"Don't take our [your] money."

Democrats in Texas have brought a string of illegal immigrants (or 'undocumented humans', in their PC lingo)  to Austin to testify against a bill that would cut off taxpayer-funded financial aid to them.  (I am truly sad to say that some were from Texas A&M.)
One after another, one illegal student after another, they lined up and said things like “this bill will steal our dream” or “… I can barely afford tuition now, much less if I have to pay out-of-state tuition.”  . . . Some contradicted themselves by suggesting they would be proud to become Americans, yet could not understand that laws are designed to protect the citizens from undue taxation, which this is.  They acted as if the laws didn’t apply to them.  They felt as if they deserve to continue receiving our money. . . . [W]e listened to a few more illegal students.  The students explained they would have a much more difficult time paying for tuition if they were forced to pay out-of-state rates.  One student said the bill would basically “oppress a certain class in the state of Texas.  What I mean by that is, you’re purposely not wanting to let people get an education, which means we want them (Hispanics) to stay here and not get educated.”  The student went on to say if they couldn’t go to college, then the Taxpayers are going to have to pay for the increase in crime.
This reminds of the 'long, hot summers' of the 1960s & 70s that were blamed on the race riots of the time; another euphemism for political blackmail.

Fortunately, there were those who testified in favour of the bill, most of them Hispanic, it would seem.

  1. seems like a great time for police to protect the citizens and round up the illegals and throw them in a work camp to get my tax payer money out of them.


Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
