Not only are Democrats in the ultra-liberal stronghold of New York at war with President Trump but they are at war with all of decent America as well.
The home of Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, Bill de Blasio, Andrew Cuomo and legions of other extremists continues to compete with California as the state most hostile to Trump and the traditional values that have made this country great.
In the latest outrage from the Empire State, vindictive Democrats in the state assembly gleefully torpedoed a bill that would have provided tuition aid for Gold Star families despite the great sacrifices made by the nation’s military members and veterans.
Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the same Democrats gave FREE college tuition to illegal immigrants and then boasted about it!
Democrats in the New York state Assembly recently voted down a bill that would have allowed hundreds of thousands of dollars in college tuition aid to family members of Gold Star families after passing a measure earlier last week to give $27 million in the same benefits to illegal immigrants.
“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,” said State Sen. Robert Ortt, a Republican from Niagara, on Thursday.
The bill proposed would have expanded a program that currently serves 145 students, who are relatives or dependents of military members served in combat zones. The bill would have expanded the program by allocating more funds for those military families that qualify.
New York’s Republican party was quick to bring attention to this gross miscarriage of decency visited upon the children of heroes to score cheap political points by siding with the illegals.
The irony shouldn’t be lost that the children of the veterans who bravely went to Iraq, Afghanistan and other foreign countries to keep Americans safe from the bastards who brought down the original World Trade Center were just screwed over by Cuomo’s buddies in the state government.
