NEW YORK, April 12 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Immigration reform topped the agenda at the inaugural monthly New York City Latino Roundtable held April 6 at the New York offices of the law firm of Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar, P.C. and 1-800-CANTASO.

The roundtable, moderated and organized by FKMS partner William Ferro Esq., brought together government officials, including representatives of City of New York Council Speaker Christine Quinn, as well as representatives of community and immigration groups.

Immigration reform proponents urged attendees at the roundtable to contact their local, state and federal government leaders to support reform of the current system. They also noted that a huge immigration rally, expected to attract thousands, is to be held on May 1 to commemorate International Workers Day. Last week, President Obama pledged to overhaul the current immigration system. Currently, there are 12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States that will be affected by any change.

Attorney Kenneth Mangano, a partner in the law firm, outlined recently enacted federal laws designed to support all day laborers who are working at construction locations. Many of the firms clients are Latino laborers who contact the firm through the 1800-CANTASO phone number.

Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar, P.C. is a full service law firm with offices in Manhattan and Long Island. For more information on future meetings of the New York City Latino Roundtable, contact William Ferro at (212) 244-7676.
