    <FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color="#008000" size="4">If you want to live here, come here legally....like all of the OTHER immigrants do.

    <FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color="#008000" size="4">I have nothing against immigrants. Let's face it, most of us are here because our ancestors immigrated here. I fully welcome anyone who comes here legally and is able to support themselves.

    I just got this forwarded to me. It&#39;s funny because it fits right in with this thread.
    Does anyone know if this kind of thing is true??
    ************************************************** ***********
    Letter by a Florida teacher... A teacher speaks out.

    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&#39;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 &#39;loves HER country.&#39;


    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&#39;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 U.S. Citizen, you don&#39;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.

    Wow, and just think all of us taxpaying Americans are paying for this too! Wonder if we could get by doing this to HER country (not that anyone would want to)?

    yeah I believe it my x was uscoast guard and he was always pissed about the help that the illegals could get but those of us working for a living slobs couldn't get any help without going thru a 1000 miles of red tape only to be turned down.

    I have ended this thread due to the request of several members, but I

    did NOT want your question to go ignored, while I am not familiar with

    all of the programs mentioned in the teachers email, the CARIBE program

    is very real.



    http://www.caribeprogram.com/



    As are many others.



    Once again, due to requests this thread is NOW CLOSED. No further

    posts that hit moderation will be allowed thru.
