New York Democrats Reject Aid Bill for Gold Star Families but Approve Same Benefits for Illegals

Democrats in New York — home to Bill DeBlasio, Alexandria Ocascio-Cortez, and the Cuomo dynasty — are continuing their competition with California to see which state can become the biggest anti-Trump haven for America haters.

Last week, Democrats who rule the Empire State voted to reject a bill that would have provided less than $3 million in aid to Gold Star families — those who have lost military members in war, but only after passing a measure earlier providing $27 million in the same benefits to illegal immigrants.

The New York Republican Party couldn’t let that outrage stand without calling out members of the Garbage Party.

“Democrats just rejected tuition assistance for Gold Star families but approved it for illegal immigrants. Would these Democrats dare to look into the eyes of the children of fallen servicemen and women and say they matter less than those here illegally?” the party tweeted.

“We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally … Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money,” added State Sen. Robert Ortt, a Republican from Niagara, on Thursday.

The proposed legislation would have expanded a program that, at present, serves 145 students who are either dependents or relatives of service members who were killed in combat zones. The legislation would have allocated additional funds for those military families that qualify.

As outrageous as this is, it should surprise no one, especially conservatives. Remember, this is the loony bin state whose governor celebrated an infanticide bill earlier this year by ordering the spire atop One World Trade Center to be lit in pink to celebrate the passage of what the grossly misnamed “Reproductive Health Act.”

If he were being honest, Gov. Andrew Cuomo would have ordered the spire lit in red.

When hatred of a sitting president guides political judgment and legislation, we have truly reached a point of no return/no reconciliation in America. Let the Garbage Party implode.
