"President's expected order on immigration draws hope, objections on LI"

Newsday reports:

Many Long Island immigrants and advocates are placing hope in President Barack Obama's promise "to fix as much of our immigration system" as he can through an executive order that could shield from deportation many living in the country illegally.

The article features comments from a Make the Road New York member:

A 40-year-old Mexican immigrant in Farmingville, who is a member of the advocacy group Make the Road New York but asked that her name be withheld, said her and her husband's sons, ages 8 and 12, and daughter, 14, were born on Long Island and live with that anxiety.

"The children ask us why don't we go to other places, to visit family or travel, and we tell them it's because we don't have papers," the woman said in Spanish. "I would like for that to end, for their sake."
