An Astute Observation

The Daily Caller posted an article today about a statement made by Bob Ross, president of the Maryland Prince George’s County NAACP, about the impact of President Obama’s amnesty program.

The article reports his comments on the impact of illegal immigrants:

“67 million — almost 68 million when you round it — spent on illegal immigrants children’s education [in Maryland],” Ingraham (Laura Ingraham) noted. “What is your reaction to that?”

“It’s a lot of money, and our resources can’t handle it here in Prince George’s County,” Ross said. “We’re fixing to lose about $68 million statewide, on the local level we’re losing about $10 million of school funding. So, I don’t know how we’re going to handle this, the cost factor.”

…“You have to stand up for what’s right,” he continued. “After the Selma March and what we went through as a people, we have to continue the fight. Like I said before, we’re not going to the back of the bus again. We already been on that route.”

“Do you think they should be sent back home?” asked Ingraham. “Or should they just be educated in all these communities, despite the cost?”

“If they follow the process and go through the legality to remain in the country, they should remain,” Ross said. “But if the process says they have to return, then they have to return.”

“Our kids have dreams too,” he pointed out. “I want to be real clear about that. They keep saying: the DREAMers, DREAMers, DREAMers. We have dreams also. Every child that is native-born in this country has a dream. We should not have to sacrifice for newcomers that are coming in and not followed the process.”

The bottom line here is simple. The influx of illegal aliens into America is going to overload our federal programs. Adding five million Americans at one time puts a tremendous burden on our schools, labor market, and other resources. It also makes it more difficult for Americans who are here legally to find jobs and support their families. Bob Ross has figured that out. Hopefully, more Americans will realize that very quickly.
