Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: Immigration Help Is On The Way To New York—Maybe

In what some Albany analysts interpret as a signal that Governor David Paterson is about to resign, last week he pardoned Qing Ho Wu, a Chinese immigrant.

Wu, 29, had been held in federal custody since he admitted on his citizenship application that he committed a string of robberies over a decade ago. [Dave pardons ex-hood, By Fredric U. Dicker And Georgett Roberts, NY Post, March 7, 2010]

According to an anonymous state senior official about Paterson, "It smells like he`s clearing the decks." Typically, pardons of this nature are done on the way out the door.

Paterson has always had a soft spot in his heart for illegal immigrants as he proved two years ago when he falsely charged that an Ecuadorian alien murdered was a "hate crime" victim.

Castiglione, a Democrat, wrote previously about how illegal aliens become entrenched in government jobs. Read his letter here.
