Right now, they just approved a bill (in a nearby, ultra-liberal county) to allow owners of SFHs, in SFH neighborhoods, to build modest "additional dwelling units" in their backyards! The county officials say that there isn't enough low-income housing in the county, but the truth is that it is so overrun with illegals due to their welcoming sanctuary county status (estimates are that 25% of county residents are illegal), that they cant find a place to rent. These "ADUs" will be very modest, and expectations are that they will be rented - for cash - by day laborers.

Democrats are allowing a formerly nice, middle-class neighborhood to be populated by male day laborers (most illegal) with no family responsibilities. They are putting the needs of illegals - to rent a cheap place with cash under the table - ahead of American citizens living in these neighborhoods, many of them older.


P.S. These liberals, in an effort to make things better for illegals, are ignoring complaints about overcrowding in these houses. There are neighborhoods where slum landlords scoop up these houses (which are dropping in price), and rent them at to three families at a time - for cash. The county looks the other way.

The immigrants quickly displaced natives in Portland's shelters, taking up 90% of the available beds and receiving over 70% of the city's welfare budget - not to mention getting additional money for lodging, food, free legal representation, and other "necessities" that the local taxpayers cannot access no matter what their situation.



And now that Portland is known as a "free money" destination, there are thousands more potential Somali & Congoese "refugees" in the pipeline. The local citizens have been left to deal with massive budget shortfalls, as well as living in fear as Somali and Congoese gangs take over local parks and viciously attack locals naive enough to enter the park

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbUl9y2_QLc, and now cases of locals being murdered by gangs of refugees are hitting media

To add insult to injury, federal taxpayer dollars pay the transportation cost of importing these refugees, in the form of a "loan" that is rarely paid off - since refugees typically rely heavily on public assistance 5 and 10 years down the line. Nonprofits like Catholic Charities, which didn't put up any of the loan money, nonetheless get to keep 25% of any repayment monies for their assistance in handling the paperwork. No wonder there is no shortage of nonprofits standing in line to "help" potential refugees access taxpayer money.


I have to wonder if Progressives truly intend to destroy the fabric of American society, or if they are simply so delusional that they refuse to look at the YouTube videos of vicious Somali gangs attacking the generous citizens of these Maine cities.
Dogs don't even bite the hand that feeds them.


These Somalis are lower than animals.

Oh he’s got an endless list of bad ideas, and is a complete con artist, liar, who shouldn’t have any authority within a civil society, let alone be the leader of NYC.

Deblasio is the disgraceful and disgusting face of the new left wing .... watched him interviewed on Hannity, and he is shameless. He kept dodging questions, while insisting that Hannity was using smokescreen arguments .... meanwhile, he unashamedly claims that there is plenty of money in America, though according to him, just “in the wrong hands” .... wants a 70% tax rate for the “wealthy”. He’s the self proclaimed new Robin Hood, apparently, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor... believes in at birth, unrestricted abortions, but refused to answer yes or no when asked if law abiding citizens should have the right to keep a firearm in their homes for self defense.... read: no.

It gets worse .... he believes in the New Green Deal, and wants to eliminate (through regulations and high costs) the use of glass and steel for building construction in NYC, and force current building owners to comply with regulations that will mandate the retrofit of current buildings to meet new Carbon emissions standards that will cost Billions, claiming they will make back the money over time in energy savings. When asked what he proposes as replacement for glass and steel skyscrapers... this clown says “well, I’m not an expert in building materials!! What? Then shut your mouth, and talk about something you do know something about (which should keep his mouth shut permanently).

And yes, he is another of the many progressive democrats who voted to impose fines on American citizens for not purchasing expensive health insurance, though wants to provide free health insurance to illegal aliens ... whom he refers to as “undocumented citizens” in true liberal double talk fashion.

The truth is, left solely in his hands, he would destroy NYC in months, not years. His policies would cripple NYC’s economy overnight, and convert Manhattan into East St Louis, or worse. And if his policy agenda isn’t frightening enough, his personality surely is, as he is the epitome of an ego maniacal authoritarian who is 100% convinced that he’s so much smarter than everyone else, and is completely dismissive of any opinion other than his own on EVERY SUBJECT.

Think you can have a rational and reasoned debate with clowns like him? Not a chance. When Hannity logically informed him that those “Building Owners” would not foot the bill for his mandates, but would instead pass those high costs on to tenants .... his only retort was “so, you don’t believe in climate change, huh? .... You don’t think we should save the planet from the impending disaster that is heading our way? What’s your idea for how we can save the planet from disaster, Sean?” (The classic “when did you stop beating your wife” question)

I am personally unable to explain how this clown ever got elected to any public office, let alone manage to dress himself in the morning, or brush his teeth. People who can analyze what this guy proposes and still remain a democrat voter do not need to register to vote, they need immediate, intense psychiatric care.

We humans who still possess the ability to think rationally cannot help but recognize that we seem to be living in a real world version of the “Twilight Zone”, where stone cold crazy is the new normal.

People seem to forget that Mayor de Blasio has been elected by new Yorkers twice. New Yorkers want bill's policies or they wouldn't have reelected him in 2017 with 67% of the vote. Their city; their choice.

Through their policies, democrats show you just how little being a citizen means to them. They regularly show their disdain for American citizens and yet people continue to vote for them. Go figure.

Why does ANYONE “need” taxpayer funded housing?

It's not my responsibility to house other people.

You leftists sure like to spend other people's money.

If they are providing those things, than what exactly do you think they should provide that will prove their status? A birth certificate is far easier to forge than a SS#.

Because we are a society. The purpose of society includes providing a social safety net. I am sure you would rather the disabled, children without parents, people who canít work due to illness, etc. die starving in the street, but that isnít how a society works.

First, the illegals taking benefits intended for Americans aren't FORGING SS numbers. They're stealing them.

Second, my birth certificate has a raised seal. That would take a lot of effort to forge, I'd imagine.

Third, what about proof of NY residency since childhood (like school records from PS-whatever) and an English proficiency test? That would at least eliminate illegals who are here less than ten years and/or those who refuse to learn the common language.

Also, priority should be given to those who fought in our wars. Top priority to anyone wounded and WWII vets.
