Congressman Joe Crowley calls for unity on immigrant issue - Bengali
Source: Khabor, a weekly Bengali source from New York, NY.
Translated Summary: Joe Crowley, Chairman of the Bangladesh caucus in the US Congress and Chief of the Democrat caucus, exchanged greetings with Bangladeshi immigrants at an Irish Day celebration at a party hall in Queens, New York, on March 11. In order to emphasize the rights and dignity of immigrants, he called on everyone for unity on immigrant issue and expressed his disagreement with the anti-immigrant steps taken by Trump’s government. He urged everyone to reply to President Trump’s anti-American policy in the midterm election in November. A Democrat victory in Congress can stop Trump from taking further anti-immigrant measures. Queens is the home of the majority of the immigrants. Queens Borough President Melinda Katz assured everyone that Trump’s policies are against American values and will not be followed in Queens.
