Woman wants American Legion member removed over green card remark
A Lake Hopatcong resident says a member of the American Legion told her she couldn't purchase a hot dog without a green card at a Memorial Day parade on Monday.
Monica Reiff says the member's remark offended her. Reiff is Hispanic, but was born and raised in Bergen County.
The American Legion member claims he said, "Anyone could have a hot dog ? they didn't even need a green card." He says the comment was directed toward no one in particular.
Two apologies have been issued, but Reiff says it isn't enough. She wants the American Legion member to be removed from his post.
