How Illegals Get Free College Education and Citizens Don't

Heads up to parents who have children who hope to attend the University of Minnesota. The University of Minnesota’s "Immigration Response Team" is busy working on a new scholarship program. But it's not for Dreamers born in America or here legally. It's only for illegal aliens born in other countries. So, not only will illegal aliens in Minnesota continue to qualify for in-state tuition rates at the U of M, they will also get full scholarships!
The new scholarship program, called The Dream Fund, will provide financial assistance to illegal aliens to cover their housing, groceries, books, medical and dental care, and other extenuating circumstances.
“The University of Minnesota, like a lot of other publicly funded universities, seems to place a higher priority on the academic dreams of people who are in the country illegally than they do on the academic dreams of citizens and legal immigrants. Public funding for higher education is a zero-sum game. When an illegal alien is admitted to the University of Minnesota and given huge subsidies, there is another student somewhere in Minnesota who isn’t going to get in. Money that is allocated to fund illegal aliens is money that is unavailable to other American students who need it.
Moreover, these policies create a magnet for illegal immigration. When states like Minnesota offer hefty college subsidies to illegals, it is an incentive for more people to break the law. The University of Minnesota’s Dream Fund is modeled after similar programs at the University of Utah, Western Michigan University, and University of Nebraska. The pressure is being created by a well-funded and well-organized advocacy network on behalf of illegal aliens.”
Twenty states offer in-state tuition to unauthorized immigrant students, 16 by state legislative action and four by state university systems. Sixteen state legislatures—California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington—enacted laws to allow in-state tuition benefits for certain unauthorized immigrant students.
