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

The ONLY way to stop this is to complain to Congress until they hear us. It is DEPLORABLE that we are paying for illegals and bailing out mortgages of people who are not responsible. DAMN it, America. WAKE UP. Get off your lazy rear-ends and help STOP THIS. I write letters to congressmen almost every day. Feel like I am wearing out my fingers for nothing.

Don't mean to pee on anybodies rant (cause I agree in principle), but no where in the letter does it say that the non-citizens in school were illegal.

Illegal or not, we allow others access to these grants that are nearly impossible for a CITIZEN to get. Not to mention these people use it against us.....Mad

No argument from me,..... oh hell why not. Cy just reading the letter it looked like the grants were directed at immagrents. Possibly to ease their assemilation into this nation, or to better their education when they return to their own country. This would be a good thing for legal immagrents in general. However if our government is running it they are ruining it.Loco
