Inside the Beltway: ‘Parents are not domestic terrorists’
The National School Boards Association sent a six-page letter recently to President Biden requesting “federal law enforcement” and other assistance to school board members and education officials in public places.
“Acts of malice, violence, and threats against public school officials have increased, the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes,” advised the letter, which can be found at NSBA.org.
” “There should be safeguards in place to protect public school teachers and dedicated educators as they do their jobs,” said the organization.
The American Principles Project, a Virginia-based non-profit group that “to defend American family in politics,” has rejected the idea.
“Parents do not constitute domestic terrorists. They have every right to be upset at the terrible state of public education in many communities. They are taught biology doesn’t really matter and they can ‘change their gender’. They are taught to judge others by their skin color and to consider the country they inherited as irredeemably racist. Ineffectively or not being taught, subjects they should be learning are too often being taught,” stated Terry Schilling president of the group in a statement shared by Inside the Beltway.
“In an sane world and under a sane President, the Department of Justice might investigate public school officials for complete neglect of duty in properly educating and forming America’s next generation. It is clear that the current administration is not sane. Parents should ignore the latest intimidation attempt and continue to respectfully, vigorously, and actively participate in the political process for their children’s sake. “There is no greater issue that we could be involved,” said Mr. Schilling.
DOING The MATH
A new analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies finds that immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally will receive $8.2 billion annually in cash payments from the new Child Tax Credit, which is part of the stalled budget-reconciliation bill.
” The new program replaces the Additional Child Tax Credit, which paid cash to low income workers who had children. According to the analysis, the new Child Tax Credit (CTC), which drops the work requirement of the old ACTC while substantially increasing the payments, resembles traditional cash welfare.
“Any illegal immigrant who has a U.S-born child can receive cash payments from CTC. This is similar to the old ACTC. Our analysis shows that legal immigrants will receive $17.2 billion from the new CTC. It is sometimes called a “refundable credit”, but it is actually a cash grant for those who don’t pay federal income taxes.” The research revealed.
Research Director Steven Camarota stated in a statement, “Giving much larger cash payments may help alleviate high rates of poverty among immigrant families but it also means any immigrant permitted into the country to fill lower-wage positions potentially has a greater negative impact on taxpayers.” Furthermore, the decision to allow illegal immigrants to access the program is likely encourage more illegal immigration
