..Wealthy Long Island residents upset over influx of immigrant labourers
UK Daily Mail ^ | July 4, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 07/04/2012 6:07:54 AM PDT by C19fan

The small town of East Hampton has gained a reputation as the playground for New York’s well-heeled elite, a place to spend the idle summer months in their million-dollar homes. But some of its wealthy residents are upset at an influx of less well-heeled workers who they say are lowering the quality of life and diminishing the appearance of the quaint Long Island town. A campaign group is focusing on the Springs area of East Hampton, dubbing itself 'Unoccupy Springs' and calling for an end to multiple families of low-wage workers living under one roof.

East Hampton...that’s “trust funded Marxists” territory,isn’t it? This story must be one huge misprint.

The rich folks are upset because they unexpectedly have to assume the tax burden for their own cheap labor.

And some people wonder why there are conservatives who are unmoved by the complaint that half of Americans are paying no federal income tax. There are other burdens that usually fall disproportionately on American workers of more modest incomes as the people on Long Island are now finding out.

Summer time, all those estates needing full time landscaping and grooming. Bring in the undocumented, pay them peanuts. Its unfortunate that with rents in the summer being sky high they have to cram in houses 3rd world style.

Yeah check with me when I give a damn.

Bastion would be an understatement. The Hamptons are where the limousine liberal elite of Manhattan gather during the summers.

Don't you understand? The laborers are supposed to live in the city and commute. /s

I was out on a boat from Montauk nearly 15 years ago, and illegals had already stolen the jobs on the boats that Americans used to do. I couldn’t understand at the time where they lived; it is hours east of NYC. I also couldn’t understand how the uppity yankees tolerated them.

Hey you!! Thanks for the ping!

Years ago, I believe it was some time in the 90’s, Farmingville had an all out battle w/ the illegals. It wasn't the housing they were upset about.

These “cockroaches” were everywhere, standing in parking lots, blocking the entrances, harassing the ladies and young girls w/ sexual innuendos, etc.

I don't feel bad for the Hampton people. They are the ones hiring them. The illegal population has exploded here on Long Island.

I NEED OUT!!! =)

Yes. And unlike the "unwashed" little people who sit in 3 hour traffic on the LIE, they take their helicopters out east.

Obama and the justice department should definitely step in and tell these terrorist homeowners where to stick their concerns. Don’t these liberals understand that Obama needs Hispanic votes to win the election?

My heart bleeds! About time these insulated super-rich hoity=toity types learn what it is like in the real world.

They don’t want to have anything to do with the servant class outside of working hours. Why don’t they do their own work then?

Bet they all vote Democrat too. And then wonder why their pristine playground is “sullied” by the presence of illegals.

Like I said, my heart bleeds.

NOT!

As someone whose family has summered in East Hampton or Southampton for 34 years (virtually my whole life), perhaps I can provide some perspective. The “wealthy” citiots (city-idiots) in the Hamptons don’t notice or care about illegal aliens for the most part. At worst, they may get annoyed when the gardener our cleaning woman makes a dumb mistake or sanitary faux pas because they don’t speak English. If they are starting to get annoyed now, it is good news. However, the locals are the ones who have suffered. I remember locals complaining in 1995. Their schools are over-run and they are outcompeted for jobs. Springs is not a mansion area, for the most part. It was a middle class area, until the rich Democrats in East Hampton decided to allow larger homes to be built. The locals are being forced out of their towns by this and by property taxes, much of which now go to subsidize illegal aliens.

Yes, it was none other than the Kennedy brothers who spearheaded the 1965 Immigration Act in Congress, from which American society is still reeling. The idea at the time, and for decades thereafter, was that the leftist elite could be secure knowing that they would have little or no face-to-face interaction with the newcomers, other than perhaps when hiring them for household help, while at the same time could be comfortable knowing that the Democrats would get the lion's share of the new immigrants' political support. Apparently, at least some of these limousine liberals have soured on Third World immigration. But whether or not this trend will create any movement in national political opinion on immigration remains to be seen.

BTW, it sounds a little strange that it took a Brit media outlet to do a story like this - maybe because it would be a politically incorrect taboo for the "mainstream" US media to tackle the subject.

While the group insists that race, religion, and creed do not factor in, most of the residents are from ethnic minorities - many of them immigrants - and find employment servicing the area’s luxury properties.

What a bunch of liars. You know damn well it’s all about those factors plus “class” Carol Saxe Buda is lying and she knows it, so does everyone who hears her words.

(SNIX) So the liberal Dem Hamptonites are another voting group Obama nailed——squealing with delight over Obama’s ‘DREAM’ Ex/Order-—letting 800,000 more of them stay in the US—no question. Plus the Hamptonites are l.o.v.i.n.g it that they are going to be taxed to pay the bills for these squatters:

1. $11 Billion to $22 billion is spent on welfare to illegal aliens each year by state governments. Verify: http://www.fairus.org/site/PageServer?pagename=iic_immigrationissuecenters7fd8

2. $22 Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches for illegal aliens. Verify at: http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML

3. $2.5 Billion dollars a year is spent on Medicaid for illegal aliens. Verify at:
http://www.cis.org/articles/2004/fiscalexec.HTML

4. $12 Billion dollars a year is spent on primary & secondary education for children here illegally and [usually] cannot speak a word of English! Verify : http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt....0.HTML

5. $17 Billion dollars a year is spent for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.(or as Terry Anderson says: JACKPOT babies!)Verify http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML

6. $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. Verify:http://transcripts.cnn.com/
%20TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt.01.HTML

7. 30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Verify:
http://transcripts.CNN..com/TRANscriptS/0604/01/ldt...01.HTML

8. $90 Billion Dollars a year is spent on illegal aliens for Welfare & socialservices by the American taxpayers.Verify:
http://premium.cnn..com/TRANSCIPTS/0610/29/ldt.01..HTML

9. $200 Billion dollars a year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens. Verify:
http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRI

13. In 2006, illegals sent $45 BILLION in remittances to their countries of origin. Verify: http://www/..rense.com/general75/niht.htm

14. The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes committed by Illegal Immigrants In The United States. Verify : http: // www.drdsk.com/articleshtml

The total cost is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR WHICH WOULD BE ENOUGH TO STIMULATE THE ECONOMY FOR THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.
PLUS!

1. The Earned Income Credit...you know money people get back on their taxes that they NEVER paid into in the first place!llegal aliens, most of which pay zero in net taxes, enjoyed $24.2 billion from the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) last year. That’s more than the annual revenue from the selected oil tax deductions and corporate jet deductions combined!Verify:
http://www.redstate.com/dhorowitz3/2011/09/02/illegal-aliens-receive-4-2-billion-in-additional-child-tax-credits/

2. The cost of prosecuting and being SURE these illegal entrants have their rights protected!In 2009, the U.S. Justice Dept filed nearly 92,000 immigration-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaking trend accounted for more than half of all new federal prosecutions in the country, according to data maintained at Syracuse University.”

What’s so ironic is that since they’re so wealthy, they can afford the tax hit. Those of us with modest resources can’t. Being liberal must be so tough. Heh heh heh.

Yeah, welcome to my home town: Los Angeles, ca 1980!!

Pretty soon they’ll be outnumbering those limo-tards in that town and vote in their own — think it can’t happen? Come to California and find out if you want to know what YOUR city will look like in a few years...
