As many hard-working American families are doing everything they can to help pay for their children’s college tuition, a top liberal university has established a new program awarding illegal immigrants tens of millions of dollars.
The University of California announced it created a $25.2 million school-sanctioned assistance package to help illegal aliens pay for their education.
Janet Napolitano, who serves as the president of the university, made it clear she’s steadfastly determined to cultivate efforts to use school funding to ensure illegal immigrants will have their college tuition paid for at the school.
“We are committed to continuing a path forward for undocumented students at the University of California,” Napolitano said. “This funding will further strengthen the university’s undocumented student initiative, and help ensure that these students receive the support and resources they need to succeed.”
But she’s more concerned with supporting illegals than hard-working, legal American families.
The package will be disbursed to several different university-affiliated groups, with $8.4 million going into programs who work to ensure illegals are given safe havens on campus.
The “DREAM Loan Program” will receive $5 million for the next three years. The school said it will allocate $2.5 million to fund fellowships and other financial support initiatives, including programs that pay for illegal aliens textbooks and school supplies.
In addition, the university will give UC’s “Undocumented Legal Services Center” $900,000, which will be used to provide legal advice and assistance to illegal immigrants.
“From the earliest days of her presidency, Janet Napolitano has acted to ensure that our undocumented students are on equal footing with others seeking to fulfill their aspirations at UC campuses,” said UC Board of Regents Chairman Monica Lozano. “These efforts have made the University of California a leader among universities across the nation in ensuring academic opportunity for undocumented college students.”
This is absolutely pathetic, but it underscores how Democrats prioritize illegals over Americans.
While American families across the country are doing everything they can to pay for their children’s college tuition, liberals are breaking the law to give illegals funding to go to school in the U.S.
The Justice Department has every right to launch a full investigation into this disturbing situation, and every single school official involved in this who broke the law should be held accountable.
A vast majority of Americans would agree that legal citizens should always be prioritized over illegal aliens.
