Immigrant advocates hold candlelight vigil in Nanuet Saturday

The Rockland Immigration Coalition will on Saturday hold a candlelight vigil to protest hate crimes in the area and across the nation.

Organized by the Rockland Immigration Coalition, an immigrant advocacy organization, the vigil will give members of local faith, civil rights and human rights groups the opportunity to join together to commemorate the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and to call attention to the intolerance against immigrants that has been highlighted by the recent murder of two Hispanic men, one on Long Island and the other in Brooklyn.
