To the Editor:
I am once again appalled by the desire to suck as much money out of the tax payers as possible. However, this is especially grievous, in that it penalizes American citizens and legal immigrants to support people that should not be here in the first place.
This time it is State Sen. Brian Stack, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji and Assemblywoman Annette Chaparro, all Democrats from the 33rd District (Union City area) who introduced a bill (S-3007/A4590) to our State Legislature to provide replacement funding for any monies that President Trump may withhold because they refuse to obey the law and are harboring illegal immigrants.
Union City was one of the initial Abbott Districts that resulted in taking our tax dollars for their schools. This resulted in our property taxes being one of the highest in our County and approximately 65% of our entire property tax bill.
Now they want more of our money!
This is beyond belief and cannot be tolerated and is not even considering it could be a contributing to some future terrorist action.
Should Union City and these three selfish elected officials succeed it no doubt will take more of our tax dollars for something that many of us disagree with and will already make our tax burden worse. This is on top of other tax sucking items such as COAH and property tax reassessment we in Scotch Plains are facing.
This situation I understand is especially horrendous, taking into consideration that at this past weeks League of Municipal meeting when the topic was mentioned some mayors cheered it on. This is very disturbing to say the least.
I hope that the tax payers of NJ stand up and tell these three and their elected Legislators NO! Do not take any more of my hard earned tax dollars for this purpose.
Should someone not know how to contact here elected officials, here is the web site: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/legsearch.asp
I will make every effort of sending this letter to or call the above officials, and my elected representatives, the media, but I suspect, the Star Ledger will not print it, but I anticipate others will.
