RICHMOND It is the American motto the premise the country takes pride in: If you work hard, you can accomplish anything, be anything. But for some who consider themselves Americans, the rule does not apply.
Undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children face an obstacle when trying to accomplish their educational goals. When they graduate from high school, they must pay out-of-state tuition at Virginias public colleges and universities a difficult feat since they usually dont qualify for financial aid programs either.
It becomes part of the expectation for young immigrants that they wont be able to go to college, said Robert G. Templin Jr., president of Northern Virginia Community College.
Six bills two in the Senate and four in the House seek to change Virginia law so that undocumented immigrants meeting certain criteria would be able to pay in-state college tuition.
If these bills are passed, it would be a positive impact on the Hispanic community, said Edgar Aranda-Yanoc, chairman of the Virginia Coalition of Latino Organizations. It would allow immigrants who came to this country to pursue a higher education.
The state legislation parallels a federal proposal called the DREAM Act, an acronym for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors.

Illegals are government growth hormone.
if a state that takes federal funds for ANYTHING, provides funds for illegals to attend its schools...
then that state is forcing ALL OTHER STATES to pay for the education for illegals as well, as we cannot opt-out of paying into the fed (...)
Their only choices will be out of state schools, or far more expensive private schools.
The members of the legislature who have made this anti-American and anti-Virginian proposal should be taken out and horsewhipped ~ now, will that be done? That's up to the Speaker of the House here ~ and it has been done before.

When free money, food stamps, health care and housing are just not enough.
Go there, learn in your own language and help that country prosper.
Isn’t the Obama administrations phasing-out of 287(g) in Virginia claiming it cost to much money to run the program ?
And there it is....they CONSIDER themselves Americans, so we need to be compassionate and tolerant and go along with their FEELINGS, even if it helps to seal the death of the Republic.
I remember when I used to be proud to be a Virginian.

...no Dean Dipshi&. Not for “immigrants”. For illegal aliens. As usual, most of the dumbasses in this country will agree with the community college prez.
“undocumented immigrants” BS!
Foreigners present illegally.
It's downright amazing how Obama and vote-crazed politicians can kneel in obeisance, suck-up for latino votes, at the same time they're "defending" the US Constitution (snix).
Law-abiding Americans must demand answers to these penetrating questions.
(1) Why are illegal lawbreakers given the protection of: (a) federal and state govts, (b) the Obama Admin, (c) the DOJ, (d) the US Congress, (e) other govt officials/workers/agencies and institutions?
(2) Are Obama and Virgina politicans acting on orders from foreign governments?
(3) Why was an illegal lawbreaker (a registered sex offender) given a job in US Senator Menendez's office ---- and is now being offered more protections and rights than law-abiding Americans?
(4) What are the penalties imposed on US and state govt officials for using tax-paid govt offices, govt resources, and govt authority, to aid and abet wrongdoing---and why are they not being mobilized?
AS TADSLOS INSIGHTFULLY POSTED:
Americans have the foreign government of Mexico (and its co-conspirators in the Third World), that continually and relentlesly meddle in the internal affairs of the US----and BOTH vote-crazed political parties----- and ALL three branches of our government---- enable and actively participate in the process. Mexico, however, would NEVER cede its sovereignty to the US - but they sure dont mind taking our foreign aid dollars. Mexico is a giant leech, sucking us dry.
Is Mexico our friend or foe? During World War II, Mexico was the site of pro-German activity while US soldiers were being slaughtered by the German war machine and innocent Jews were sent to Germanm death camps. US secret agents found supplies of high test aviation gas hidden by the German high command in Baja California....a Mexican outpost.
Mexico and the Third World are pushing north at a furious pace----visions of foreign aid tax dollars dancing in their heads. These are more of their Fifth Column pressure groups acting on orders from their homelands.
The Mexican government adopts one, very smooth, tone when speaking to its patsies in America---vote-crazed US pols---- and another, very militant, tone when speaking to its own people about its ruthlessness in pursuing its own national interest at the expense of ours.
As long as vote-crazed politicans continue to suck-up to hyphenates to get re/elected, this scam will continue.
More proof Mexico has NEVER been our friend!
Mexicans sign petition for U.S. gun control
This is unprecedented---a two-bit foreign govt aiding and abetting in undermining the constitutional freedoms of Americans and subverting the national security of a sovereign govt.
Americans have no govt defending their interersts----but every invader on our shores has TWO govts defending their interests---(1) vote-crazed pols in our govt, and, (2) Mexico (and Third World co-conspirators egging on the rest of the hyphenate invaders).
There's plenty of collusion and conspiracy going on and lots of secrecy. This must be stopped.
The Founders escaped foreign domination and structured the new American govt with safeguards to keep Americans free and safe from foreign domination.
All of the laws and legal measures are there but they are not being employed.
If doing such a thing is acceptable in a "red, conservative" state like Texas, why not a purple state like Virginia? /s
