In New York, We Know about Immigrants
The above came from a post a few days ago. In case you were wondering if it was badly timed owing to the recent idiot bomb in Times Square, I thought I'd mention that the person who first noticed the bomb and sought help is an immigrant:
I won't more than mention that Faisal Shahzad, the main suspect, is the sort of allegedly-skilled immigrant that advocates of partly-open borders say we should want whereas Aliou Niasse, the whistle-blower, is an unskilled immigrant that we're not supposed to want (until we hire them off the books, of course).
Aliou Niasse, a street vendor selling framed photographs of New York, said that he was the first to spot the car containing the bomb, which pulled up right in front of his cart on the corner of 45th street and Broadway next to the Marriott hotel.
“I didn’t see the car pull up or notice the driver because I was busy with customers. But when I looked up I saw that smoke appeared to be coming from the car. This would have been around 6.30pm.
“I thought I should call 911, but my English is not very good and I had no credit left on my phone, so I walked over to Lance, who has the T-shirt stall next to mine, and told him. He said we shouldn’t call 911. Immediately he alerted a police officer near by,” said Mr Niasse, who is originally from Senegal and who has been a vendor in Times Square for about eight years.
