Sorry Joe

Nice try

This epidemic happened on the Dubya watch.
Ive watched the illegal population on LI triple since 2000

You gotta stop listening to Rush brother....or is it Savage?
(Did you know thats not "The News")

Please stop whining about the Democrats and stop blaming the Kennedys
They didnt sell America out....the Cheneys et al did.
This is an exercise in Greed pal.

Remember...unless youre a Native American, your the son of an Immigrant too.
1965 was a VERY different time.

Bottom line...
Theres nothing more BizFriendly than exploiting slave labor
Theres no one more BizFriendly then our current Republi-Cons

What do the people on this thread think the impact of this will be on Long Island?

I think were going to see a rush of illegal immigrants from other states getting NY licenses and second we are going to see the multiplication of Farmingvilles all over the place.

I have already e-mailed my state assemblyman and state senator as well my Congressman.

I urge all of you to do the same.

I think its time for a REVOLUTION.

Gee, very sorry if I assumed you might actually let facts influence your positions. The 1965 act changed this countries entire immigation policy. Take 5 minutes away from this board and learn a little history. Yes, I am the grandson of immigrants, and with the 1965 restrictions, they probably would'nt be able to get here today. I'm intellectually honest enough to admit, as I said in my previous post, that Bush has dropped the ball on immigration. Can you be honest and admit that the politicians,including the sainted Kennedy's(sorry),who pushed for this legislation, did this country a huge disservice? I doubt it. I left Queens 20 years ago due to how the immigrants were changing my old neighborhood, and Brooklyn and the Bronx saw waves of new immigrants way before that. Don't see how even you can blame Bush for that.(but I'm sure you'll find a way!). LI isn't the whole world. Alot of things happening here now have taken place years ago in other places. Don't be afraid to expand your horizons. Oh, and please, stop drinking the coolaid brother!

Oh my Dittohead friend.

Im so sorry youre slave to the backlash.
Unfortunately you're rooting for the team that mocks you behind closed doors at the Country Club.

As Ive said before....
What's the matter with Kansas? is whats the matter with L.I.

What's the Matter with Kansas? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Regarding the NYC white flight of the 60s ...I blame Robert Moses.

Remember..as goes LI so goes the USA.

Are you better off now than you were 8 years ago?

Peace

Greed ,left unchecked, is cancer.

Are Canadians considered to be illigal aliens, or you only reffer to people from south of the US.

An Illegal Alien is an Illegal Alien. Case closed. If you didn't come here legally then you should be deported ASAP.
