    City Opens Street Vending to Illegal Immigrants

    BY DANIELA GERSON - Staff Reporter of the Sun
    July 12, 2005

    Reversing a policy that City Council members said dates back to the pushcarts of the 1930s, the city opened vending to illegal immigrants yesterday.

    Mayor Bloomberg signed into law a bill repealing the provisions of the food and general vendor laws requiring that officials check the citizenship status of license applicants.

    Has the entire region of New England gone completely insane? They're criminals currently in the process of committing a crime. This is like a law saying that you can't prevent a thief from selling his ill-gotten wares, even if he's currently stealing them.
