Making The Case for Long Island's Latino Immigrants

While Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy's Archie Bunker-styled politics have made him wildly popular among white working class voters, a small but growing number of Long Islanders believe we can reach higher.

One such individual is Amy Hagedorn, a life-long area resident and philanthropist. She has funded Long Island Wins, a campaign making the case--economically and culturally--for the island's immigrants.

As part of this unprecedented campaign, Long Island Wins has begun airing pro-immigrant commercials on local television. The first commercial "Salida Del Sol" makes the case that America is enriched as a result of immigrants and their pursuit of the American Dream.

The second commercial "Pupusas" uses lighthearted humor to celebrate the economic and cultural contributions of Long Island's Latino immigrants.
