Letters to the Editor

Take care of our citizens first

I don’t mean to sound stingy or greedy but if the federal government has money to relocate Syrian refugees, then why doesn’t it have money to give those on Social Security a raise? I understand there are people in other countries that are far worse off than we are but, we need to take care of ourselves before we can help others. There are way too many people living far below the poverty level in America to even think about those in other countries.
