You Stay, I Pay

Those familiar with the painfully-liberal politics of Montgomery County, MD won’t be surprised to learn that county taxpayers provide rent subsidies to illegal immigrants. But this knuckle-headed notion has also reached Arlington, in Northern Virginia. In fact, in Arlington there are citizens on a waiting list for this government largesse, while illegals are sitting comfortably in their tax-funded apartments.

I know the problem fo illegal immigration is never going to be completely solved, but how to county politicians explain making actual American citizens suffer while my tax dollars go to illegals? The answer: they don’t explain, the just call anyone who points out this injustice a “bigot.”

And “bigot” is an ironic accusation given that many citizens who receive housing aid are black and Hispanic, and some are naturalized American citizens as well.

If siding with a working-class black family over a group of illegal immigrants is bigotry, then sign me up.
