The Santa Clarita City Council was scheduled to vote on sanctuary city status on May 8th…Something happened that was really different. A young liberal decided he’d had enough of freebies for illegals. Education is his focus because he’s seen how illegal alien students are a priority over everyone else. In fact, in February of 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown funded student illegals and cut middle class scholarships.
The young millennial also mentions his “middle class parents” who have struggled to make ends meet. This is a great example of what happens when a liberal sees how unfair it is for illegals to take our hard earned money and get special treatment over legal citizens. Hopefully, his journey continues and he’ll become a full-fledged conservative….The first part of the speech is a little hard to hear but then the sound gets better as he gets into the main part:
We’ve reported on different states that give financial aid and even tuition to illegal alien students. This past January, NY Cuomo announced he wanted to give “Dreamers” free college tuition!
