I wonder what she considers “significant” criminal record. And, when did illegal aliens become “immigrant New Yorkers?”

"It is in no one's interest to put the public at risk," Ms. Quinn and several other officials wrote. "At the same time, the deportation of immigrant New Yorkers who do not pose a public safety risk and do not have significant criminal records seems senseless, destroys families, ruins lives and is often simply cruel."

So I guess it isn't deemed "cruel" for these illegals to rape our tax coffers, steal jobs and identities from Americans?

It is never cruelty when citizens are being victimized by illegals. We are considered collateral damage.

Destroys families? What about their families when they left them to come here illegally? They sure didn't give a damn about their families then.

Many illegals have children they left behind in their own countries, children they never care if they see again. Deporting illegals can reunite families.

I saw Mayor Bloomberg on Sunday News show saying... "we want immigrants"...

I wonder why a mayor of one of America's greatest citys..."just doesn't get it?"...

I wonder why the people of NYC would vote such a person into office? Why isnt he out there fighting against this illegal invasion? Why is he inviting this invasion to NYC? Why arent the people of NYC running him out of town on a rail? Why arent the people of NYC e-mailing, faxing, and blogging this guy out of office?

Has Bloomberg confided in you that when he says “immigrants” he actually means “illegal aliens?” Or, is this just more wishful thinking/supposition?

Or, have you finally admitted that “immigrants” is just a euphemism favored by pro-illegals who are too disingenuous to call a spade a spade?

We can stop them without fences by not allowing them to work PERIOD. Wake up America there is a simple solution. If an employer is found to have hired an illegal, first time offense Hefty fine second time JAIL TIME. Take away the profit motive from both sides problem solved
Of course we need to remove all the magnets that keep them here and more from coming but it will take the cooperation of the president and congress to make it happen and that is the big problem right now.
