New York City is a sanctuary city, and is proud of its diverse immigrant community.

That’s why it’s harrowing to see signs like the one above posted along Skillman Avenue, right here in Sunnyside.

On Sunday, Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer found the signs posted at 35th Street and Skillman Avenue. He tore down the sign and ripped it up. You can see the video, which he posted on Twitter, below.

Earlier this morning, Van Bramer joined local immigration advocacy groups to denounce the signs and anti-immigrant actions in the neighborhood.

Van Bramer confirmed that the white supremacist group Vanguard America was responsible for creating the sign. Similar ones have been posted in Nebraska, Washington and Pennsylvania.
