Farmingville named one of most dangerous places for undocumented workers in U.S.

The Mexican Consulate says Farmingville is the second most dangerous place in the U.S. for undocumented workers, following the Arizona border.

Day laborer advocate Nadia Marin-Molina says many undocumented workers living in Brookhaven are scared they will be homeless after seeing many others kicked out of their illegal homes. She adds that since they are undocumented, they are not entitled to public shelter and are scared they will have to live on the street.

Suffolk County does offer shelter for one night to workers evicted from illegal housing. After the first night they must find their own shelter. Activists say they want to form a task force to help relocate the evicted immigrants.
