This is exactly what is wrong with our country!    AMERICA FIRST ! ! ! !


LETTER FROM 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

About Jim G.

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)

    If the letter is not part of some fake news then someone should find a way to have it go viral. Yes it may not reflect all the immigrants that are here but even if only a small percentage means it is drawing funds away from American citizens in need. I have a daughter that works 60 hours every week and is still not making enough money to pay for a apartment with running water or indoor plumbing let alone afford to go back to school… there is definitely something wrong with our governments priorities.
