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 
U.S. Citizens and who get the PELL Grant, which is a federal grant (no 
payback 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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. 

Something is wrong here. I am Sorry, but after hearing that
they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish enough
is enough. That's a real slap in the face. It was written by
Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way
it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the
translation -- not even close.

I don't Care whether this offends someone or not, but this is 
MY COUNTRY. IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP please 
pass this along. I am not against immigration -- I just expect
immigrants to come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor;
have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live
by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other
immigrants have in the past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA! 


PART OF THE PROBLEM - Think about this: If you 
don't want to forward this for fear of offending 
someone - YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It
is time for America to speak up.
