    Probably a drunk Illegal imigrant with no drivers license. Is N.Y. still a sanctuary city where you cannot ask someone’s legal status ? Go Arizona !

    1. Dale Auburn says:

      (1) You have no basis to determine that.

      (2) NYC has never been a “sanctuary city.”

      (3) The only parts of Long Island that are included in NYC are Brooklyn and Queens. Nassau County is outside NYC. But you already knew that.

        DALE; You show your ignorence when you write that nyc has no basis to determine his statement! We state that you can’t possably KNOW that, until such time as you engage him in a conversation and ask the questio:n ‘on what basis have you determined that?’ Then and only then, should you consider rendering an opinion, based on your conversation!!! We suggest you contact blomberg, and pose the question of sanctuary city to him. Ask the insiders for their opinion.
        Ask the cops about how they are told to act.You know nothing about the real NY city. You, like the other millions of ‘slugs’ (obama’s word, describing American workers) are on the OUTSIDE looking IN. Your third (3) point is irrelevant to the subject at hand.

  5. Dale Auburn says:

    Isn’t it ILLEGAL to be a pedestrian in Nassau County?

    1. Debbie says:
