President of the Maryland Prince George’s County NAACP spoke on “The Laura Ingraham Show” Monday, and discussed the influx of illegal immigrants and the subsequent loss of public resources for those who reside legally.
Prince George’s County is attempting to create two high schools dedicated to teaching recent immigrants English.
Ingraham raised the financial risks attached to immigration:
“67 million — almost 68 million when you round it — spent on illegal immigrants children’s education. What is your reaction to that?”
Ross responded by saying:
“It’s a lot of money, and our resources can’t handle it here in Prince George’s County.”
“We’re fixing to lose about $68 million statewide, on the local level we’re losing about $10 million of school funding. So, I don’t know how we’re going to handle this, the cost factor.”
Ross concluded with his view that a continued push for amnesty could dash the dreams of those born and raised in the U.S.:
“We have dreams also. Every child who is native born has a dream. We should not have to sacrifice for new comers who have not followed the process.”
It’s been projected that upwards of 16,000 people are set to receive benefits in 2017 under President Obama’s executive orders.
