Inslee should explain support of illegal students

Letters to the Editor


I’m writing this letter in reply to an article in the Grant County Journal dated Monday, January 27, 2014, on page 3 with the heading of “Inslee’s” and under the heading of financial aid.

Inslee wants lawmakers to approve a plan that would expand state financial aid to students who are living in the county illegally.

Just in case Inslee doesn’t know or doesn’t care to know what illegal means, the following is what a dictionary had to say: Prohibited by law, not legal, unauthorized and unlawful!

Charity begins at home, which to all legal residents is America or the good old U.S.A.!

If our governor wants to help the illegals why not start within our prisons as they all did something illegal; but most are Americans and an education could make them a better American citizen.

I would sure like to know what Mr. Inslee had in mind to come up with such an idea, when we have a lot of American students that could use some help to pay for their college education.

In the last two weeks I have talked to quite a few Americans about this subject of help for the illegal students and not one of them thought it was a good thing to do.

Yes, I am a U.S. Navy veteran and I’m proud that I was able to serve my country of America. But I never ever thought we would support illegal students over our own American students.

Mr. Governor Jay Inslee I believe you owe an explanation to all of the Washington state citizens as to why you support the illegals.

A concerned American
