Since when was a degree needed to pick lettuce?
"Back where I come from we have Universities, seats of great learning where men go to become great thinkers, and when they come out they think deep thoughts, and with no more brains than you have. But, they have one thing you haven't got: A Diploma."

Like it or lump it, if these people are going to stay here, then you must mainstream them into US society; otherwise you’ll have a Quebec situation.

That's the sort of remarkable ignorance that has turned southern California into a Mexican territory. American culture gets displaced by the huge numbers bringing in their own culture, which they aren't interested in giving up.

The war is coming.

When? I have been predicting that for several years now. What will be the tipping point? Will there ever be a point where the "war" begins? Or we all just too complacent?

Thank you for the information.

Often times the argument is that people are turned down for admission because of overcrowding, and that if citizens are being held out of college so illegals can get in, that is wrong. I agree with that argument as well, and think the federal government should clarify the law to make it clear that states can prioritize admissions by legal status.

I don’t think there are many admission requirements for community college, so hopefully they are not displacing anyone. We allow foreign students to attend our colleges and universities, and I know this isn’t exactly the same thing, but it is similar. They are paying substantial tuition, so it would appear that they are actually contributing in this case rather than draining.

It is frustrating that because the federal government does not do its job in properly controlling immigration and protecting our borders, businesses and colleges become responsible. Admissions to a community college should not be used as an immigration control point. They do not have the resources or expertise to do this well, and it costs all of the other students.

We are the Illegal Aliens.
Do not touch your TV set or Computer.
We control the horizontal.
We control the vertical.
We control your education system.

invaders than little green men?)

Good thing you aren't in The Border Patrol or ICE.
Come up with a great idea like that and try to implement it...
and some Federal Prosecutor will find some way to railroad you!

The “Sullivan Memorandum” is now available in HTML at the following link:

Read this. You all have got to see the hubris of a state government “legal counsel” taking on the airs of a having made a Supreme Court “decision.”It’s short and mind-boggling.

The original locked-up pdf file was intentionally difficult to broadcast via the Internet.

It was sent to the Community College central offices on November 7. Civitas Institute’s news release was never intended to make it public. They expected the Excrement to have already hit the fan before now, and what they released was an Economic Impact study. Little did they know what is fast becoming known as “the Sullivan Memorandum” would bask is the shadows until they put out their news release. Outrageous! For example, in the two of three paragraph “Memo” is the simple declarative: “colleges should immediately begin admitting undocumented individuals” Emphasis in the original!
