STATEMENT FROM MAYOR WAYNE J. HALL, SR. ON THE PRESIDENT’S EXECUTIVE ACTIONS
"President Trump's recent executive orders go against the moral fiber with which our great nation was built, and I wholeheartedly support New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio and countless other Mayors throughout the United States in denouncing these acts. The Village of Hempstead has a vibrant, diverse heritage that brings us together in a rich cultural tapestry, and I vow to protect all Village residents—regardless of race, religion or country of origin. As the son of immigrant parents, I have personally witnessed the strength created by a diverse culture of inclusiveness. As Mayor, I have done everything within my power to advocate for all of our residents and ensure that everyone, regardless of citizenship status, has the same opportunities for success. I, Mayor DeBlasio and leaders from many other communities throughout the country will work together to oppose these executive orders and protect the rights of all people."
