Texas Steps Up And Cuts Funding To Immigrants
The Illegal Immigration controversy is ridiculous. Liberals are overlooking MS-13 and the many criminals that are prospering due to Obama’s negligence. How many Americans have to die at the hands of illegals for lawmakers to take action? On the National level, there is the Trump Wall and we currently have beefed up security. But it’s hard to protect the whole border, illegals sneak in. And that’s why Texas is moving to stop making the area so hospitable for illegals.
The Lonestar State has taken action and wants to put an end to the handouts.
“In 2017, Federation for American Immigration Reform or FAIR’s “The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers” report put the total cost of illegal immigration at $135 billion a year, while claiming undocumented immigrants paid only $19 billion a year in taxes. That leaves a net cost to local, state and federal governments of $116 billion a year. FAIR estimates that there are roughly 12.5 million illegal aliens in the country.
That cost often comes at the expense of our own children and their education when much-needed resources are diverted to educate illegal alien children who many times do not speak English, have very little formal education, and are served through free lunch programs and other taxpayer-funded services. Now the state of Texas is fighting back, refusing to allow state funding to educate illegal alien children housed in federal detention centers.”
“Texas school districts and charter school groups cannot use state funding to provide teachers and other resources to school-aged children housed in migrant shelters, the Texas Education Agency said, throwing into question whether states have a role in educating minors who cross the border illegally.
Prior to the TEA letter sent to the Promesa Public Schools on Aug. 21, the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District had received about five years of state funding to place one teacher and one paraprofessional in a Southwest Key shelter located within their boundary. This year, the Associated Press reported San Benito CISD sent 18 of its teachers and technological resources to Southwest Key’s Casa Padre shelter, hoping to receive an additional $2.8 million in state funding by including the shelter’s students in its enrollment numbers.”
Now if only the other border states would follow suit. If you take away the handouts for illegals it would solve part of the problem. People trying to get in might think twice. It’s unfortunate that the States have to act, the Federal govt should be cutting the illegals off. American Tax dollars should not be mishandled and spent on illegals.
