To the Editor
I’m writing because I am outraged at the ideas expressed on the website of Robert Outhouse who is running for County Legislator. I will quote the paragraph of his titled “Overcrowding - Immigration Reform.” “ … What supporters of illegal immigration are really supporting are … child trafficking, incest and rape.” WHAT?! These are loaded comments that wreak of misinformation at best and bigoted comments that wreak of conspiracy theories at worst. I’m both personally offended and offended for my fellow citizens who may or may not be undocumented. What is he thinking? No one WANTS illegal immigration – not even those who have to make the hard decision to stay here illegally! Then to imply that people like myself who are concerned for the wellbeing and rights of the undocumented in my community are FOR incest, rape and sex trafficking (and also imply that the undocumented are committing those crimes), SERIOUSLY?! It’s honestly the first time I’ve ever come across this train of thought and I find it dangerous. Catherine Borgia has been working for her constituents in regard to this issue – from the case of Diego Puma detained by ICE on the morning of his prom to the DACA recipients who call Westchester home. When you cast your vote for County Legislator, cast it for the person with experience and knowledge, someone who cares about the rights of her constituents - Catherine Borgia. While I commend Mr. Outhouse for his years of service I fear what may happen with him as a legislator.
