Oregon Dems n RINOS pass college help for illegals (up to $14,000USD per year) this is such a fraud on taxpayers, citizens and legal aliens.
The Oregon House voted 38-18 to grant in-state tuition rates to undocumented Oregon high school graduates. The bill now goes to the Senate.
House Bill 2787 would grant in-state tuition for undocumented students who have attended school in the country for at least five years; studied at an Oregon high school for at least three years, and graduated; and show intention to become a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
Yet every time I have talked with ICE they tell me that absent a change in federal law, And excepting cases of political asylum an illegal who is in our country illegally cannot legalize their status without first returning home and getting in line with everyone else.
So...how does someone "show they intend ..." When it's not legally possible
Thus, a reporter might ask, is this essentially illegal requirement of the law simply inserted to give an air of legitimacy to the law, with the authors intending that the state will NEVER actually enforce this provision?
I'd ask you...if it was a republican bill with such an openly fraudulent provision ...wouldn't you call it into question?
And here's the real significance of this...
The illegals you so sympathetically portray in the paper (like the long term illegal and union official who broke the law)
WHEN THEY GET THAT DEGREE AND STILL HAVE NO SSN NUMBER...WHAT GOOD IS THAT DEGREE WHEN THE LAW SAYS THEY CAN'T LEGALLY WORK IN THIS COUNTRY
It's strange that the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper would pillory any american who worked a job with fraudulent credentials yet support the right of 100,000+ oregon illegals to do the same
