I salute the Town of Cheektowaga Supervisor Diane Benczkowski advocating a temporary restraining order to prevent any more asylum seekers from being transferred to Cheektowaga. Supervisor Brian Kulpa and the Amherst Town Board should take the very same action at the September 5th town board meeting. Neighboring counties have come out solidly against migrants coming to those counties as we cannot afford the already high, property, sales and transfer taxes placing New York State as one of the most heavily taxed states in America. As the migrants have come to Cheektowaga and Amherst we have seen alleged rapes, a nail knifing in Amherst and a recent burglary. Amherst residents are saddled with more policing needs and costs with no apparent financial support from Albany and Washington. It is estimated that each migrant student attending the Sweet Home Schools will cost local school taxpayers about $22,000 more per year per student. Amherst taxpayers have a severe difficulty already paying some of the highest education costs in America as the migrant educational costs will further burden Sweet Home Schools' residents and taxpayers even more.

Letter to local elected officials

by Will James, Amherst Republican Committee Member


Dear NYS Senator Sean Ryan & NYS Assemblywoman Karen McMahon

Dear NYS Legislators,

We have two items of concern for you:

1. The SUNY is now requiring all undergrad students to take a new mandatory course in social justice, racial equality, Diversity Equity Inclusion in order to graduate.

As reported by broadcaster Chris Plante (WMAL, Washington), the course description is almost word for word from a Marxist website.

As a New Yorker taxpayer I am opposed to the use of our tax monies to support Marxism and implore you to do all you can to reverse this divisive requirement.

2. A NYS standardized education test for students in New York state includes “anti-Zionist” questions that delegitimize the State of Israel. The 'Global History and Geography Regents II' exam asks which group benefited most from the plan, with the desired response being “Zionists and Jewish immigrants” instead of "Israelies".

As a New Yorker taxpayer I am opposed to all attempts to delegitimize our friend Israel, and to foment untruthful beliefs in the minds of New York students.

Jewish leaders, including former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Brooklyn Councilwoman Inna Vernikov and the Americans Against Antisemitism group, noted that the questions framed the creation of Israel as a European endeavor, ignoring thousands of years of Jewish history in the region. “It’s unconscionable and shameful that at a time of heightened violent antisemitism our state’s educational materials would include what amounts to anti-Zionist propaganda—a truly pathetic attempt at surreptitiously harming Israel,” Hikind said in a media statement.
