Newsday shutdown the other message board pertaining to this issue. Why Newsday? Too many people disagree with your support for illegals. You are the epitome of biased, liberal reporting !!

Newsday knows how to put pictures of mothers with beautiful children on the front page to make caring people feel guilt for opposing illegal immigration. This is a disgrace and a despicable use of children as pawns in national illegal immigration crisis. They use the term Diversity for illegal immigration. Newsday closed the board because too many people know this stupid and inane article on Huntington appears in a different form evey other week and readers are disgusted with nonsense.

This isn't about diversity, it's about aiding and abetting ILLEGAL ALIENS. This is a typical bleeding-heart piece that tries to avoid the issue and paint marshmellow clouds for the cowardly "We are the World" liberals that lack the spine to take a stand for the sovereignty of this nation. And the last bastion argument of every bleeding-heart liberal: "What about the children?"

To me, there are few things as cowardly and vile as hiding behind children. These are people that knowingly broke our laws, had children that they put at risk either because they couldn't afford them or, much worse, wanted to exploit their citizenship for personal gain, then try to hide behind the boo-hoo BS of "Oh, you're breaking up families" when they get caught. Nauseating.

I'm grateful not to see the typical rhetoric of "mean-spirited, haters, xenophobes" and their all time favorite "racist." Illegal aliens have shown a total contempt for our laws, our borders, and have little regard for this nation. They should not be coddled and rewarded for their contempt, they should be deported.

In every area of this country that has passed laws targeting illegals they are leaving. Some to other areas, some are leaving this country. We don't have to "round up" 12-20 million gate-crashers. We need to pull up the "Welcome" mat and many will leave on their own.

Day labor sites are a coward's way out for cry-baby politicians to appease and placate rather than taking a stand. It does nothing but make life easier for those that shouldn't be here and is a transparent attempt at sweeping the trash under the rug. Rather have them out of sight and out of mind than hanging out on the corners, trashing the area, defecating in bushes, and making lewd remarks and gestures to passing women.

When will this nation, a nation that still alows more legal immigration than the rest of the world, combined, ever get the spine to secure our borders and enforce our laws?

This paper is so blatant in their biased push for cheap labor, tax evasion and the eventual destruction of the USA. If they don't like what is said, they will delete the thread.

Even the headline "Huntington grapples with growing diversity" is a sham, the headline should read "Huntington taxpayers alarmed at illegal invasion". People pay a lot in taxes, they want their schools to be in our native language. Why should the taxpayers accept the school's slow change to Spanish? Wake up America, the country is being taken over right in front of your eyes. In about 50 years, Spanish will take over in America, and you will be pressing 2 for English.

I am so sick of these stories that lump illegal aliens and legal immigrants together. The media people do not give us credit for having the brains to distinguish between the two. That is why they are losing readership. They are dishonest as are the advocates for the illegal aliens.

There has never been anti immigrant sentiment throughout this whole debate. People are disgusted with illegal aliens standing on our street corners and would feel the same no matter what their ethnicity would be. The folks in NYC were disgusted with the drunks laying all about on the "Bowery" and the "squeegy men" coming up to their cars and spitting on the windows to clean them. Guiliani cleaned up that mess so why isn't this mess cleaned up as well. They also like to use the "anti-hispanic" mantra to force their issue but it just so happens the hispanic illegal aliens are the ones standing on our streets. In fact there is a group called "You Don't Speak for Me" which is made up of hispanic citizens who are fed up as well. You do not see illegal Russians, Chinese, etc. This is all a contrived movement that has a much deeper malevolent side to it. These advocates are using the illegal aliens who do stand on the streets to push their socialist/communist agenda. They are not learning our language and they are not assimilating. If they did, the advocates would have no tool for their movement.

The woman that takes credit for starting and running the day laborer center is in trouble with the tax man. The town of huntington took over the contract recently to keep it from being shut down at a cost to the taxpayers close to six figures per year. I found that info in a recent newsday online article that was pulled a few days after myself and other irate citizens expressed their outrage. Huntington town is aiding and abetting illegal immigrants which is against federal law with our tax money.There is a huge difference between legal and illegal immigration but there are folks out there who deliberately try to lump them together so they can cry the race card about those who are trying to correct this huge problem.

Liberals can't handle the truth. That's the problem. Newsday is no different from the Soviet Union, hide the truth.

Funny how they deleted all those posts. Probably because the were all anti-illegal immigration.

Newsday and illegals are some of the reasons why I'm voting Republican Conservative for the first time ever! If fact, I'm changing parties all together.

Thanks Newsday!

Newsday will probably do it again. They just already deleted all the posts about that illegal immigrant that plowed his SUV through that house in Brentwood.

Censorship at its best.

I wish Newsday would at least acknowledge the overwhelming opposition to the illegal immigrant presence on Long Island as a legitimate concern. You know what, I bet the Newsday editors and upper management people don't live in diverse communities! I bet their kids are enrolled in white school districts.
