the Construction and General Building Laborers, on the City Hall steps earlier today criticizing the immigration bill in Congress — and the immigrant members of Congress who are supporting it.
“Shame on those people in Washington,” Delgado said. “And you know what, funny part is, some of them are immigrant themselves. They have forgotten where they came from. Shame on them. Wake up. Somebody should smack them on their head and wake them up.”
A representative of the United Federation of Teachers who was at the rally told me she supported everything Delgado said.
