Democrats Try Shaming American Families Who Gave The Ultimate Sacrifice

Democrats seem to be showing just how little they care about the Americans they supposedly serve. A recent bill was shut down by Dems that would have given tuition assistance to families who have given the ultimate sacrifice for this country. Instead of thanking these patriotic families Dems have chosen to help illegals instead.

The move comes a week after lawmakers passed a $175 billion state budget that included $27 million to provide college tuition aid for undocumented immigrants.”

Democrats just rejected tuition assistance for Gold Star families but approved it for illegal immigrants. Would these Democrats dare to look into the eyes of the children of fallen servicemen and women and say they matter less than those here illegally?”

It’s disgraceful,” said Assemblyman Gary Finch, R-Springport. “Soldiers who lay down their lives and make the ultimate sacrifice represent the best of us. The children they love so dearly deserve access to the opportunity and promise that is the hallmark of this country. I can’t imagine what’s in your heart when you vote ‘no’ on a bill like this.”

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, who chairs the committee, said in a statement Wednesday that an existing state scholarship program provides generous tuition aid to children, spouses and financial dependents of military members killed in combat zones.

“The bill in question sought to extend this program to cover any service members killed or seriously disabled in any mishap while on duty,” Glick said.

Glick claimed they halted the bill in order “to determine how many New Yorkers might be included in this expanded category.”

This is BS. Dems are willing to put forth 27 million for people that have no right being in this country but providing for the families of our fallen troops is a secondary issue. These Dems need to get with the program. This is essentially saying that people from other countries are more important than the men and woman that fight and die for our freedom. In what way is this ok?
