STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Staten Island immigrants as a group were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and continue to suffer economic and emotional hardships.
But most, perhaps 60 percent, haven't applied to FEMA for help, with the fear of deportation a major factor. And even if they have filled out the paperwork, chances are they'll be denied, according to the advocacy group Make the Road New York.
Farmer Agustin Juarez of Port Richmond, a member of the group, expressed frustration that he suffered thousands of dollars in damage in the storm but isn't eligible for FEMA assistance because he's not a citizen.

They do not belong in this country at all, but no one has the balls to deport the bastards.
I’ve said it MANY times: put a $1000 bounty on EVERY Illegal found by U.S. Citizens (they collect the reward), and ship the criminal invaders back where they came from...we’d STILL be Billions ahead on handout expenditures, education expenditures, etc.
I, too, was looking for the missing word, ILLEGAL. Frankly, I will be just as happy if they don’t apply for any aid paid for by my tax dollars, and decide it will be a better idea to go home to the countries of their citizenship.
That’s one of the problems with being a criminal.
