Notre Dame to begin accepting illegal immigrants
The Washington Times ^ | 8/23/2013 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 08/23/2013 7:43:01 AM PDT by markomalley

Notre Dame University announced Thursday it will begin admitting illegal immigrants to the school and will provide them with financial aid, saying the move will "strengthen" the student body.

The university had never had an official ban on illegal immigrants but Inside Higher Ed reported the school treated them as international students and required them to have student visas — which effectively served as a bar.

"We will strengthen our incoming class and give deserving young people the chance for a Notre Dame education," Don Bishop, associate vice president for undergraduate enrollment, said in a statement announcing the policy.

The university also said it "is committed to meeting the full demonstrated financial need for all admitted students." Illegal immigrants are not eligible for federal student aid, but the university's announcement signals that Notre Dame would make up the difference between the cost and what the student and his or her family can afford.

Just as Dems want to grow their base, so goes Nutter Dame wanting to expand their football roster to new talent. I’ll be rooting even harder for Stanford this year.

“Notre Dame would make up the difference between the cost and what the student and his or her family can afford.”

in other words, those with heavy student loans would be more burdened now paying for these foreign leeches

Yes, it will strengthen the student body like having BO as a commencement speaker strengthens their standing with God and the Church.

Problem with these people AND the USCCB is that they take their interpretation of social justice way over the line with disregard to both the Catechism and the Constitution of the country to which they reside.

Certainly they disregard, then,, their own school policy as originally intended.

The real problem is that any Catholic parent would send their precious child to such a place which is not beholden to any rule if religion or civics They make it up as they go along. Siding with the destructive

The Homosexual Mafia recently lauded Stanford as one of the 20 friendliest colleges that promote and celebrate their pathological lifestyle.

I won't be rooting for either one.

Notre Dame is a private institution, they can do as they please and considering that the majority of Hispanics are Catholic, it might not be such a bad choice.

What’s the difference between Princess Di and the Farting Irish?
Notre Dame makes it through the tunnel before they’re killed.

Maybe that’s their plan: to use the illegals for sneak plays?

Our (formerly) Catholic universities have no standards in any area now.

Shut ‘em down and let ‘em go the way of Detroit.

I bet ND gets plenty of federal money. How can you allow someone illegally in the country to attend your university. Foreign students must obtain student visas.

"With over $20 billion in funding provided for research and development, universities across the nation are struggling to outline a clear path between stimulus funding, their research projects, and viable job creation. One such case involves the University of Notre Dame.

A report from the South Bend Tribune shows that Notre Dame has been benefitting nicely from federal stimulus money, having been awarded numerous grants worth nearly $35 million. Despite a proclamation from the top White House economic adviser that the term “summer of recovery” refers to construction projects, not employment specifically, the Tribune report states that, “None of the money awarded to Notre Dame went to bricks and mortar.”

It barely went toward creating jobs either. Robert J. Bernhard, vice-president for research at Notre Dame, boasts that, “The stimulus funding has allowed for new hiring, creating the full-time equivalent of about 90 new jobs.” That’s roughly $386,000 per newly minted job. The description of those positions varies widely, ranging from full-time research professors to undergraduates working a few hours a week."

Yep! I believe it! My budding conservative brother in law is one of their linebackers, so that’s my reason. Most of the guys are hard core on the right and pro-capitalists, or so I’m told.

They are illegally here. Why would they adhere to any rule of law or religion? The Latino vote is 72% dem yes even for prez

It’s a terrible idea.

This institution was founded in the Catholic religion. In the end they will have few alumni donors, no religion, no true Catholics and no foundation.

No self respect

If it’s all about money, they’ll fail. They’ll have nothing to offer apart from a less costly state school. It’s why Catholic primary schools ae closing. Nothing to offer

BTW, a Catholic high school just opened here 5 yrs ago. Completely adherent to the spirit of the Faith

First year 20 students, second -anther class of 35, third another 50 then 55 fifth year 68 more. Donations pile in.

If a kid or teacher gets way out of line-gone- too many people spending good money for their children

They’re getting picked up by good schools and the military academies

If they ever focus on money first, they’ll fail like every other Catholic school who tried that Why would people pay for what they can get in public schools

If there are illegals there, they are cetainly not celebrated and revered for so being

It’s bad enough that the kids have to fill in ‘white-non Hispanic (never mind that my parents are combat veterans or that my great grandfather built this place) take our money and give it to the Non whotes’

Hope this is written up in the alum newsletter.

That would be my very last donation to ND if I were an alum. College enrollment is finite — any slot given to an illegal is a slot denied to a legal American citizen.

“If it’s all about money, they’ll fail.”

I don’t think it’s about money. It’s about the strong catholic mores of charity - albeit misguided here.

The local cops should do their duty and arrest the illegal aliens, seize their property and deport them.

Let me guess - they’ll all be enrolled in the “Chicano Studies” program, newly created to cater just to them.

No, they cannot. Being a private institution doesn't give you the privelege or power to aid and abet law-breakers.

I was responding to the comment about this being a good idea due to financial reward

That’s why I said if it’s all about money it’s a bad idea

The catechism of the Catholic Church states that no one living in Zny country should violate sovereignty for the sake of misguided charity or the host country will suffer financially and ultimately be unable to provide for it’s own citizens as well as the noncitizen ii grants

If you ready post, you will know that I said ND and USCCB were not paying attention to their own catechism on this nor to the laws of the host country

Archb Gomez, who is from Mexico, is leading this and th Americans are not guiding them

We can not support all of the illegals, none of whom are obviously attempting to contribute to this country beyond making us learn spanish

The money will run out

I was there to see Ronald Reagan speak at the 1981 commencement and in March of 1988. Since my graduation 25 years ago, I see how they have evolved away from both Catholic tradition and sound judgement. Of late, they have never ceased to disappoint.

always follow the money.

Is there anything illegal in knowingly aiding a lawbreaker?

“Notre Dame would make up the difference between the cost and what the student and his or her family can afford.”

But they would not offer the same to my kids, since they had the misfortune of having legal parents. Nice.

Is this the same way that illegal immigrants have "strengthened" the US southwest by turning what were once normal communities into dirty third world barrios and colonias? I think I'll pass on Notre Dame's version of the strength through joy program.

exactly it will not strengthen the college at all...

my very bright daughter who is a junior at a top 50 catholic school and has a GPA of 3.9 will not even be considering notre dame.

there are some very nice small catholic colleges that are true to church teachings charge less tuition, and provide a better education.

Soon even the prestige associated with the name “Notre Dame” will fade and be meaningless...

They’re listening to the bishops, always a big mistake. Or trying to be first in line when 0bama’s new “ratings” kick in.

That may be logical so far as it goes, but what about the impact of the policy on students who are citizens or legal immigrants with proper student visas? The cost of educating the illegal immigrants will fall involuntarily on the former while the latter will continue to have to bear considerable time and cost burdens to maintain their legal status in the U.S. Meanwhile, the good Jesuit fathers will be throwing their shoulders out patting themselves on the back for so beigh so good and committed to social justice. Again, illegal immigrants are benefiting from having committed a serious crime: unlawfully entering a foreign country. This is wrong is so many ways and it grieves me terribly that my church not only condones this illegal behavior but actively and sanctimoniously encourages it.
