The problem: Migrants complain about the American dream and the $20.8 million Floyd Bennett Field shelter.
Now illegal migrants are dictating to Adams where they want to stay (“Another busload of migrant families arrives at Floyd Bennett Field in New York,” November 13).
Two buses were turned around from Floyd Bennett Field and returned to the Roosevelt Hotel because migrants didn’t like the place.
In doing so, they receive free food, healthcare and not to mention education. There’s an old saying: Beggars can’t be choosers.
Apparently that means nothing in this disoriented mayoral administration.
The fact that illegal migrants are now refusing the accommodation provided to them only exposes the hypocrisy. They demand things to which they are not entitled.
To the detriment of their citizens, major cities are crushed under the weight of the financial burden caused by illegal immigrants.
All of this human suffering is happening because President Biden and the Democrats are using these people as political pawns and collateral damage to gain lasting political power. It’s despicable.
Michael Castejon is completely wrong when he explains why he left Chicago for his home country (“Fed up with migrants who have walked thousands of miles to the US and are already on their way home: ‘The American Dream doesn’t exist'”) , 14th November).
The American dream exists, it is only being corrupted by the people who allow Castejon and his family to enter our country illegally. Thanks to the Democrats, the American dream has been distorted into a misguided utopia in which everyone is equal, no matter how little they contribute.
For them, America is a place of entitlement where everyone gets free things thanks to their government as long as the Democrats remain in power.
Could you ever imagine, even if you were poor and oppressed, entering another country illegally and then immediately making demands about where you wanted to live and where you didn’t, among other things?
This outrageous sense of entitlement seems to kick in the moment they cross our border.
We taxpayers are forced to finance and support our own invasion.
The problem: A New York subway vigilante opens fire on a menacing homeless tramp.
“The Story of the Subway Savior” (November 10) provided readers with a valuable lesson about how to protect themselves if threatened by a homeless would-be robber on the subway: Pray that If there is a person nearby who is suffering from the subway, do what you need to stop the robber from harming you.
The woman who was threatened by the suspected robber said she was afraid of both the robber and the vigilante’s gun.
She said she wished he had tried to help without firing a gun at the station.
This woman’s attitude is spot on. It will signal to anyone willing to help others that they should not do anything to help someone in need.
If you do help, make sure you can afford a deposit.
There are consequences when criminals are allowed to commit crimes with impunity.
On Tuesday, the consequence came in the form of a vigilante who protected a victim, but whose shots in a crowded subway could have killed or maimed innocent people.
Such consequences could be avoided if Democrats in the state legislature would abolish the no-bail policy and raise the age “reforms” so that criminal behavior could be deterred in the first place.
