NY demorats gave $27 million to children of illegal aliens who receive preferen$e over children of US military

That’s not a typo in my headline. NY demorats give $27 million taxpayer dollars to children of illegal aliens. Children of US military? They get $2.7 million allocated to their education.

As reported by the NY Post: Democrats set aside $27 million in tuition assistance for the children of undocumented immigrants in the new state budget — but wouldn’t add hundreds of thousands of dollars to expand a similar program for kids of deceased and disabled veterans.

A bill that has twice passed the state Senate — but never made it through the Assembly — would have added funding to a program that provides free tuition, room and board at any SUNY or CUNY college to children, spouses and financial dependents of “fallen soldiers” who died, became severely disabled or were classified as missing in action while serving in the military after 1990.

Such a program already exists and serves 145 students at a cost of $2.7 million — but only for relatives and dependents of vets who served in combat zones. The Assembly Higher Education Committee voted 15-11 against allocating more funds to the program as part of the state budget.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick (D-Manhattan), who chairs the committee, said budget constraints weighed against the program expansion, which she estimated would have cost several hundred thousand dollars.

“We will make every effort to ensure going forward, we have some additional resources allocated to the program so that as an entitlement, it is not falling short of the needs of our military families,” she said.

But State Sen. Robert Ortt (R-Niagara), a sponsor of the measure, said the Assembly’s failure to act sends a distressing signal to military families.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said Ortt. “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 solider, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

Glick called the criticism a “cheap shot” on Twitter. “The bill-though laudable-had a budgetary impact which the committee routinely doesn’t consider post-budget. We did promise to see funding in the future [that] considers potential additional eligible individuals. Cheap shot,” she wrote.

Assemblywoman Judy Griffin (D-L.I), one of four Assembly Democrats who voted in favor of the bill, said it should be a priority next year.

“I voted for the bill because I think it’s important, especially after that FDNY firefighter was killed in Afghanistan, so heartbreaking. But I voted yes knowing the bill would be held because it was a tough budget year and as the chairwoman said, there just wasn’t the funding in the budget. But now we know for next year, [so] we will make it a priority and hopefully pass it.”

In what year did this occur? The only date I see in the article is in the caption to the photo of Assemblywoman Glick. The photo is from 2013.

Not the least bit surprising, the only shock is that they didn’t give more, Thanks for posting this, I’m taking it to my site. Great Job, J.C.

I bet the NY taxpayers are glad to be footing that bill. Imagine the conversation at home:

“Sorry Janie but your mother and I can’t afford to send you to college because both our service jobs at the fast food restaurant makes it so we can barely pay the property taxes, food bills and car/heahth insurance payments as it is, but if you were an illegal immigrant the state would pay for you to go!”

Maybe they should teach classes on how to impersonate an illegal immigrant, show you how to write off expenses like bronzer and instant tan spray.

Or just say that you identify as an iilegal. It’s what you feel, what you believe. Then transition (with tan spray, etc.) to a “trans-national”. Suddenly you’d have rights and funding flying in the windows

Ha, ha, good one! “Yes, I identify as a black, crippled women with leprosy. What can you do for me?”.

How about, “I identify as a cat with mange, hair ball dysfunction and bladder incontinence. I want an “owner” that will adopt me, let me lick myself clean and I want paid for being like this”. Wonder what code that would be for welfare services?

Oh William…you have over-thought this. Why would you need a tan spray to claim identity as “feeling like you identify as an illegal,” when you don’t require any biological parts to claim “feeling like a male or female” despite contrary biological/DNA evidence? Just show up and claim that you are an illegal. How much you wanna bet some gooberment pea-counter will dutifully check your box as claimed?

“Sorry honey, Jorge needs a root canal and a gender reassignment. Your teeth will just have to rot”. I remember when segregated water fountains were considered illegal. Now, if your a Demonrat or an illegal you go to the head of the class. If you aren’t, you go to the back of the bus.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,”

Right, shame. She’d have to look it up

This phenomenon has been around a long time. In the 1860’s Douglas Reed talks of a “missionary” who petitioned Abraham Lincoln to help the Jews in Palestine. Lincoln told him he was more worried about dying boys closer to home and threw him out of his office.

Thank you ever so much for this post, DCG. It’s people like demorat Glick who make me wonder why spent four years of active duty protecting their sorry asses. Today, the men and women who put their lives on the line for such people at least get a “welcome home” when they come back from whatever sand box country they’ve served in. My generation didn’t even get that. I was so pissed it took me 25 years before I cooled off long enough to hang my honorable discharge on the wall. I was beginning to think that there might be… Read more »

Andrew Cuomo is prepaying for votes. That piece of shit should be in a Federal Prison looking through bars for the rest of his life.

Re-read this and it fries my ass. The ONLY thing demonoids are good at is buying blocs of dependent voters with our money. In this case illegals, criminals by definition. Veterans…pfft. It’s not our problem that you didn’t put money away to educate your brats, you should have thought of that when you enlisted. Now pay up so we can take care of our little friends here. These creatures are wastes of human skin. Beneath even beneath contempt. More like unutterable loathing

Come on, tell us how you really feel! What you just described is how I feel every time I say “they don’t work for us”. I mean that from the depth of my soul. It’s like, “who are you people and what have you done with the ones we elected?”. In my life I have seen occasional examples of how respectful they become when they’re terrified. That’s what needs to happen now. They should be chased through the streets by pitchfork-wielding citizens carrying buckets of hot tar and bags of chicken feathers. As long as they know they can draw… Read more »

Just noticed the rainbow flag on Glicks desk. First openly “gay” assemblywoman. Sponsored legislation to assist veterans but only LGBT vets. Sponsored legislation to criminalize “gay” conversion therapy. Sponsored bill to protect “transgender expression’ whatever the hell that is. Represents Greenwich Village and East Village. Uh-huh. Imagine my shock

Ever since they began I’ve been saying “what is it you want from us?”. I don’t think they “have a right” to sin. That said, if it isn’t “illegal”, I guess they didn’t break any laws so, so what? But that isn’t it. They want some “special right” to do unnatural things to each other. Frankly, they don’t need my permission. I’m not impressed. What it really is about is an attempt to further marginalize Christianity. They want to make it “illegal” to say anything negative about what they do. That’s absurd. The “cure” for this is to openly say… Read more »
