The Weekly Post: from Tirade Parade

This week's post o' the week comes from that sharp-tongued UVM student at Tirade Parade, who rails against Bob Kiss' interest in turning Burlington into a sanctuary city. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with T-Rage, but I do like the way she expresses herself. Very fiesty!

Did he not hear any of the talk during the "Day With No Immigrants?" Because as far as I could tell, people were shouting about how bad regular immigrants have it — but the mayor wants to go ahead and make it worse for them by giving jobs and housing to people who haven't even gone through the system. Not to mention the troubling issue of the general shortage of affordable housing. I'm about to graduate and will be leaving this state because the available jobs in my field don't pay what I would need to live here.

Mr. Kiss, have you heard of the term "Brain Drain"? Because this little "let's help illegal immigrants" shtick is the exact opposite thing you should be worrying about when there are energetic, young, qualified people leaving your state (to build and strengthen the economies for other states).

Read more (and comment) here. Or see an edited version on the letters page of this week's Seven Days.
