Thread: Now tell me they don't have it better than citizens

  1. #1
    * Letter by a Florida teacher ................ A teacher speaks:

    This is a subject close to my heart. Do you
    know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are not
    US citizens and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay
    back 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 leftover.



    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 US 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 US 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 US 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
    they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough.
    Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or
    any other language because of immigration. 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.Sorry if
    this offends anyone but this is MY COUNTRY.

    IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- please pass this along.
    I am not against immigration -- just 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 America to Speak up If you agree -- pass this
    along, if you don't agree --- delete it

    Thanks Sprint for the website. Someone sent that to me.

    But there must be some truth because I got a survey from Judical Watch an organization based out of D.C. and they had very interesting questions on it.

    I ask my daughter to scan at work and share with the forum. I still haven't gotten all the answers to the questions from my legislators.

    But I stand correct based on this web site until I do further research.

    You are missing the point. Immigrants are stealing and taking advantage of Americans. Thats the point.

    If you are an honest permanent resident? Obtaining this gift through proper procedures? Then many posts do not Apply to you!!!

    RH, was off slightly, do to the grapevine of variation and understanding of the article.

    The point: many Flaws within immigration miss or Ignore those of fraudulent Intent! Many immigrants follow honest procedure without fraud. yet many others take advantage of the Loopholes!!!

    To speak anything other than riddles, would be providing answers and therefore contributing to the Undesirables!!!
    USC and Legal, Honest Immigrant Alike Must Fight Against Those That Deceive and Disrupt A Place Of Desirability! All Are Victims of Fraud, Both USC and Honest Immigrant Alike! The bad can and does make it more difficult for the good! Be careful who y

    The article is circulated to try to stir up awareness. It does not really lie about any of the matters. snopes.com did not do a very good job on this, and tried to push their own bias opinion/spin on it.

    The article never mentions illegals/undocumented, nor does it imply such as snopes attempts to distort. Snopes did not even try to find the real truth on "WAIT" and erroneously used a teen program to try to infer their view as this was made up.

    The article is just trying to bring awareness to us citizens about programs that are out there that their tax dollars are being spent on that they may or may not know about.
