While many American families are doing everything imaginable to help pay for their children’s college tuition, a liberal college plans to give millions of dollars to at least a thousand illegals.
Southern New Hampshire University and two other liberal organizations created a program that will give $20 million in scholarships to beneficiaries of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
SNHU President Paul LeBlanc said the school is trying to give people “hope.” Apparently, he is more concerned with helping illegals achieve their dreams than hard-working Americans.
“As an institution of higher education, we are in the business of hope,” LeBlanc said. “We have hundreds of thousands of young people who have known no country but the U.S., but that are denied the financial support that gives them access to higher education.”
Despite the group’s giddy liberal-speak, the Department of Education clearly states that “undocumented students” are not eligible for federal financial aid.
It is against the law to give non-citizens federal funding for school, but they aren’t worried about that.
The leftist project will provide illegal students the opportunity to “develop valuable skills and knowledge by working on creative real-world projects,” and earn several degrees “by mastering defined skills/competencies, setting your pace, and accelerating through material you already know.”
Don Graham, the Co-Founder of TheDream.US, praised the project as being able to serve Dreamers who can’t afford college.
This is absolutely pathetic, and it reaffirms how democrats continue to prioritize illegals over Americans.
As families are doing everything they can to send their children to college, left-wing schools like these are breaking the law to ensure illegals receive a free education in a country they aren’t legally allowed to be in.
Americans are sick and tired of democrats prioritizing illegals. This must be fully investigated as it clearly violates the law.
