MALLIOTAKIS BLASTS AID FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS OVER STORM VICTIMS Assemblywoman decries Assembly’s misplaced priorities
Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-Brooklyn, Staten Island) recently blasted the Assembly Majority for renewing its push for tuition assistance and scholarship programs for illegal aliens (A.2597), while families on Staten Island and in Brooklyn are struggling to put their lives back together in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Malliotakis expressed her astonishment that the legislature would divert its attention from the most important task at hand; assisting those whose lives were forever altered by the storm.
“In our community, people have lost their homes, their property, their life’s work and even their family members,” said Malliotakis. “These people have suffered through unfathomable adversity, and they are the ones who deserve our assistance and attention. To focus time, energy and most importantly tax dollars on tuition aid for illegal aliens at a time when lifelong Americans are fighting to put their lives back together is unconscionable and frankly offensive. I am appalled by the Majority’s misplaced priorities and urge anyone in support of this bill to take a walk through my district and see who really needs and deserves a helping hand right now.”
