Caught in the Act!
June 1st, 2010

Add council members Brad Lander, Danny Dromm and Julissa Ferreras to the recently arrested list at City Hall.

No, this wasn’t Larry Seabrook-style.

Lander, Dromm and Ferreras were arrested downtown today during a protest with the New York Immigration Coalition, which has demonstrated in front of the federal building in Lower Manhattan several times in the past month in support of comprehensive immigration reform. In May, council members Ydanis Rodriguez, Jumaane D. Williams, Melissa Mark-Viverito and Assemblymember Adriano Espaillat were all arrested in similar demonstrations.

After booking, Lander did have time to update his facebook status — see below.

Lander, Dromm and Ferreras have all been released.

    It’s been a long time my fellow political junkies and I hope all is well. I just wanted to inform each of you of my new political talk show called Across The Aisle. A new episode can be seen every Sunday at http://www.acrosstheaisle.tv . The episodes are only about 20 minutes each with 2 separate segments, which debates political issues from both a Democratic and Republican perspective.

    ‘Across The Aisle’ is hosted by Saquan Jones, James Davermann and John Mensah. We are always looking for weekly guests and show ideas, so please don’t hesitate to contact me at saquan at hotmail dot com to submit anything you would like including your feedback.
