Remember all the outrage over the school that kicked out students into ‘remote’ classes to make way for housing migrants?
That’s the literal state of the New York State budget.
Gov. Hochul has unveiled a budget with $2.4 billion allocated for caring for the mass of illegal alien migrant invaders.
While the state budget raises that amount by $500 million, it’s proposing to cut funding for schools in Long Island.
A total of 44 Long Island school districts would see decreased state funding next year, according to Gov. Kathy Hochul’s proposed 2025 executive budget.
Hochul discussed the proposed budget Tuesday in Albany. State budget officials say the change to amend funding measures is meant to help districts that need more funding.
“If you have a finite amount of resources a year, you have less and less to provide for schools that are growing or schools that have a higher need,” says New York state budget director Blake Washington.
It’s funny how it’s a more conservative part of the state that’s getting the ax. And state Republicans aren’t happy.
“Any cuts to education, obviously, will never go over well, either with the districts themselves or the (State) Legislature,” said Assemb. Edward Ra (R-Franklin Square).
Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay (R-Pulaski) said he was pleased Hochul would push Washington, but said he believes New York should reconsider designating itself as a “sanctuary” and added: “I’m not thrilled to have to spend any money on the migrant crisis.”
But New York State has no moral responsibility to the children of taxpayers, but does have one to every illegal alien invader.
“We’re doing this not just because it’s the right thing to do for the migrants and the city of New York,” Hochul said. “We also know that companies won’t do business in New York if there are thousands of people sleeping on the streets, or the quality of life is dramatically impacted because the city is forced to cut essential services.”
If you keep housing migrants, you’ll have more coming and more panhandling, robbing and assaulting people, not less. And companies will go on fleeing.
