My sister is a former resident of Cottonwood who now works for the state of New Mexico. She watches as Illegal aliens enter the United States through southern New Mexico, and start working on the pipeline project, making $30 - $40 an hour. Their family also here illegally in turn drive up to the New Mexico Department of Welfare in Cadillac Escalades, GMC Denali and such, walk into the building and not ask for welfare handouts, but demand and say that they are entitled. This has been so disheartening to my sister that she has walked out of her position with the New Mexico Department of Welfare to look for other employment. Let’s understand this, my family is Mexican, so this is not about racism. My family has also used the Arizona welfare system because we were in fact poor as children, so this isn’t to beat up the welfare system also. This is about a federal government that does not work, it is broken and is breaking the citizens of this country. One day “we the people” will rise from the debris that is call the United States of America. Don’t get me wrong, I love my country, I just hate our government. With elections coming up next month, get out and vote, please just vote wisely. Thank you for your time.
