Southampton Rally In Support of Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Waving American flags and hand-made placards, Neighbors in Support of Immigrant members and their supporters rallied for comprehensive immigration reform at a noontime rally at the Lola Prentice Park in Southampton on Saturday, May 1.

With signs proclaiming “No One Is Illegal,” “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Now,” “Immigration Reform Not Deportation,” and other poignant messages, the approximately 80-strong rally participants sought to demonstrate that immigration reform is urgently needed to secure humane treatment of immigrants, reduce friction among citizens, and provide economic security for all and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented workers.


Numbers Grow In Search Of A Safe Haven Across The East End

"This is my fourth winter with Maureen's Haven, and I think this winter has been the biggest challenge. We thought last winter was the biggest challenge when the numbers jumped up initially in the first couple of weeks because of a cold snap in November. Then the numbers shot up and hit highs of 62 in January and February. Now we're talking highs of 82 a night already in January."
