Members of We The People Rising, The Remembrance Project, American First Latinos and Concerned Citizens of California on Veterans Day held a rally in front of Democrat Representative Norma Torres’ Ontario district office to demand that Congress Members take action to stop the Biden administration from awarding $450,000 to border crossers who were “separated from their families” and instead dedicate those tax dollars to our VETERANS, not illegal border crossers.
“On any given night, we have more than 40,000 veterans who are homeless; they deserve these tax dollars, not illegal border crossers. More than 1.5 million veterans in the United States live in poverty; they deserve these tax dollars, not illegal border crossers,” said Raul Rodriguez, CA State Coordinator for America First Latinos. It has been reported that as many as 5,500 border crossers could qualify for Biden’s $450,000 “reparation” pay out. The New York Post calculated that the cost of this plan could amount to more than $1 billion dollars.
Updated reports on homeless veterans and veterans living in poverty along with a letter was presented demanding that Norma Torres and Congress Members stop Biden from giving our tax dollars for so called “reparations” to illegal border crossers “separated” from their families, and instead, give those tax dollars to our veterans in need who have served their country.
