Wells Insurance | Chucks Corner - ILLEGALS WITH DRIVER�S LICENSES?

The immigrant rights people staged a demonstration in Albany whining that Suddenly were criminalizing immigrants regardless of their status says Gouri Sadhwani, executive director of the New York Civic Participation Project.
Gouri Sadhwani says: Were forcing people underground. By finding illegals, I guess we are violating some kind of human right according to Sadhwani. I was curious as to who this Sadhwani is and what her organization, New York Civic Participation Project, really is about. According to their website, Sadhwani works for labor unions. These labor unions probably want to beef up their membership by enlisting illegals. Sadhwani is also an immigrant from India where poverty is rampant. I guess she figured we need more help than her own people.
