A STATEMENT FROM THE DESK OF ASSEMBLYMAN STEVE HAWLEY

"The recent news that the federal government is looking at the old Wal-Mart building in Brockport to house illegal immigrants is deeply concerning to me. Our community is ill-equipped to handle such an undertaking and the undue stress it would place upon our local economy cannot be understated. It is imperative that we help these undocumented immigrant children temporarily, but upstate New York taxpayers can’t afford to be paying for their housing, healthcare and education long term.


“This consideration, coming on the heels of the decision not to use the Lexington Commerce Center in the town of Greece, needs to be addressed immediately and I encourage all my neighbors to contact the Office of Health and Human Services to express their personal concerns. Placing this facility in Brockport would inherently change the landscape of our town and I hope the federal government recognizes that when weighing their options.”
