Are we talking about immigrants or Illegal Aliens? Just ask yourself when was the last to time you met a legal immigrant? How many Illegal Aliens have been dumped on us here in New York? You won't be able to answer that one because the Obama administration will NOT release that information.
Now don't you just love this statement by Cheryl Starace "Immigrant families and students are valuable. They bring their rich cultures to our region." That might be true if the were here legally. The only thing that Illegals do for our society is to increase our taxes to support them. Most of them come here for one purpose, to make money to send back to their families. They have no intention in becoming US citizens. The only ones that do, are those who apply legally and go through the immigration process. If you are here illegally then you shouldn't be able to go to school, receive welfare and get SS benefits. Giving illegals these perks only encourages more of them to come. Just why do some not understand the word ILLEGAL. They are NOT immigrants, they are illegal aliens.
Definition of Illegal Alien : 1.
a foreigner who has entered or resides in a country unlawfully or without the country's authorization.
a foreigner who enters the U.S. without an entry or immigrant visa, especially a person who crosses the border by avoiding inspection or who overstays the period of time allowed as a visitor, tourist, or businessperson. View Comment
"So many people who could vote are not even registered to vote" Do you think that even if these people were registered, they would vote? I think not. An even more important vote, that of the school budget is provably worse. With that vote you actually have a direct say on government and taxes. Just look at year after year the poor turnout. Then we hear that same old BS, why are are school taxes so high. Really? View Comment
It is high time that people who ride the rails actually pay for them. Why should people that have to drive to work be paying in part, for their train rides? Bridge and tunnel tolls were NOT meant to pay for fares on the trains and buses. They were instituted to pay off the construction bonds and pay for maintenance. The bonds have been paid off many, many years ago yet the tolls go up year after year.Why, to pay for the commuters. View Comment
He also noted the support that he received from the other side during his campaign, including from state Sen. Greg Ball. I want to thank the turncoat, Mr. Ball for his non-support of a fellow republican. Looks like we finally see the REAL Greg Ball for what he is, a RINO. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Your acts will follow you where ever you go. View Comment
Mildred, it is your memory that has failed. I was writing about her demeanor as the town supervisor. Yorktown is safe, why? It is even more dysfunctional that ever with her and Mr. Patel in control of the town board. View Comment
It seems that nobody in Yorktown that runs for office, has any allegiance to their party. When was the last time you saw a handout with a party affiliation on it? The politicians here in Yorktown change parties like you change your underwear. Maybe "Yorktown Voter" you might run for the position but I don't think you will. You would actually have to use your real name. View Comment
Not only will the "safe act" as it is called not made people safe but has actually hurt the law biding citizen. It has made the purchase of a gun by law biding citizens even harder. Do you really think that criminals actually follow the law? They don't and that is why they are called criminals.
The " safe act' is no more of a crime deterrent than the " Affordable Care Act " is affordable or caring. View Comment
leonard.martello:The endorsement by both the the Journal News and The New York Times should tell you some thing. Didn't they back Obama also? Sean Patrick Maloney is just one more of the yes men for the Obama administration and its policies. Just where does he stand on the ACA?
The " crazies" as you call them are the ones that want lower taxes and the repeal of the ACA. Call them crazy but maybe they are right and the tax and spend democrats are wrong. The estimated population of the United States is 319,324,947
so each citizen's share of this debt is $56,114.00. That is for every man, women and child. Just how o long can our county survive with this debt. The very sad part is that it is increasing each and every day. It is time for a change and not like the one we got with the election of President Obama. http://www.usdebtclock.org/
Change starts with electing people that want to lower taxes and make our country really energy independent. Sean Patrick Maloney will only continue to rubber stamp the Obama policies if he is re-elected. View Comment
The article fails to mention the speed of the motorcycle. He was doing over 100 MPH according to my source. Also NOT mentioned was the fact that he was a Dominican, a convicted felon, had a rap sheet a mile long and was driving with a suspended license.
You can also add this to the mix, At this point, not sure if the SP were in pursuit but a Trooper said he blew by him during a traffic stop.
This is what you get when you take money from the federal Government. There are always strings attached. The program is a plan from the progressive left muck like the Progressive Education System of the late 50's. A failure to a whole generation of our youth. Touchy , feely stuff with no substance. Bring back the basics, the three R's. View Comment
He has been a terrific congressman? I think you mean horrific don't you? He is marching in lock step with the President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. In six years the democratic party has done nothing to improve our economy. Talking about the EPA, just look at what they have done to the coal industry. Coal which supplies almost 47% of our electricity is being decimated by onerous regulations. The results are increased electricity rates. The President said he expects this to happen as a result of his policies on coal and even welcomes it in order to push his wind and solar power schemes.I use the word schemes because of Solindra and other failures similar to it.
We do not need more people with like thinking in congress. Look at Congressman Maloneys voting record. 95% support of the Presidents failed policies. Have those policies made things better? Over 65% of the people polled say no. View Comment
The question is did congresswomen Lowey actually " rebuilding our infrastructure, creating jobs, lowering taxes, and ensuring the Hudson Valley continues". She and Hillary promised these things for years. Do you see things getting better in New York State? Promises made and NOT kept!! More of the same if these two get elected, promises!
She walks in lock step with him and his administration. I was please that " "I am pleased that this coalition was formed," . A coalition of who, do do what?
"I expect that those countries in the region must be obligated to put their troops on the ground.", really? Name some of the coalition that is doing just that? This is probably the best statement "Lowey said American troops should not be on the ground fighting in the Middle East" Where was her objection when her President sent more troops into Afghanistan and said it was the war we should be fighting instead of Iraq ? She is a phony.
On election day I will be voting for a real American that will look out for OUR country, Chis Day. View Comment
George, I would suggest if t you don't like the way our constitution was written you should move to maybe Iraq or Iran for a while and see what it is like living without freedom. If you don't want to have the means to defend yourself and your family then so be it. Please don't try to take my right to do so. Gun control to many in the movement is to take away that right. They want no one to have a gun but the police or the military. Sounds like 1934 in Germany to me. View Comment
