Letter: Keep America’s tax dollars for citizens and not refugees

Keep America’s tax dollars for citizens and not refugees

My heart goes out to Barb and Jon DeLong after reading their very real concerns with appropriate pay for those they depend on to take care of their daughter, one of our most vulnerable citizens.

As a concerned conservative, it brings a question to mind: Why is it that our federal and state government has an endless pool of our tax dollars to import and take care of Middle Eastern refugees and children, then their families from Central America? Why is it they have an endless pool of our tax dollars to take care of illegal immigrants from Mexico?

We don’t have the tax dollars to care for our most vulnerable. We don’t have the tax dollars to give increases to Social Security for our seniors. We don’t have tax dollars to take care of our veterans. We don’t have the tax dollars to properly fund Medicare for our seniors.

We cannot afford to be a welfare state with an open border. With the election but one month away, please ask yourself, can we afford to take care of the rest of the world while ignoring the needs of our citizens here at home?

I for one will vote to take care of America first and to make America great again this year. I hope you will too.
