Andrew Cuomo, New York’s Governor, was part of a press conference to celebrate Billy Joel’s 100th-lifetime concert at Madison Square Garden.
The week before the New York Assembly passed a bill that provides $27 million in tuition for illegal immigrants. This week a bill to increase tuition for Gold Star families was blocked to stay at its level of $2.7 million. These are families of deceased and disabled military veterans.
“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself. 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.” said State Sen. Robert Ortt.
