Stand With Arizona
Party and ideological divisions are roiling America. Battles over the budget, taxes, jobs and energy have crippled Washington. But there is one issue that people across the political spectrum agree on: they oppose giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens.
According to the latest poll numbers, 69% of Americans oppose subsidizing those here illegally with in-state tuitions rates. 73% of Republicans oppose it - as one would expect. An even stronger 74% of Independents oppose it. But the same position resonates across ideological and ethnic lines too. 58% of Democrats oppose it too, as do an overwhelming 90% of Black Americans.
And contrary to media propaganda, even HISPANICS are "heartless", opposing in-state tuition for illegals, by 54%-28%.
So at tonight's debate, will "Ricky La Raza" Perry finally back down from the position that has derailed his campaign?
Or will he continue to stand with Gov. Jerry Brown - and against America?
I see you are here again doing your usual smears. You know nothing about TX or the people who live there.
That is a federal responsibility. Why don’t you blame your boy Obama?
I never had heard about this until the debates started. Perry’s “heartless” comment was just plain stupid. He should have explained why the decision was made to do this.
The biggest issue I have with it is that it discriminates against US citizens that live outside of Texas. Why on earth should a US citizen in Oklahoma have to pay more to go to a school in Texas than a child of illegal alien living in Texas? That just does not seem fair to me.
Foreign nationals (including high school students) residing in the U.S. illegally are generally NOT eligible to adjustment to legal permanent resident status, much less citizenship.
They're pinning their hopes on Perry sneaking into the White House and legalizing them all.
Was trying to get illegal in there one more time since perry has no concept of illegal is illegal.
“The biggest issue I have with it is that it discriminates against US citizens that live outside of Texas. Why on earth should a US citizen in Oklahoma have to pay more to go to a school in Texas than a child of illegal alien living in Texas? That just does not seem fair to me.”
You know, you’re right. Everyone is right about this issue. There is no way to explain what is right about it. Everyone can ask why, but no one says what do you do with the kid who has never lived in Mexico and has graduated from our school system.? You send them back to where? And is that only for Mexicans or do we include Chinese and Russians and
Arabs who over-stay their visas? And is it just Texas because we have a governor who can’t debate or do we include Georgia and California? How did Arizona get so messed up? I sure don’t know what the answer is. Our governors tend to have strong Christian backgrounds. I feel we are in a no win situation because the federal government failed to enforce immigration laws. Our federal government failed to protect and defend our borders. It is not a problem that just popped up during the Bush and
Perry administrations. Perry responded as though he was attacked. He was. Being a Texas A&M grad, he should have just answered “no excuses, sir.”
“They’re pinning their hopes on Perry.....”
Oh. That’s good.
You know when the last candidate is left standing, everyone will hate his/her guts for not being perfect...and they’ll stay home and order Obama homecoming flowers.
This is all about giving a free ride to illegals and other minorities, while white middle class kids become indentured servants to the federal government.
That is the plan.
Don’t let your kids get into student loan debt.
Stop funding the liberal elite certification scam.
The excessive fees colleges require go to fund those “others” “free” education, while the middle class goes into debt.
Personally, I’m perfectly willing to go vote for a ham sandwich over Zero and I will do so if I have to.
But the issue with respect to Perry is far more than an imperfection in my opinion, it’s an issue that seriously puts at risk the very ability of our Constitutional tradition of limited government and free markets to survive, which has already been greatly eroded.
It actually says "Ricky La Raza", which certainly rolls more nicely off the tongue. But 'insulting'? Hardly. Here is Ricky with his buddies at the La Raza luncheon having a good old time.
No one was asked at the NH debate about illegals,borders, In state tuition. Ca. of course just passed this and it stinks to high heaven. Ca. is leading the way to pure national destruction. Liberalism is such a sick ideology that one wonders if they would surrender to Iran after we found out today about their cartel outrage and then they will soon get nukes. What then libs? Instate tuition for terrorists?????
