Viverito’s Sanity & Motives Should be Questioned
Capano: NYC Taxpayers Should Stand-Up & Speak-out
Bob Capano, the leading Republican candidate for the 43rd Council District (Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach, Bensonhurst) and a fighter for fiscal restraint, today called on New York City over burdened taxpayers to join him in speaking out against City Council Speaker Melissa Mark Viverito’s outrageous plan to allow illegal aliens who are violent felons to have access to free legal services to fight deportation. The legal services would be funded by $16.4 million in taxpayers money. Capano called Speaker Viverito’s plan “total lunacy that must be stopped.”
City Council candidate Bob Capno said, “City Council Speaker Melissa Mark Vivertio’s plan to allow illegal aliens access to free legal services is total lunacy that must be stopped. It’s crazy enough that the city is allocating $16.4 million in taxpayer funds to provide legal services to illegal aliens facing deportation. But, one has to question the sanity and the motives of anyone who would add violent felons and others convicted of egregious crimes to the list.
“Tax dollars should be used for the benefit of the taxpayers of our city, who are already burdened by some of the heaviest tax bills in the nation. If Speaker Viverito cared about our city and its citizens she’d allocate the funds to the NYPD, the Administration for Children’s Services or any number of programs for at risk kids over the upcoming summer vacation. Even Mayor de Blasio, as liberal as he is, opposes Speaker Viverito’s plan. That’s how bad it is.
“Let’s use the money to benefit people who aren’t criminals! The taxpayers of this city need to stand-up and speak out against this ridiculous and dangerous plan.”
