The President of the University of California system, Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano, has announced a $5 million subsidy for illegal aliens on campus. She of course did not use the legally precise term, “illegal aliens.” She used “undocumented students.”
The money will be used to fund student services, work-study programs, and for loans.
We read that “Napolitano encouraged campuses to consult with student leaders and organizations as they develop their plans. Though the allocation was recently announced, some students on campus have already been involved in system-wide discussions regarding the funds.”
Immediately, an illegal alien complained. The money used for loans is not really aid.
Sophomore Ivan Villasenor Madriz, an undocumented student, spoke with representatives from the UC Office of the President and other undocumented student representatives across the UC campuses in a conference call the evening of Dec. 18.
Madriz said the students raised concerns about the use of the funds for loans rather than other types of aid such as grants and work-study. He said loans should not be considered “aid” because they are only increasing student debt and putting more pressure on students.
“The loans that are given out are making one hole to fill another,” he said. “It defeats the purpose of so-called ‘financial aid.’ ”
Activist group BAMN shares similar sentiments. David Douglass, a UC Berkeley BAMN leader, said the UC Regents should call for a Federal Dream Act.
“We think that the 5 million dollars will have an impact,” Douglass said in an email, “if the money goes directly into the pockets of undocumented students.”
These students are here illegally. They are getting on board the government’s gravy train. Here is their position: “We don’t need no stinking loans.”
There are millions of other would-be illegal aliens who want to come to America to cash in on government money. Liberals love to tax citizens to give money away to illegal aliens. They will continue to do this for as a long as they are elected to office. That is likely to be a long time in California.
