The xenophobe follies continue

(cross post from HatCityBLOG)

He's at it again.
A group advocating stricter immigration rules asked federal officials this week to conduct a criminal investigation of the city of Danbury and its residents for housing and employment policies that it believes promote illegal immigration and violate federal immigration laws.

The same group, the CT Citizens for Immigration Control (CTCIC), filed a complaint in 2005 with the U.S. attorney's office against Stamford Mayor Dannel Malloy and Bill Callion, the city's director of public safety, for authorizing "no-hassle" zones for day laborers in the city. That complaint is still pending, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Connecticut.

The group sent its latest request to the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Internal Revenue Service and the state attorney general.

"The city of Danbury has become one large illegal smuggling, employment and housing operation," Paul Streitz, founder and co-director of the group, said in a statement. "This is racketeering. It is coordinating various operations with one intent: to displace resident citizens with illegals."
Good grief...watching Steitz and his goonsquad in the CTCIC is like watching a Three Stooges movie.

To illustrate my point, watch this videoclip from the immigration forum when members of the CTCIC pulled their usual comical nonsense and Streitz made his "announcement" about his complaint against Mayor Boughton (make sure to keep an eye on the audience while these xenophobes waste everyone's time with their babbling).

Okay, lets recap:

This is the same Paul Streitz and CTCIC that do nothing but hold idiotic publicity stunts which a MAJORITY of people in Danbury and Connecticut simply ignore and/or ridicule.
The list can go on and on but there I don't want to waste the entire blog post on this nonsense. If you want more information on the xenophobic morons in the CTCIC, the Danbury IMC did a great in-depth story on the group and it's worth a read.
