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