|It's no secret that the Senate immigration bill rewards 12-20 million illegal aliens with immediate amnesty. What is less well known is that the bill also allows illegal aliens to receive in-state tuition rates at public universities, discriminating against U.S. citizens from out of state and law-abiding foreign students. |
These provisions are buried deep in the Senate bill. They are part of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act section.
The DREAM Act is a nightmare. It repeals a 1996 federal law that prohibits any state from offering in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, unless the state also offers in-state tuition rates to all U.S. citizens. On top of that, the DREAM Act offers a fast track to U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens who attend college.
That's right! You read it correctly - YOU are funding the college tuitions of illegal aliens with your hardearned tax dollars. Click here for the full story. It's a must read.
I'm truly happy that many of you jumped on the bandwagon and contacted your Senators. It is imperative that you do it one more time. (H/T: Laura Ingraham's site
Tell them you do not support the Senate's "bipartisan immigration reform bill." Tell them you will not vote to reelect anyone who ties the issues of border enforcement and legalization together in one bill!
Border enforcement first!
When we as Americans verify over a number of years that this has been done, we can consider plans for those who have lived here illegally for several years.
