Radical Working Families Party Candidate Gonzalez: Soft on Crime and Illegal Immigration. Espinal is choice for 54th Assembly Race
While Rafael Espinal has been running a race to represent hard-working, law abiding citizens of the 54th Assembly district and supports the safety of the citizens as well as safe, legal immigration to benefit the community and families of the district, it appears his opponent, subscribing to the Working Families Party’s doctrines, does not carry as much respect for the people of the district.
While crime is of concern to all parents and citizens, Gonzalez’ Working Families platform calls for reducing sentences and freeing drug dealers. They are more interested in equal rights for drug dealers than the law-abiding citizens who have to live with drug-dealing on their streets, often near their children.
While, legal immigration practices and national security are paramount concerns, Gonzales’ Working Family’s Party platform calls for “Legislation requiring public agencies and private businesses to accept appropriate identification issued by foreign consulates (“matriculas consulares”) in place of a New York-issued photo ID.” Does he seriously want agencies to accept such easily-forged and unverifiable identification. If a person is a legal immigrant, then they can get legal identification. Does the WFP and does Gonzalez have such little respect for the sovereignty of New York State?
We have to ask what or who Gonzalez stands for?
We already know that Rafael Espinal respects the law and the members of the community and will work within the Assembly to serve them. He adheres to principles and has the ability to lead and to govern. The 54th Assembly district needs Espinal and not Gonzalez and his Working Families Party comrades.
