WPMT (PA) ^ | May 2, 2012 | Paul Smith

YORK TOWNSHIP— The driver of a Strathmeyer Forests Inc., van and possibly others riding in the van that struck a car at the intersection of Cape Horn Road and Starlight Drive this morning and fled the scene on foot, according to responders. It happened just before 8am. The female driver of the car was taken to York Hospital after being extricated from her vehicle.

UPDATE: York Area Regional Police issued a release that a hit and run accident occurred on Cape Horn Road at Starlight Drive and 6 Hispanic males ran west from scene. Two have been apprehended, and police confirm that the two are illegal immigrants. Police are urging anyone with information to call 911. They say there is no threat to the community. They are looking for the driver of the van.

These CRIMINALS were employed by Strathmeyer Forests, Inc..

According to their website:
"A commitment to our community, and especially to its youth, is also a core value of The Strathmeyer Companies. Among the ways we strive to be responsible corporate citizens."

Maybe they should replace this wholesome corporate image on their website:


...with a more accurate image of their workforce:


After all, isn't that what "responsible corporate citizens" should do? FU Strathmeyer. I hope any FReepers in the York or Harrisburg, PA areas avoid using the services of this "75 year family business"/criminal enterprise.

Now now..let’s not jump to conclusions..perhaps there was a very good reason for them to make such haste from the wreckage..perhaps they forgot to register to vote..or collect unemployment..or get their own drivers license so that they could cause their own wrecks..We should not rush to judgment..

"...police confirm that the two are illegal immigrants."

Uh, oh... there's a couple of officers in trouble now for asking the immigration status of the perps.

True, but from the daily York Dispatch residents can learn from headlines that "Kim Kardashian wants divorce to move forward".

Starting to wonder if English is the first language of the person who wrote that opening sentence [fragment].

"Strathmeyer doesn’t have a magical formula for success or even survival in this economic climate. “Advice is cheap and easy to come by. Follow what is in your heart, do what is your passion and listen to the guy upstairs. He never seems to make a bad call,” advises Strathmeyer.

Strathmeyer Landscape Development is a family business that provides an example to other companies who want to continue to provide beautiful landscapes." (LINK)

Who is the "guy upstairs" for Mr. Strathmeyer? Felipe Calderón?

Some of my best childhood memories are of shopping in and around York. But since about ‘99 I have driven twenty miles out of my way to bypass it. It’s a craphole on par with Baltimore, now.

“Strathmeyer Christmas trees—a fam-i-ly tradition” (that’s their November-December radio jingle) has been employing Mexicans for AT LEAST the last decade. Immigration status? Who knows?

No amount of spin can erase the injuries nor the terror that some of the local residents were feeling when the men bailed.

The female driver of the car was taken to York Hospital after being extricated from her vehicle.

Who cares if this lady had to be cut from her car and rushed to the hospital...As long as the greedy bastards running Strathmeyer Forests Inc., get their low wage illegal labor.

The driver of the passenger car, 22-year-old Lindsey Green of Red Lion, was taken to York Hospital by ambulance. Her condition was not available as of 3 p.m., a hospital spokeswoman said.

Green had to be extricated from her car by Yoe firefighters, Dunbar said, and underwent surgery at the hospital

Before she was t-boned by a van full of illegals:
"CONGRATULATIONS!!

“They say there is no threat to the community.”

Bet the woman sent to the hospital would disagree.

Lets give Pennsylvania to Mexico.

Sanctuary states seem to WANT to be part of Mexico. Other states are inundated due to proximity to Mexico and the feds placate the lawbreakers.

Texas charges two over immigrants

Snip: It follows the discovery of 115 people locked inside three small houses close to the border with Mexico.

The latest data available from 2009 show that in Texas 61 percent of households with children (under 18) headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) used at least one welfare program, compared to 42 percent for native households with children in the state.

The overall use rate for welfare by Texas immigrant households with children (61 percent), is one of the highest in the nation.

In Texas, immigrant households with children tend to use food assistance programs and Medicaid at much higher rates than native households with children. Use of cash and housing programs tends to be similar to natives.

The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that in Texas, 54 percent of households with children headed by legal immigrants used at least one welfare program, compared to 70 percent for illegal immigrant households with children. Illegal immigrants generally receive benefits on behalf of their U.S.-born children.

It's epidemic and we're paying to the nose for it.

3 agents shot, injured in SF Bay area incident

Snip: Three Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were shot and injured Thursday while serving "high-risk" warrants during an early morning sweep of San Francisco Bay area gang members, authorities said.

Individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States were paid $4.2 Billion in Refundable Credits

Snip: Although they are not authorized to work in the United States, ITIN filers are receiving billions of dollars in CTCs and ACTCs intended for working families.  

However, nearly 9,000 taxpayers claimed a total of $10,000 or more in ACTCs by filing multiple tax periods.

Funny. I think instead of blaming Strathmeyer’s and their family we should be blaming our media and local police because it was later determined that the person driving the car was actually an American citizen, and the illegals that were deemed illegal because they looked Mexican actually had all of their paperwork to support their ability to be working in the United States.

You just registered this morning to come on here and defend a company cited by several news reports as employing illegals? You do realize that:
1) The driver and all passengers fled the scene. Is that SOP for non-illegal alien Strathmeyer Forest employees?
2) Police confirmed that the 2 who were caught running from the scene were in fact illegal aliens. They were taken to an ICE detention facility.
3) Stratmeyer Forests refused to comment to the local papers, instead making a "press release" via twitter:
Fred Strathmeyer, owner of Strathmeyer Forests, could not be reached for comment Wednesday, but the company issued a press release later in the evening via Twitter:
"We had, and still have, no reason to believe that they are not allowed to work legally in the United States."
LINK. That's a little different than the employer stating with certainty that the occupants of their company van are legal, which they should be able to do with confidence if that was the case - wouldn't you agree?

Based on your response, and that fact that you registered today - I have to assume that you are involved with Strathmeyer Forests or the Strathmeyers, and you found this post while searching the web for reporting on your company. Having said all of this, if you have a link to documentation or an article backing up your claim that none of the 6 passengers who fled the scene were illegal aliens, please do post that link or point to the documentation - and I will ask the Admin Mod to remove this post. You might also want to contact the Chicago Tribune along with the 5 or 6 PA newspapers that are still running the story.

Thanks for the “update” on that story.

I heard about the incident but didn’t read the details on the employer involved.

I suspect there are other employers in York County in similar situations.

People linked to both political parties in York County have done some interesting things over the years with Hispanics in particular to get them registered as R’s or D’s.

Many of those are in this country legally, particularly Puerto Ricans who have been American citizens legally since 1917. As for the others, there may be some question marks there.

You bet and been that way a long time.

In fact, we all share the same corrupt socialist president, fedgov and a congress which betrays us on a routine basis.

We just have much better weather and great things to do in CA!
