New York Assembly Democrats on Tuesday blocked a bill that proposed expanding college tuition aid for children of deceased and disabled military veterans after– having a week earlier– approved a state budget that set aside $27 million in college tuition aid for illegal immigrants.

The Assembly’s Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 on Tuesday to shelve the bill, effectively quashing its chances of going to the floor, the Post-Standard reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

The decision came after committee chair Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, and Speaker Carl Heastie said $27 million from the state’s budget would go towards supporting the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act, which allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state aid for higher education, Newsweek reported.

Glick said any expansion of college tuition aid to Gold Star families was not within the state’s budget and pointed to an already-existing program that provides $2.7 million to 145 students who are dependents of vets who served in combat zones, the New York Post reported.

“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said State Sen. Robert Ortt, R-Niagara. “We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

    Absolutely disgusting and shameful, where is this country heading with such evil.
    Illegals DO NOT DESERVE ANYTHING AND GOLD STAR FAMILIES DO.
    There is a HELL waiting for these people and it can’t come soon enough.
    NO TAXPAYER SHOULD PAY FOR ILLEGALS TO HAVE FREE TUITION LET ALONE ANYTHING ELSE.

      Agree!! This is despicable!! Why do illegal immigrants, who broke our laws, get anything from us? We don’t owe them anything!!! Gold star families should be our priority and that money in the budget given to the illegals should be given to the Gold Star families!! What are they thinking in NY? I guess they are seeking future votes from the illegals to stay in office!
