Three Plattsburgh, New York, taxi cab companies will pay financial penalties for taking advantage of illegal immigrants fleeing the United States for Canada through practices including price gouging, the New York Attorney General’s office said on Wednesday.

“It’s no secret that we’ve seen intense fear in immigrant communities across New York in recent months. To take advantage of that fear for financial gain is simply unconscionable,” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in the statement.

“My office won’t hesitate to crack down on those seeking to take advantage of this climate of fear.”

As part of the settlement, the Plattsburgh companies will pay penalties ranging from $350 to $2,500.

Yep, the State Attorney General has issued a press release over finding someone $350.

I’m not entirely linked into the New York State election cycle so when is it Schneiderman either has to run for office or try to move up a step?

  1. So they charged too much to drive some illegals north of the border?

    I think someone is over paying those illegals. They are taking taxis now? The Underground Railway it ain’t.

  2. His Twitter feed looks like a very professionally managed operation. Potential Democratic candidate in 2020?

  3. Exactly, SMFS. The result will be taxi cab companies will no longer help the fleeing ‘immigrants’ (sic).
