Immigrants & K-12 - Marlborough, MA

This is true. it's not the childrens fault BUT that doesn't make it right either. I am a single mother struggling. I have to pay for my health care for me and my 6 year old. i have to make my son's lunch for school everyday. I have to stretch my money after paying my bills to be able to afford food and sometimes i have to use my last resort which is the food bank. Thank god for them. My neighbors upstairs have Mass Health it's mom and dad and 5 children and it says right on the application that they may receive Mass Health benefits regardless of their immigration status and they do. they receive food stamps and free breakfast and lunch at school everyday. They have been here for 6 years and work under the table so they are not paying taxes. I have been working since I was 16, which is almost 30 years and I can't get help. So of course lots of people in my same situation are getting upset.  (Mar 23, 2012 | post #5)
