That's right. You read it correctly.
Maybe homeowners should band together and stop paying school taxes until government plays fair.
A United Associated Press article stated, "The U.S. Department of Education sent a letter to districts around the country Friday, reminding them that all students - legal or not - are entitled to a public education."
It is unconscionable that Obama and the U.S. Department of Education refuse to enforce the U.S. immigration laws and permit the children of illegal immigrants to attend public schools being paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
Perhaps it is time for homeowners across the nation to stop paying their school property taxes until the Federal Government either changes its absurd policy or forking over the dollars to pay the education of the children of illegal immigrants.
Washington wants everything from states but provides nothing in return. Congress cannot provide jobs for every American citizen who wants to work. Our own children cannot afford a higher education degree. Yet our Congress continues to expect U.S. taxpayers to throw away their hard-earned dollars not only to pay for their own children's education, but also the education of the children of illegal immigrants.
Are we living in Bizarro World?
Folks, it not just the Mexican population. Although Mexicans are the largest number of illegal immigrants, there are many illegal immigrants from India, Africa, Cuba, European nations, the Middle East and from many other countries around the world.
In addition, for many decades Puerto Ricans have been afforded the same and even better rights and priviledges than American citizens have. They are considered legal here but they do NOT have to pay any U.S. taxes. They are permitted to live here, vote, send their children to public schools, etc. Every 10 years or so the people of Puerto Rico are asked to vote to become the 51st and it is voted down. Why not, since they get everything we citizens do without the taxes. This has been going on for as long as I can recall, perhaps 50 years.
US citizens are swiftly becoming second citizens of our nation and there seems little we can do about it.
You know, I also need to say that I personally wouldn't have such a problem with all this if our government would support American citizens better than it does. Obama and Congress continue to take away our rights, priviledges, jobs, etc., and they don't seem to give "a hill of beans" about the community good --- a.k.a., what is good for all Americans.
And a question for our "leaders"...
If the majority of Congress and the American people believe our immigration laws are out-dated and/or unfair... and if the laws are so difficult to enforce..., then why doesn't Congress modify, change and improve our immigration laws?
I know, as most of you know, the economic benefits for big business and wealthy individuals of having illegal immigrants in this nation; however, it is two-faced of our government to reap the benefits of illegal people being here and yet forcing American citizens to endure economic hardships because of it and in spite of it. It's NOT the U.S. that I knew growing up. Our leaders are oppressing U.S. citizens.
