Unfortunately, I am not making this up. Prescott College in Prescott, Arizona has just announced it will be adding a $30 fee to all student tuition costs. This is in addition to the $28,000 current cost of tuition.
Scholarship for illegals
The purpose of this fee is to start a scholarship program for illegal immigrants. Why don’t they just call it an “illegal scholarship”? Therefore, illegal immigrants will attend a college which is out of reach for many Arizona legal citizens.
Backers of this plan say they want #Education to be available to groups of students not currently able to attend college. They also claim it is for social justice. In order to not offend, you must now say “unauthorized immigration” instead of “illegal immigration”. The backers also want to change the perception that Arizona is anti-immigration.
Legal immigrants not eligible
The application process is rather depressing in my opinion. In order to apply you cannot be a legal permanent resident. Also, you must not possess a green card, visa, or other legal documentation. You will qualify even if you are set for deferred removal action under federal immigration law!
Grandkids can’t afford college
In other words if my grandkids can’t afford college, they can’t get a scholarship in Prescott, because they were born in America.
Right now illegal immigrants are a huge problem in Arizona. They get into ER before me and they get treated for free. They drive cars without insurance and cause my rates to go up.
Illegals take many jobs away from legal uneducated workers trying to support their families. I guess, though, if this college scholarship works out they can take better jobs away from other legal residents. I bet the lawyers stop this before illegals get a scholarship to law school.
What were they thinking?
What is this college thinking? Have they not learned anything in Arizona? People all across the country want a wall to keep illegals from entering the United States. They're worried about crime, drugs, and terrorists.
Remember the terrorists learning to fly in the U.S. so they could fly planes into the New York Towers? Now they could go to Prescott College and learn anything they need to blow up whatever they desire.
In case you haven’t figured it out, I think this is the most ridiculous idea I’ve heard in years.
We need a strong safe USA. We need to eliminate terrorists. I want my children and grandchildren to have a future with jobs and prosperity.
I really don’t blame the illegal immigrants, why wouldn’t they come here? They get better deals than I do and I was born here.
