NY Democrats vote for illegal aliens, against Gold Star families

The Syracuse Post-Standard reported, "New York lawmakers on Tuesday refused to advance a bill that would have provided free college tuition to the families of all military personnel from the state who were killed in the line of duty."

Instead, Democrats -- who control the legislature -- approved $27 million for free college tuition for illegal aliens.



However Democrats pointed out they gave some money to the survivors of soldiers killed in the line of duty.

The Post-Standard reported, "The $175 billion state budget passed last week included almost $2.7 million to provide MERIT scholarships for 145 students who are the children, spouses or dependents of New York military members who were killed or disabled in combat zones, said Mike Whyland, speaking for Assembly Democrats."

That is one-tenth the money illegal aliens get.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, said, "The bill in question sought to extend this program to cover any service members killed or seriously disabled in any mishap while on duty."

Mishap.

Remember when Doofus Obama called the soldiers killed by a Muslim officer in a terrorist attack at Fort Hood work-place related?

A Gold Star is a Gold Star is a Gold Star.

It does not matter how the soldier died.

The only Gold Star parents the Democrats cared about was an immigration lawyer who used his son's combat death to berate Donald John Trump at the Democrat Convention in 2016.

State Senator Robert Ortt, R-Niagara, told Fox News, "Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself. We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally…

"Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money."

Follow the money, as they say.

  1. And they have the audacity to call us deplorable. Those soldiers went into combat because 3,000 New Yorkers perished at the hands of aliens. Talk about ingratitude.

  2. Give 'em a break. They need the cheap labor to help them dispose of all the murdered babies.

  3. Screw the NY Democrats. Who needs ‘em?

    Organize a whip-round among private citizens at needful times.

    What better way of telling America-hating Leftists where to head in.

  4. The Democrats continue to show their true selves. At some point, at least 51% of the voters (and overcoming the voter fraud of the democrats) are going to wake up and realize the truth and return sanity to public office.

    On a side note, the state budget works out to almost $9,000 per person. Or for a family of four, $36,000!!! Runaway government spending will destroy these liberal states.
