I am the son of an immigrant, so please accept this article in the spirit in which it is intended. I respect immigrants and what so many have brought to our country. With a declining birth rate of 1.8, America needs immigration. However, we do not need immigration from people who believe that we owe them anything and everything.
Many of the immigrants who come here are happy to become Americans, work hard and embrace our culture and traditions. Disturbingly, there are immigrants who think their culture should be dominant and they expect we Americans should cater to their every whim. I grow weary of the newest class of immigrants, who unlike my father’s family, don’t to work and think that the American taxpayer is their own personal slot machine.
I mean this sincerely, if an immigrant is here to exploit our system, instead of contribute to our system, they need to go back home. We need to bring an end to all welfare that is given to non US citizens. My son is going to spend a fortune going to college. Why do immigrants wrongly think that I should pay for both my son and and an immigrant’s college tuition? I am tired of it and Trump needs to put an end to this exploitation of the American taxpayer.
A Florida teacher recently wrote a letter which encapsulate much of what I am saying here.
Americans Have a Right to be Furious
Here is a letter from an anonymous Florida Teacher about how the welfare state applies to immigrants but not to US citizens.
Subject: LETTER BY A FLORIDA TEACHER
LETTER BY A FLORIDA TEACHER
Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are NOT U.S. citizens and who get the PELL Grant, which is a federal grant (no payback 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 a 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 (check it out – I did) 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 U.S. 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 U.S. is giving her and then not even bothering to become 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 U.S. 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. I am sorry, but after hearing that they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish – enough is enough. That’s a real slap in the face. 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.
I don’t care whether this offends someone or not but this is MY COUNTRY. IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please pass this along. I am not against immigration — I just expect immigrants to 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!
PART OF THE PROBLEM – Think about this:
If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone-YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
It is Time for REAL America to speak up.If you agree — pass this along!
I could not agree more with this letter. To hell with political correctness, as it keep us from saying what needs to be said. It is time to end these programs that are sucking the resources out of this country. And all of these are from programs championed by a President who has never had a real job before entering politics, and does it ever show.
