Milbury, Massachusetts has two problems and only enough funds to solve one. The small city to the west of Boston can either continue to pay its teachers and keep all of its schools — most of which are facing 30 kids to a classroom — open for business, or they can continue feeding and sheltering nearly 10,000 immigrants who have flocked there because of its status as a “sanctuary city.”
For most of America, this would be a no-brainer. Choose between your children and people looking for a free ride. Decide if you want your kids to have to bus across town to join classes that will reach nearly 40 kids to a teacher or give away free food and beds to people who are here to use our system, get a job and send all of their money back home to their families.
For most of America, the answer is simple. ForMilbury, Massachusetts, the answer is “compassion.” Mayor Steve Goad announced this morning that Milbury will continue to welcome and provide for those people in need who are “in fear for their lives and their families.” In fear of what? Having to go back where they came from? These aren’t political refugees we’re talking about. These are illegal border crossers. They broke the law to come here and need to go home and apply to come back properly like everyone else.
The cost of continuing to cover for these criminals is three public schools. Milbury will have no choice but to discontinue use of 2 elementary and one middle school after this school year ends. The children lose so the lawless can be free.
