A sovereign Constitutional Republic has borders to be secured and a rule of law that’s supposed to be followed. ~ Allen West
As Written By Allen B. West:
How does the saying go, “we’ve gone from the sublime to the ridiculous?” We shared here the story about the SCOTUS unanimous decision — 8 to 0 — that the construction of congressional districts should be based on total population rather than representation of eligible citizens. Well, to be honest, I’m not head over heels about “eligible voters” because those who haven’t reached voting age, if they are Americans citizens, natural or legalized, do deserve representation.
However, it does concern me that we could be on the path of allowing the consideration of those here illegally in the development of congressional representation districts. Heck, we already have American cities granting sanctuary to those here illegally — I know, the progressive socialist left deems them “undocumented workers.”
A sovereign Constitutional Republic has borders to be secured and a rule of law that’s supposed to be followed. However there’s a big group of people who don’t believe that, made up of violators and enablers. And now we have an even more ridiculous effort relating to the disregard of those in America illegally.
As reported by the New York Post, “A private college in Arizona is charging students a fee to fund a scholarship for illegal immigrants, a controversial move which supporters say gives a hand to those who need it but which anti-illegal immigration advocates call irresponsible.
Prescott College is tacking a $30 annual fee onto its $28,000 annual tuition to establish an annual scholarship for “undocumented” students, as part of a policy first proposed by students and faculty from the undergraduate and Social Justice and Human Rights Master of Arts divisions. While students can opt out of paying the fee, if they do nothing, it will be automatically imposed. Backers say it helps reverse what they call Arizona’s reputation as a “national example of discriminatory politics.”
“I am proud that our students take on the role of scholar activists,” said school President John Flicker, adding that the university is committed to “broaden access to higher education for a diverse group of students” and “mobilize its resources towards social justice.”
Supporters note that illegal immigrants are allowed to attend state and private colleges in Arizona, but in most cases cannot legally work or receive government grants or loans.
Making legal residents enrolled at the school pay for illegal immigrants’ education is a slap in the face to a generation already facing its post-college years saddled with enormous debt, said Andrew Kloster, legal Fellow for the Center for Legal & Judicial Studies at Heritage Foundation.”
Let me be clear, this is a private institution. If they’re not receiving any federal funding, they’re free to make any lunatic decisions they wish. In the free market system, it’s simple: students don’t have to attend that college. They can refuse to participate in the fee as it appears stated. As I once heard an Army Senior NCO state, “you can’t fix stupid,” And yes, I do consider this a stupid idea.
Imagine any other country where a private institution charged a fee for students in the country illegally. The real question is not about the amount — $30 — but rather the principle. If I were a parent of a student attending Prescott College, I would object, and withdraw my child. The issue …….
