Maybe if the protestors get some free time, they can come to the east end of Bennington Ave in Freeport as well as Sunrise Hwy between the Freeport LIRR station and Home Depot!!!

On a warm day, we are talking about HUNDREDS of day laborers, some legal immigrants, but mostly illegal immigrants and gang-bangers (MS-13, SWP, etc.)

Something needs to be done about this!!! The Village of Freeport is giving them free coffee and donuts while they wait to go to TAX-FREE EMPLOYMENT!!!

I am NOT anti-immigrant!!! My great-grandparents were immigrants and they came through Ellis Island and followed the proper procedures to become legal!

They did not "jump the line" by saying "Well, I'm already here, so why don"t you automatically make me and my 5 million friends legal?"

We need some protestors here to tell the local government "Enough is enough!!! You are using OUR taxes to pay for the medical expenses and education for the children of these ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, while being told "Sorry, but we have to cut the funding on these programs because we don't have the funds for them!!!"

Me thinking, maybe instead of looking for work I should start stealing,killing,and committing all kinds of crimes.Maybe that way we will justify all the hate to one ethnic group that really looks like your great grand parents when they first came to the great America.We should stop blaming them for our sky high school taxes, it is not because of them but because of the people who are in charge of the school districts,bunch of thieves, open your eyes.By the way I tried to sponsor one of my workers,for a working permit and the process was just impossible.So, no there is no legal way for them to even get a working permit.It's all bull.

Demand a zero tolerance towards ALL illegal immigration. Vote out any politician advocating any form of amnesty. It's time to enforce our immigration laws. Thank you ICE for stepping up enforcement raids.

So much of the enabling of illegal immigration is done at the local level. For example, lazy, complacent, self-serving and weak kneed city council members across the nation believe that their job is to improve roads, deal with park matters, worry about business signs, etc. yes, this is true to a degree as it was in the fifties for example, but today the issues are far more serious with illegal immigration. Those city council members with their heads in the sand, or who are simply so intransigent as to believe they can ignore the citizenry--SHOULD RESIGN OR BE FORCED TO RESIGN. THEY ARE LESS THAN USELESS TO THEIR CITY.

Remove all illegal aliens from the United States, especially the criminal graffitti, I.D. theft, and document fraud types from the United States. They have no business being in this blessed nation. They are pure SCUM.

Bobby and Stephen have it exactly right! I can only add that "attrition thru enforcement" is working in GA, SC, OK, AZ, MO and even in liberal CO--the 6 toughest states on illegals and their lawbreaking employers. SC is the newest state to join, with Gov. Sanford signing the country's toughest anti-employer bill the other day. Bravo, SC! And "Bravo!" to those states about to get tough on illegals. RI, TN and MINN are starting to get tough, but that leaves many, many states to go.

Stop hiring companies(ie landscapers) to work for you that hire them. Out here in suffolk it's a tough issue. A lot of my neighbors have started buying lawn mowers and doing the job themselves, others are starting to question who they hire. One kid turned down a job that offered him a good salary because the owner employs illegal people. Maybe if we all follow these examples it'll eventually have an impact.

Eight states have passed legislation mandating E-Verify be used by all employers in the state: Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and South Carolina, and two more states, Utah, and Virginia, are allegedly debating it.

there is a way to become legal in this country, it is just not sneaking in here in the middle of the night and then standing on a street corner in Huntington so you can make some money to buy drugs for yourself and send the rest home to Mexico to support your fifteen children. I dont care if I sound racist. I am just sick and tired of these criminals (and they are criminals for JUST BEING HERE!!!!) crying and complaining that they need to be pardoned for their crime of being an ILLEGAL alien and given a break. Yeah, while we are at it, why don't all the people who have murdered someone in their lives and gotten away with it just come on out of the woodwork and we will pardon you too. After all, what difference does it make what crime you commit, this is the land of the free to commit crimes right??????? NOT.

Stop feeding the birds and the birds will fly home. These hiring centers are nothing more than bird feeder stations. When the birds fly home so will all their associated problems.

It is a federal crime to aid and abet an illegal alien. It is a federal crim to hire or assit in hiring an illegal aliens. All the employers and the town officals in Huntington should be prosecuted, fined and jailed.

Most presidential issues dwarf in contrast to the expenditure of illegal immigration? You wouldn't think so, when you listen to the complicity of the pro-illegal immigrant organism. The amount of money that taxpayers are expected to pay, for the hires of parasite businesses is just astronomical. If our government was just extending a helping hand, to our own legal population, who in their time of need could rely on the safety-net.

However the welfare state has become a cash-cow for anybody who manages to slip past the border patrol, ignore their visa overstay or even leave a ocean going vessel without permission. Without papers they are illegal and should be deported. Today! More than ever, we need the pending Federal SAVE ACT(H.R.4088) because a new AMNESTY will be signed into law, with the next president. Then millions more will come and nothing on earth will stop the new deluge of poor. Details at NUMBERSUSA. Tell you Democratic representative to co-author this bill.

Illegal aliens should not be in our country. They work for cash and do not pay payroll taxes YET use our public property at day labor sites. If you are in the country illegally, go home!

I am happy to see that many states are taking the initiative dealing with illegal immigration since the federal government continues to look the other way. We as American citizens need to support our local city, county and state officials who are willing to effectively dealing with this enormous problem. Employers must be severly punished for hiring illegals and the freebies (education, healthcare, welfare, etc.)stopped. If these programs are eliminated for them, the illegals will not want to come here. We also need to throw out of office all the politicians who refuse to enforce our immigration laws. NO AMNESTY!!
