This will make your mad and wonder when are we ever going to get a fair
shake from the idiots in Washington? Got the following from a fellow senior who
is also upset by this.
He received this from a friend who teaches at a college.
THIS IS A MUST READ.... WAKE UP
This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens and who
get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back required)
plus other federal grants to go to school? One student from
the Dominican Republic told me that she didn't want me to find a job
for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing
from our housing department and she was getting PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money left over.
She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas
to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program for
immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while
they go to school or training The one student I just mentioned told
me she was not going to be a US citizen because she plans to return to
the Dominican Republic someday and that she "loves HER country." I
asked her if she felt guilty taking what the US is giving her and then
not even bothering to be come a citizen and she told me that it doesn't
bother her, because that is what the money is there for!
I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you ARE a
US citizen, you don't qualify for their program. And all the while, I
am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week,
and everyone in my family works and pays for our education.
Something is wrong here. Right?
I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in
Spanish - enough is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian,
Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of
immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung
word for word the way it was written The news broadcasts even gave the
translation -- not even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this
is MY COUNTRY - IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- please pass this
I am not against immigration -- just come through like everyone else.
Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your
taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other
immigrants have in the past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
It is Time for America to Speak up
