[ARCHIVED] Nassau County Executive Curran's Statement Regarding the President's May 23rd Visit

County Executive Curran Statement

Mineola, New York –Statement from Nassau County Executive Laura Curran:

“I have accepted an invitation from the White House to attend a round table on the topic of gang violence hosted by President Trump which underscores the need for more funding and improved strategies in fighting gang violence. It is a unique opportunity to directly seek more federal funds and assistance for law enforcement to combat gangs and gain resources for community groups to keep our youth from joining gangs. I am going to pause and emphasize the words “our youth.” In many cases these children are high-school aged, or event younger, and pressured to join a gang. We need to help our community groups and family members reclaim their children who have been lured by or forced to embrace gang activity. Any and all help will always be appreciated in our fight to protect and save our youth from gang violence.”
