There’s something rotten going on in the Big Apple, however that foul stench this time isn’t coming from the city, but from Democratic legislators in upstate New York, more precisely from the New York State Assembly located at the State Capital in Albany where progressive legislators reside.
On Tuesday the usual odor associated with New York’s progressive policies took a deceive turn for the worst, when Democrats within the lower house willfully blocked a bill that proposed expanding college tuition aid for children of deceased and disabled military veterans after approving legislation for 27 million dollars in free college tuition for ILLEGAL ALIENS, just a week before.
The stunning and disgraceful exhibition by Democratic legislators in denying Gold Star families, those silent patriots, who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice of losing a loved-one on behalf of America, denying them the same consideration afforded to illegal immigrants, spells volumes from those progressive lawmakers who’ve abandoned common human decency, along with the rule of law, in favor of illegal aliens and lawlessness.
According to Newsweek, Deborah Glick a Democratic legislator and committee chairperson from Manhattan, along with Speaker Carl Heastie announced that the $27 million from the state’s budget would go towards supporting the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act, which allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state aid, all of which is paid for by taxpayer dollars.
The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee’s vote of 15 to 11 on Tuesday, blocking the bill allowing Gold Star family’s parity with illegal aliens is tantamount to rubbing salt on an open wound for those families, perhaps wondering what has happened to the America they love.
