Immigration Terrorism

Liberal Alternative to Immigration Control in NYC: Police State

Written by Joe Scudder

Keep in mind that New York City already spends a lot of money on a powerful police presence to deal with crime. So, this new expense is significant.

Similar patrols are expected next year at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field and other summer or outdoor venues.
