There Is a Real Chance to Stop Funding for “Sustainable Communities.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Action Alert:

(This in from Virginia property

rights activist Cathy Turner)


 

The House of Representatives have cut funding from

Obama’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities program.

The program has been targeted for elimination from the

House FY 2012 spending bill.

 

Defunding Sustainable Development has also come through a

Department of Transportation bill, a draft of which completely

eliminates funding for what are called TIGER grants, which provides

funding for the largest grants through the Partnership for Sustainable

Communities program.

 

This is great news for those of us opposed to Sustainable Development.

It means less money and fewer weapons coming out of Washington, DC

to enforce this assault on property rights and America’s way of life.

 

Now the spending bill is moving to the Senate – the danger zone.

Sustainablists are planning a major push to get the Senate to replace

the appropriations for the Sustainable Communities budget.

The American Planning Association (APA) is leading the charge,

calling for massive pressure to be put on Senators in what the APA

is calling “Planners Day,” set for September 20th.

 

The APA’s message to the Senators is that the cuts

“ignores both our nation’s jobs crisis and the drastic

need for infrastructure investment.”

 

In fact, the House action is not only fiscally responsible in

a day when the government is completely broke, but it is a lie

that the program will help either jobs or infrastructure.

The exact opposite is true.

Sustainable Development is a jobs killer and it destroys infrastructure –

refusing to build roads, tearing down dams and the like.

 

We can strike a huge blow against Sustainable Development.

Action to take:

On September 20th, call both of your U.S. Senators and

demand that they maintain the House restrictions on the

Sustainability Planning grants and the caps on planning

expenses now called for in the Fiscal Year spending bill.

Tell them America cannot afford these grants.

The cuts will save billions of dollars and keep special interests

out of your community’s planning decisions.

Tell them you oppose Sustainable Development.

The Senate switchboard is (202) 224-3121

 

Make the calls and counter the impact of one of the nation’s

most powerful forces behind Sustainable Development (APA).

Win this fight and we will show that we are now strong enough

to turn the tide away from top down control and soviet-style

government – and towards freedom!

 

If you have a chance, call your Representative in the House

and thank them for standing firm against this Sustainable

Development monster. And ask them to continue to stand firm

if the final bill goes to a conference committee.

Defund Sustainable Development and strike a blow for fiscal

sanity and freedom.

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
