Woodside residents fed up with day laborers

To Queens Crapper:

We here in Woodside are having a really terrible time trying to oust St. John's Bread & Life program from handing out free food to day workers (non-residents) for hours in front of our kids' playground. Needless to say, they invade the playground & bathrooms; the good-for-nothing attendant does nothing. She's even been seen on the free food line with the derelicts. This is a disgrace for a decently paid city employee! The nun who manages the mobile soup kitchen (Sister Kathy Byrnes) refuses to move her location even a few blocks away from the playground so as to spare the children this creepy intrusion. We might as well take the kids to the Bowery Mission for their play dates. The St. John's program is run by a bunch of sanctimonious, smug assholes. They never consulted with Woodside residents about coming here and they don't give a crap about our children! Their intrusion into our neighborhood is unwanted and unneeded. None of the residents ever take food from them. The 108 precinct will remove these men if we bombard them with calls but will not station an officer at the playground. Not even a rookie or an auxiliary cop. The community board is completely weak and feckless when comes to this matter as they are in all things concerning Woodside. This "charity" has ruined the quality of life here by attracting hundreds of these guys. By their own count, they feed 350 men on a Tuesday morning (9:30 to 11:30). HELP!!! Fellow residents, please call TONY BUTLER at St. John's program at (718)574-0058 ext.118 and tell him this is an unwelcome intrusion into our neighborhood!

Derelicts? Gee they look like they are dressed for work to me. I see these guys hanging around ALL the home improvement stores, even here in Manhattan. They aren't there to pick their noses, they are looking for work.

All of this problem would go away if all you "Great Americans" would stop hiring them for cheap labor in your shitty houses and garages.

Hire Americans..Pay them well..or shut up about it.

No, all of this problem at the park, which is the subject of the post, would go away if the stupid food truck stopped coming there.

Thank your Democratic politicians.

What do you expect? The Church is losing followers, so it's handing out food to illegals, to win new converts.

Look at their WEB Site, they refer to the illegals that they feed as "guests"

Who had the bright idea to park the truck there to begin with?

Remember Hart's Park was the location chosen by politicians during the blackout of 2006 to feed locals, distribute ice and water. Not many locals even knew about it. but the dam illegal aliens were being feed three times a day and given snacks. what the f@@@?

It took me much work to get the location of the emergency food. but they, the day laborers, knew about it already.

why wasn't it on Roosevelt Avenue? I didn't have electricity for many days, but people who did have it were getting free food.

There is some day laborer advocacy group that is working with this organization. get on their case please.

I find it disgusting that our tax dollars are supporting them. On top of it, their jack pot children get WIC, food stamps and welfare benefits. stop giving the handouts and they will leave.

You have Eric Gioia to thank for this nonsense. now he will be gone.

How are our tax dollars helping these people? The church is funded by private donations.

Who made your clothes? Who picked your fruits and vegetables? Most likely it was poor people of color. The writer is only mad now because s/he is confronted with the people who make his life cheap. I would like to see the people who make your clothes and food lined up across from your playground, too.

"None of the residents ever take food from them." Where do you think the people who take the food live? They don't stop being residents of our neighborhood just because we're xenophobic.

The church may be, but programs like this get funding from the city, state and maybe even the feds.

The hatred shown here to non-citizens is disgusting. Most of these people are not derelicts; they are looking for work. And what do you know about the city employee who is fed by the mission? Do you know how much she makes? Do you know how many people her income supports? Hunger comes in a variety of packages. People with jobs can be hungry. People who live in Woodside can be hungry.

They aren't non-citizens. They are illegal aliens. They came here without permission. They need to go.

Does anyone remember the two women a year or two ago who were killed by 2 of these poor souls "ready to work"? One of them was bludgeoned and hanging in her shower? Remember that poor soul?

Yeah, MOVE THE FUCKING TRUCK away from children.

To woman of a certain age:

lots of Americans are looking for work too. I would deliver pizza, landscape, etc, but they won't hire me, they hire the illegals. You are so wrong.
