Just saying that if this person is not here legally according to DeBlasio this is not a serious enough offense for the NYPD to contact the feds if he is ever caught. Also welfare fund is also allowed as not being serious enough. Got to love our mayor and he will get a second term as no one is opposing him.


1st of all, Asia is huge and made up of many countries with many looks and cultures. It is not just China and Japan. 2nd, the guy looks nice! Seriously? You think you can tell who is a pervert by looking at them?
