I'm a resident, and yes, definitely- from the cities to the suburbs. Just like most counties how ever. Wouldn't look at it as something that would steer me away from living here however

Certain areas have more of a problem than others. City of Poughkeepsie, Beacon, and Village of Wappingers seems to have the biggest populations of them. Down in Fishkill, more and more are showing up-and unfortunately, they let the places the live end up looking like dumps. But over all, it's not as bad as southern counties. Depends on where you want to live here-they avoid living in more rural spots-seems they gravitate towards places with shopping center/bus lines.

Dutchess doesnt have an illegal problem, out of the lower Hudson Valley counties (Rockland, Orange, Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester. Id say Dutchess has the least besides Putnam, which only has close to 100,000 people.

No. But the hispanics here have been inconsiderate enough to bring that "support for English AND Spanish" thing over here. It's asinine! I hate their language as it is, but we have to support it on the walls of stores and in phone calls about information, I'm tired of it!!!

At last check, the City of Poughkeepsie hasn't reached 15% hispanic. I don't think they've even hit 10% pure yellow hispanics, maybe. Just over 10% at most. That's a "problem"? Beacon's hauling in almost twice as many as Poughkeepsie.

Not really Orange either if you exclude Newburgh 100%, outskirts and some of middletown, and any affected outskirts. Not many other areas in Orange County have a problem, it's just more spread out. Dutchess is over-populated and every town's squished at least near each other and is just minutes away on that rare hour that doesn't have mind-numbing traffic. Dutchess County is a complete and utter mess and shame of human-devloped traffic. A half waste of land too, but that's going too far. Dutchess County has enough land to build villages and towns, but the problem is money and the second problem is a takes people to get killed in Dutchess before they put up a bloody stop sign.

Dutchess County has a huge illegal immigrant problem. Not just the inner cities either. All rural communites are being affected. The actual count is unknown, since they lack documentation.
The larger problem is that they are allowed to drive unlicensed, uninsured, unregistered. Most of them use Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Ohio plates. RED HOOK has accidents weekly involving illegals. DWIs are common with them, however it does not mean they will be removed from the roads. Police fear discrimination suits and generally do not like to prosecute them, that and it is a federal issue and feds won't act. Police will simply avoid the red tape mess. Worse if they have accidents and DWIs, there is no way to track them, unlike citizens where it remains on their driving record. Very serious and dangerous situation especially in that they illegals usually never have eye exams.
Lets not forget the cost. Dutchess County Social Services has a policy that states, " Undocumented immigrants MUST be taken at their word" Therefore taxpayers are stuck footing the bill on behalf of the US born children of illegal immigrants.. We pay for their housing, food, healthcare, etc. While the male counterparts of household send their earnings to their home country while working at a job that used to belong to an American.
