City Invests $18 Mil to Help Illegal Aliens Get Jobs (NY City)
Judicial Watch ^ | July 25, 2013

New York City is making headlines—and angering many—for becoming the nation’s first municipality to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to help illegal immigrants get jobs and learn English. How generous of the Big Apple!

Under the plan the city will become the first in the U.S. to invest $18 million in a special program aimed at helping illegal aliens find work and get driver’s licenses. City officials have named it the immigration relief program and it will include adult education classes and legal services, among other benefits. It is expected to help tens of thousands of illegal immigrants living in the area.

The move has made New York lawmakers heroes among the powerful open borders movement, which applauds the effort as an investment that will allow thousands of immigrants to legally live and work in the country. Everyone will benefit because this will enable the undocumented to legally work, live and reinvest in the city, according to the New York Immigration Coalition, a group that “values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all.”

Creating a multi-million-dollar program to help illegal immigrants was the idea of New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who is running for mayor this year. At her request the city will provide $13.7 million to “community-based organizations” for “outreach” and $4.3 million to a public university to expand educational opportunities for illegal aliens. “It’s exciting to be the first city in America to make this investment in our young immigrants who, in turn, have so much to offer our city,” Quinn said, reminding that “New York City was built by immigrants.”

Quinn also thanked President Obama for sparing illegal immigrants around the U.S. from deportation and stressed the importance of local governments doing their part to help out and not “let the opportunity of these federal actions fall short.” In this case a big chunk of the public funds will go to expanding educational opportunity, especially for adults in need of basic literacy and English proficiency.

U.S. taxpayers already spend tens of millions of dollars annually to educate illegal immigrants in public elementary and high schools around the nation and the tab is especially high in Mexican border states where many students come to the system with virtually no literacy skills, even in their native language. Some states—including California, Illinois, New York, Utah and Texas—stick it to American taxpayers even harder by also offering illegal immigrants discounted tuition at public colleges and universities.

The investment is well worth it, according to one New York City Councilman, who assures that “expanding educational opportunity is not only good for the economy but it is also going to help keep our immigrant families together.” The same councilman proceeded to congratulate himself and his colleagues asserting that “the New York City Council once again leads the way on responding to the vital needs of our immigrant rich communities.”

Pay for criminals to get American jobs. Why should any of us abide by the law anymore? Our government doesn’t.

Govt (aka, ‘Rats) is ramping up to support the up and coming new voter base. The old voter base should take notice...

I hear you. These NY City RATS take citizen tax dollars and train illegals to take the citizens jobs. Pathetic!

New Yorkers should be rioting in the streets. This is treason. The Marxists are undermining the fabric of American society with foreign invaders simply for their vote.

Great! TX will be sure to point them east. We are covered up with Mexican criminals down here, so we will be happy to get them out of our state.

Wait... I thought the reason we're supposed to let these criminal invaders just waltz in was that they're here to do the low-level jobs that native-born and legal immigrants won't do.

So WHY does NYC need to spend millions to find work for them?

I’m so old ... I can remember when laws—even immigration laws—were based upon what was the best public policy.
In other words, what was best for you and me and America, not what was best for criminal scofflaws. Gang of 8: Traitors.

After the 2008 election, the Democrat Party discarded the Blacks and unions as their base in favor of muslims and Spanish Speaking groups as their new voting base. The problem is that the Blacks and unions do not have the intelligence to realize that they have been left high and dry by their masters. But, the Conservatives cannot throw rocks at them because year after year, election after election they have supported the republicans only to be told the day after the election to take a hike, get back under the porch. We will call you next election. Until then, don't bother us.

If I lived there I’d tell the government that I want my money back.

If a totalitarian regime start shooting citizens in NY, will they make those same citizens pay for the bullets used to shoot them as well?

Every lawmaker that backed this should be prosecuted for theft of taxpayer funds!

If the Founders were still around, my guess is there would be a whole lot of “Trees of Liberty” in NY getting watered soon after this traitorous announcement!

This is the direct result of one party rule. There is nothing to stop them from doing whatever it is they want to do.

The Democrats are buying votes with tax payer money. They believe (and polls confirm) illegal aliens will vote for Democrats legally (after amnesty) or illegally.

Republicans have been neutered and so the last line of defense against all this is the media. Unfortunately for New York (and us) the media has already tossed the pretext of being fair and balance, they are in full voice as cheerleaders for the left.

To them, the end justifies the means. If bribing illegals means more votes for Democrats then that is what they will support.

Geez, what next? I think at this point, if I saw a headline saying, “$18 billion program to transfer homes from Americans to undocumented immigrants,” it wouldn’t even surprise me. What’s La Raza’s motto? “For the race, everything; for those outside the race, nothing”? Our government seems to have adopted it and taken it one further. “For illegals, everything. For hardworking, taxpaying Americans? Screw you.”
