  1. It breaks my heart that there are so many in this world that need help. That being said, if we accept every refugee and just put them on Government subsidies, we are just entrapping them into a multi-generational slavery of Government dependency. Secure the borders, take in immigrants that have a sponsor, that are willing to follow the laws of the City, County, State and Country, that they have chosen to immigrate into. Let them assimilate into The USA, by speaking English, by paying taxes, and by carrying their own weight.

  2. Every New Jersey Democrat who supports amnesty should be required to take one into Their homes and feed, clothe, house, educated and provide medical care FROM THEIR OWN CHECKBOOKS and not the rest of us. Why is it that Democrats are so compasionate with other people’s money but not their own?

  3. From all that you read, we cannot afford to feed, house and take care of so many of our legal children. How does dumping more into the system help these kids? And federal money is still coming from our pockets. How about sending a bill to their country of origin for what it is costing us to provide to them

  4. Freehold Borough schools already have over 70 percent of the population defined as economically disadvantaged. The K-8 is bursting at the seams and has no room at all. With the borough schools in so much trouble. why is anyone even considering putting more poor kids into the system,? By comparison, there are districts that have declining student populations. Why not send the illegals there?

  5. Kick them out and send them back !!!!!!!!!!! America is being destroyed !!!!!

  6. Get rid of them, send the back……………the People have spoken!
