No Head Start here
To our Republican members of Congress,
My good Latina friend has a child who just turned 3. The child is an American citizen and will be a productive citizen, thanks to the nonprofit cooperative preschool in our town. It is no thanks to your sequester which has canceled Head Start in our town. What were you thinking? Her parents (undocumented) care enough to get her there (15 miles, two trips) twice a week. Head Start would have been three blocks from their apartment. They both work jobs which no “American” would even consider and have both been paying Social Security tax into a black hole for more than 10 years!
