Tim Bishop to Speak to Farmingville Group

First Congressional District Representative Tim Bishop is scheduled to appear at the Friday January 7 meeting of the "Greater Farmingville Community Association" at the Sachem High School in Farmingville. This is according to a newsletter sent by Ray Wisolmierski, the group's leader. The group was formerly known as 'Sachem Quality of Life'. Their militant anti-immigrant stance has garnered headlines and criticism in Newsday and other periodicals but there are others who rally around their cry to deport illegal immigrants.

Wisolmierski issued a Christmas message in which he referred to immigrants as "invaders and occupiers". He cited the acceptance by Mr. Bishop and Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy of invitations to speak to the Farmingville group as evidence of their legitimacy as leaders in a campaign to turn back the invaders. The government, Wiesolmirski said, "cannot protect the rights of the illegal without infringing on the rights of the legal".
