To The Daily Sun,
Every morning and afternoon I hear ads from a law firm about helping immigrants get green cards and helping people stay in this country and other things. At the end in Spanish and Portuguese (language of Brazil) it says it speaks the respective language.
This is not intended for legal immigrants. They are here in New Hampshire and New Hampshire citizens beware.
Massachusetts spends $1.1 million a week in housing the homeless. I was in several motels for work a couple years ago and the majority did not speak English. They were housed in western Massachusetts where the motel rates are cheaper. The towns had increased school spending, increased students and also bilingual teachers.
Manchester is having a housing problem already. Will this problem travel north? Why not?
Illegals are in line for housing and all the federal and state benefits. Our citizens could be behind them in line for housing and other benefits. We have many veterans and they could be behind them in line for benefits. This makes me so angry.
The illegals that work, work hard. They are crossing the border. It is only a two hour bus ride to the Lakes Region from Boston. Summer jobs — do you know for sure that your employer would not hire one in your place? Parents, grandparents — will your grandchild have competition from an illegal for a summer job, for tuition aid in college, or even a place in college? Yes, your child and grandchild may not get accepted in the college of their choice to make room for an illegal alien.
Your federal taxes go to subsidizing this. My friend spoke Spanish and would fill out the income forms for illegals. When asked how many children? 14 — yes 14, so we both know there were no federal tax money taken out of their paycheck, like yours and mine.
Several years ago my son applied to mow the grass at a country club on the ocean in New Hampshire. I took time off to take him to an agency in Massachusetts to apply for the position. No one spoke English. Needless to say he did not get the job.
Recently a nun from Iraq was not given a visa to the U.S. She wanted to speak in front of Congress to tell the murder of Christians in the Middle East. My son's mother-in-law invited her best friend from school to the wedding. She was not granted a visa. Yet we do nothing to stop the illegals from crossing the border. I read that 36,000 mothers came to the U.S. to deliver their babies last year for citizenship. The babies get citizenship and then the mothers get to stay on our dime to raise them.
Millions is being spent on illegal aliens and yes that is what they are. They are not undocumented citizens. We are trillions in debt.
The Republicans said elect us and we will stop this (and other things). Before the Senate was the bill for our budget. Conservative Republicans did not sign it as they wanted to defund the president's executive order which protects some illegals from deportation. Senator Ayotte was not among these, and we know, of course, Senator Shaheen would not be and was not one of these.
Senate confirmation vote passed on the new attorney general who will support the president's executive order, which the president himself for years said was illegal and that he had now power to do this. Senators Ayotte and Shaheen voted to confirm this new attorney general.
Senator Ayotte said she was against illegal aliens but has done nothing to stop it. I do not want to give her another six years to do nothing. Maggie Hassan is rumored to run for Senate and she would be worse.
We need representation in Washington that will stop this. We need a true conservative. Unfortunately New Hampshire does not offer true conservatives. We must search them out and do everything we can to elect them.
I was in Massachusetts when Scott Brown ran the first time for Senate. There were handmade posters everywhere. We do not need money. We need a candidate who will work hard for the people.
Senator Ayotte said if elected she would stop Obamacare and stop illegal immigration. Well, she has done none of this. Senator Shaheen had a bill that she sponsored on more efficient water heaters and is sponsoring a bill for a woman on the $2 dollar bill. Is this what we sent her to Washington, D.C., for?
The average income for the middle class is going down and down. It was $56,000 thousand and is now $51,000. We spend more on groceries for less. Just recently I saw an ad to buy vegetable plants. Four for $10. Last year is was three for $5. One more plant at double the cost.
I do not know what the answer is. Another party? A grassroots organization. A search for a true conservative to represent the citizens of New Hampshire in Washington, D.C. 2016 is not far away. Candidates for president are coming all the time. We must ask them the hard questions. Not just what they stand for but how they will fix things. Citizens in New Hampshire must become involved in the next election. We must make sure we elect representatives that do what they say. We must start now, before it is too late.
