Texas Public School Openly Inviting Illegal Aliens to College Vocational Night for Hispanics
Ben Barrack ^ | 12/01/11 | Ben Barrack

Posted on 12/01/2011 1:35:30 PM PST by Ben Barrack

The Temple Independent School District (TISD), near Fort Hood, recently sent home flyers with children. The flyers were promoting 'College Vocational Night for Hispanics' and even informed people not to allow concerns about 'Residency Issues' to deter them from coming. Basically, illegal aliens are being invited to the event. For good measure, each attendee will receive one food voucher per family per month.

Initially, your outrage might be directed at the school district (mine was) but remember, our Governor here in Texas (Rick Perry) signed legislation that made it perfectly legal for illegal aliens to attend Texas colleges at in-state tuition rates.

The quintessential example of what's wrong with Rick Perry is on display in Temple, TX:


TOPICS: Society
KEYWORDS: aliens; amnesty; immigration; invasion; laraza; larazaricky; publicschools; rickperry; texas
Click on the link to see the flyer and note that illegal aliens are encouraged to attend while also being informed they will receive monthly food vouchers for doing so.

This is legit. I know exactly where it came from.

If you know of what you speak then you also know that it isn’t just that simple. There are many qualifications to obtaining in state tuition rates.

Vincente Fox's preferred candidate.

Not surprising at all.

My point is that illegal aliens are legally allowed to attend college vocational night because illegals are allowed to go to college in Texas

Lets not forget that the SCOTUS *made* Texas educate ALL children in the state.

Connect this to Perry seems disjointed considering the in-state tuition for children for illegal immigrants was nearly unanimously supported by the Texas Leg.

Sounds as if you agree with the one Texan House member who opposed this.

When the issue came before the legislature in 2001, the House (which at the time had a 78-72 Democratic majority) voted 142-1 in favor. The Senate, with a 16-15 Republican majority, voted 27-3 to pass it. Then, Republican Governor Rick Perry signed the bill into law."

Sounds as if Texans knew what they wanted…

The final version of the bill received even stronger Republican backing in the House, with 64 Republicans joining 66 Democrats to vote yes (130 total) versus only two dissenting votes (both Republicans). In the vote on the original version of HB 1403 on April 23, 67 Republicans joined 75 Democrats to approve the bill, with one Republican voting no. Ten years later, 23 of the 64 Republicans (along with two Democrats who would later switch to the Republican Party) who voted yea on the final version of the bill continued in office, as did two Republicans who voted for the bill on April 23 but were absent on May 24.

illegals are allowed to go to college in Texas

Illegals are allowed to go to college in the entire country. That's not a decision left up to the states.

I guess so.

I also would have agreed with Perry if he’d have vetoed it.

And a consequence is that the TISD is facilitating illegal behavior by harboring known illegals.

Like it or not, the in-state tuition law helps facilitate interest on the part of illegals to attend these events.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

So?....Is there any reason a state can't make the following laws:

** Do as Alabama has done. Require valid birth certificates and social security numbers ( but still allow those who do not have them to attend school.)

** Landlords do an e-verify on all tenants and can only rent to legal residents and citizens. ( That effects who attends the state's socialist K-12, colleges, and universities.

** Make transfer of deeds of homes and business property only to legal residents and citizens . ( Again that will help assure that only legal residents and citizens attend the state's socialist K-12, colleges, and universities.

** Require proof of legal residency or citizenship to receive any state welfare benefits or free school lunches.

** Require that car and trucks are only registered in the state to legal residents and citizens.

Good points all.

Let’s also not forget that Perry said Arizona’s SB 1070 “would note be right for Texas.”

At minimum, Perry’s lack of leadership is responsible for this absurd reality to some degree. Period.

All but one legislator voted for this bill. It is the business of the people of the State of Texas and this is what they wanted. Get over it.

Again, (for those of you who don't seem to get it) the FEDGOV is fighting all these state mandated laws tooth and nail.

We can pass all the laws we want but, until there are some radical changes, immigration is a FEDERAL matter.

It was signed in 2001. When did you decide it upset you?

Wow, their getting free food too! Where is the money coming from, I wonder? I think these hispandering programs are all being funded by the federal government and then funneled to the various states.

I would like to see a non-hispanic person show up and ask for a food voucher. If they were refused, that would be discrimination—lawsuit.

So your legislature is a nest of traitors. Time to throw them out.

I wonder if Rick Perry would continue to fight the states tooth and nail if he were president? Would he say that Arizona, Alabama etc. were *heartless*?
