O'Reilly discusses the case of Long Island's Steven Levy in Left Attacks Politician for Fighting Illegal Immigration and Shutting Down Slumlords:
...Rosalina Dias was charging the illegal aliens around $200 apiece to live in squalor [in her clownhouse in Farmingdale]. That means this vile woman was taking in about $12,000 a month for a house that cost her about $86,000. Dias was able to do this for more than 60 months.I wonder whether the Soros-funded Media Matters will discuss this column? Or, do they realize that if they do everyone will realize just whose side they're on?
The only reason Dias was shut down was because a politician named Steve Levy, the Suffolk County executive, demanded it. And what did Levy get for his trouble? Well, he was roundly criticized by The New York Times and Newsday, and viciously attacked by ideologues. One of them, Reverend Allan Ramirez, told Newsday Levy was guilty of "ethnic cleansing."
That was music to Newsday's ears. One of its headlines tipped the newspaper's hand: "Dozens of Men Now Left with Nowhere to Go."
How about going home to their respective countries and obeying the law, Newsday?
But The New York Times was even worse. In an editorial the paper stated: "Mr. Levy sang the law-enforcement tune ... bemoaning the dread danger posed by Latino flophouses and charging that TV stations and newspapers ... had been wrong to point out the problems with Mr. Levy's callous assault on slumlords."
