Another violation of Federal Law that will go unprosecuted by Obama’s DOJ.
This week, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley signed a bill to require the state’s public universities to give undocumented aliens — generally illegal — in-state tuition privileges.
The bill, known as the Dream Act, is already the law in ten other states, including California, New York, Texas and Illinois.
But critics argue that the bill will give illegal aliens better treatment than Americans and legal immigrants — thanks to existing diversity policies at universities.
University of Maryland (College Park) computer science Prof. James Purtilo told FoxNews.com that, during his time as an associate dean, he frequently saw admission officers favor students because of their “undocumented” status.
“They favor students with special circumstances. ‘Undocumented alien’ would be one of these special circumstances… They help fill out the diversity picture for the admissions office.”
Gustavo Torres, executive director of Casa de Maryland, which pushed for the bill, said he thought the concern over affirmative action was a non-issue. He noted that in the current system, undocumented immigrants are discriminated against in many ways.
“I don’t see how [they could have an advantage.] Those kids don’t qualify for anything at this point – their only benefit right now is in-state tuition. They can’t get scholarships or anything.”
“Generally illegal”?? They should be generally kicked out of this country to back from where they came.
“Their only benefit right now is in-state tuition.” Bullshit. They can’t get scholarships, but they get free tuition. What’s the fucking difference? Many of them get fake social security numbers, welfare, and free medical care, too. That’s not “affirmative action”, that’s aiding and abetting felons. They committed a felony by entering and staying in the United States in violation of Federal statute; Title 8 of the U.S. Code.
They’re criminals. I certainly hope they’re discriminated against.
……Obama also renewed his push last week for a national Dream Act, which would go further and provide a path to citizenship for undocumented students.
“We should stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents,” Obama said at the Mexico-Texas border on Tuesday. “We should stop denying them the chance to earn an education or serve in the military. And that’s why we need to pass the DREAM Act.”
Excuse me you sorry sack of apologist shit, but we’re supposed to punish people who break the law, including the illegals who drop “anchor babies” on our soil. They’ve flooded this country with more freeloaders. That’s why the so-called “DREAM Act” should be dropped. In fact, it died in the Senate last year.
……Affirmative action benefits can be substantial. A study of selective universities by Princeton sociologists Thomas Espenshade and Alexandria Radford found that listing one’s race as “Hispanic” instead of ‘White” increased the likelihood of being admitted by the same amount as scoring an extra 130 points on the SAT. Compared to Asians, the study found, Hispanics receive a 240-point advantage.
Has this played out in states that have already passed Dream Acts? California, which has had a Dream Act since 2001, would seem immune due to a state law forbidding universities from using race as a factor in admissions.
Unless it’s used for Hispanic applicants, even if they’re not U.S. citizens.
……Back in Maryland, Purtilo said that one reason he is speaking out about his university’s practices is that he feels they are unfair to U.S. citizens.
“Too bad for the very well prepared student, a U.S. citizen and taxpayer in this state, whose parents might once have thought their kids should have a shot at the flagship campus,” he said.
Dream Act supporters question what is wrong with applying the same policies that apply to citizens – even if it’s affirmative action – to undocumented students. And Torres notes that many undocumented immigrants, despite being in the country illegally, do pay taxes.
“[Despite being undocumented] the parents are working anyway — and we actually help those parents have a tax ID number, so they can pay taxes.
I have a DREAM, too. I want to live—free gratis— in a big hacienda at an exclusive Mexican resort. Cabo San Lucas would be nice.
I want the Mexican government to feed and clothe me, pay my bills, and give me a house keeper and a landscaper to maintain the property. I also want the Mexican government to give me a sizable payment each month—in dollars, not pesos— so I can splurge for all of the family members I plan on inviting. That would be fair exchange for all of my tax money that I’ve paid for their unearned benefits.
Or I can give one of those illegal alien apologists a taste of their own “open borders” medicine.
In case that doesn’t work out, I want my government to enforce our immigration laws for a change, and maybe even make them comparable to Mexican immigration laws,which are a hell of a lot tougher.
In the meantime, there’s a petition set up for Maryland residents to let the Governor know how they feel: http://mdpetitions.com/
The average American citizen works and saves to put their kids through college, and they also pay taxes. And some of that tax money goes to illegal aliens who have NO RIGHT to be here. It takes a special kind of shitbag to sneak into another country and take tax dollars they don’t deserve.
We already have millions of freeloaders in the country, the last thing we need to do is import more of them.
