Statement and Petition - East Hampton Illegal Immigrants

Statement and Petition by East Hampton, N.Y. resident requesting the town to address the "situation of illegal immigrants," ca. 2001. The writer described himself as a longtime resident of East Hampton with a wife and children. He listed the "problems" caused by an "uncontrolled influx" of "foreign workers" to the community as increased litter, petty crime, "stabbings (murder?)," DWIs and accidents, diminishment of affordable housing, and an increase in drivers' insurance bills. The accompanying petition demanded that elected officials of the Town of East Hampton enforce housing laws and question the INS "about its duties." The name D. Glennon appeared at the bottom of the petition with an address.
