Its amazing how they mix legal immigrants with illegals, but this guy Bloomberg bends over backwards to aid illegals.

He says he is not running for President, but many believe he will. I hope he does not hold another public office.

Mr. Bloomberg’s order made an exception allowing police officers who suspect illegal activity to inquire about immigration status.

The mayor has not endorsed every suggested change in immigration policy, particularly when a proposal collides with his pro-business agenda. For example, he resisted calls to support a state bill, signed into law last month by Gov. David A. Paterson, to set stiffer penalties for employers who underpay workers, many of them illegal immigrants; Mr. Bloomberg’s aides say he was concerned about its effect on small businesses.

Yes when they say immigrants they usually mean undocumented illegals. And about Bloomberg, never more shocked when watched C-Span of Congress where Bloomberg and Murdoch (owner of Fox News) were promoting Comp. Immigration Reform to legalize illegal aliens. It was like watching the "outer Limits". All this right in the middle of our recession....Bloomberg repeating 'Illegals' do the work Americans will not do in all but a few rare exceptions. The room of liberals talking about how wonderful immigration is, telling Murdoch this to get him to talk and asking him about his immigration story, he didn't say much. Maxine Waters asked Murdoch if he could use his power to influence Fox News audience! He replied, well there are many (employed) at Fox who are on our side. There was one conservative there who was squashed. At the end, the Black chairwoman? said to the room "I have to tell you all that there are people watching this (on tv) who are thinking what's all this talk about immigrants when I don't have a job. No one replied to this.

Another globalist in the wings. We need to rid ourselves of these cheap labor globalist type politicians. Let them face unemployment like the Americans they are trying to put out of work.

And though he has adopted landmark policies to protect the privacy of illegal immigrants, he has also rankled immigrants’ advocates who say city and police officials work too closely with federal authorities, putting many noncriminals at risk of arrest and deportation.
Will someone please tell the morons at the NYT that people that violate immigration laws are criminals.

Stiffer penalties for not paying enough, but knowingly hiring them is justified.
This is worse that not enforcing the fedral laws, it's going against them..

Some have characterized New York City as one huge United Nations organization. It is more like the Tower of Babel than anything else. The loyalties of this polyglot city are epitomized by its mayor. He gives precedence to illegal aliens over the wishes of ordinary citizens. Sad!

There are parts of NYC that would turn into a ghost town if all the illegals left the city.

He does not realize he and the morons in my State and how they feel about illegal immigration are our problem, this is exactly why we have the problems with illegal immigration that we do. I was watching a cable news program the othere day, did not really pay attention which one it was, but Pelosi was on there, being interviewed. She was being hammerd on Dem spending since they took office and immigration stance. She sidestepped the issue, refused to talk about it. Went on to say well what the American People want us to do, blah blah blah, lie lie lie! The women has excuses for everything, she gets on my last nerve, ready for her and the whole Clan, to just go.
