A note on state government to my Republican friends:
Believe it or not, a bill passed last year in the Republican-managed Georgia Senate created a new, and additional, taxpayer-funded Adult Education program for the state that included illegal “migrants.” The eligibility parameters in SB 112 were that beneficiaries: “reside in this state; be 21 years of age or older; and have not attained a high school diploma.” Assuming an expert estimate of the illegal “migrant” population of Georgia (400,000) is accurate, the bill would likely have extended “welcome to Georgia” benefits to about 50,000 illegals.
Only one Republican in the Senate voted “no” on this lunacy.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Jason Anavitarte (R- Dallas) was promoted as the “Workforce EXCELeration” measure. Never mind that illegal aliens are not legally eligible to work anywhere in the U.S.
And most conservative voters aren’t going to sit quietly while a law is put in place that would allow illegal aliens to serve on a “school choice” oversight committee. But the GOP-pushed “School Choice” legislation (SB 233) does exactly that. It took years of pressure for the Republican sponsors to change the bill to exclude students in the country illegally from the proposed private school benefit. They need to do the same for parents.
The above examples are not from “elect me” promises you hear in campaign speeches, but it is happening under the Gold Dome while political “journalists” help keep the secret.
See also the little known “Dual Enrollment” program that puts high school students in college classes in the name of “expanding the workforce.” Taxpayers pay 100% of the tuition, plus books and fees. Illegal aliens are welcomed into the program. This while conservative activists battle every year to stop GOP legislation that would award in-state tuition in our public colleges to illegally present foreign students who have already graduated from our tax-funded high schools. Never mind that illegal aliens are not legally eligible to work anywhere in the U.S.
Then there is the ongoing Georgia “Registered Apprenticeship Program” (RAP) that allows employers to send employees to the state technical college system to be “upskilled” at taxpayer’s expense. The state will pay up to $50,000 to the employer who sends workers to be trained. What a deal!
As has been uncovered by pro-enforcement immigration activist D.A. King (see ImmigrationPoliticsGA.com), there is nothing in the state law that created the RAP that excludes either illegally present employees or employers. Never mind that illegal aliens are not generally eligible to work anywhere in the U.S.
Dear Republican legislators and neighbors: This conservative, independent, pro-borders, Black American wants to vote GOP for state level candidates. Please provide some incentive.
