Reports A Corporate Hero In The War Against Christmas!

From: Connie

As a resident of
, I am outraged at the scurrilous
attack on our county executive

Steve Levy
by the

New York Times editorial
, which has now sunk
journalistic depths
lower than any tabloid.

In its editorial about the brutal
killing of Ecuador native Marcelo Lucero, the
Times indirectly accused

of being a primary cause behind the murder. [The High
Cost of Harsh Words
, Editorial, New York
, November 18, 2008]

And it charged Levy with: 

  • Going on

    Lou Dobbs Tonight
    —imagine the nerve!

  • Trying to deputize county police to make immigration
    arrests and ridding the county work force of
    employees without papers.
  • Seeking to drive day laborers from local streets,
    yet rigidly opposing efforts to create hiring sites.

Levy`s actions are completely legal
and within his Constitutional rights. Most of all, they
are sensible efforts to end the illegal alien problem
that has overwhelmed

Suffolk County

The editorial followed up on its
totally unprofessional news story concerning the
incident. [A
Killing in a Town Where Latinos Sense Hate,
Kirk Semple, New York Times,
November 14, 2008]

Since all of us in the patriotic
immigration reform movement support Levy`s efforts, the
Times implicates us, too.

In the many years that I have read the
Times, I cannot recall

a single story
it ever printed that centered on
capital crimes committed by illegal aliens, although
there have been hundreds.

Like everyone else, I deplore
Lucero`s murder and hope his killers are brought to
swift justice.

But I point the finger at the Times
and other like-minded newspapers that have refused to
budge one inch on their blind support of open borders.

Had it done its journalist duty to
report in a fair and balanced fashion, the Times
could have raised awareness as well as public resistance
to illegal immigration—and perhaps Lucero would be alive
and well today in
