      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)?

      ************************************************************* letter by a florida teacher… a teacher speaks

      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’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 ‘loves her country.’

      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’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’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.
