Illegal Immigrants Complain They Get Student Loans Instead of Grants
College Fix ^ | January 3, 2014

Posted on 01/07/2014 9:55:26 AM PST by Zakeet

Some students in the country illegally have complained that the millions of dollars the University of California system recently pledged to help them earn a college degree will come by way of student loans instead of grants.

As UC officials discuss specifics on how the $5 million UC President Janet Napolitano recently budgeted to support undocumented students will be allocated – much of which will go to student loan programs, it’s been decided - some student activists have bemoaned that it’s not fair to strap stressed out, disadvantaged students in the country illegally with college debt.

“We think that the 5 million dollars will have an impact if the money goes directly into the pockets of undocumented students,” By Any Means Necessary campus activist group leader David Douglass told The Daily Californian in an email.

If they voted Republican, the government would have thrown them out a very long time ago....

Who is going to find them when they have to pay anyway.
Plus most of them and their families are working gray areas not paying taxes and at the same time manage to find their way onto the dole.

I feel nothing for their complaints because they do not follow our laws and do nothing like others have to come here legally.
They ever falsify papers and letters stating status here that they never had in order to stay and it is all fraud.

Secure the border.

Maybe they should return to their homeland and apply for grants from their universities.

If they are in the country illegally, why are they even allowed to enroll in our colleges and universities in the first place?

Maybe it's to keep them occupied so they don't try driving without a license or insurance.

Thta is what I was thinking. If they never pay it back, it is pretty much a grant.

They don’t pay back the loans, or pay off their interest free mortgages that they moved onto from public housing. They get in state tuition plus scholarships for being Hispanic and being foreigners, and what the can’t borrow, be given or cheat on, they steal.

What’s to stop them from getting the student LOANS, getting their degrees and then leave the country to pursue their new careers in whatever their major was?

They don’t have to repay until graduation, so in effect it is a grant.

This isn’t about grants vs. loans. It’s about getting dinero to fund more radical agendas up front...................

Only with debt will illegals be truly indebted to democrats. Like Jesse Jackson said (paraphrasing) push as much student loan money as you can...then we will forgive the loans and we will have their vote.

Not just illegals either.

Illegals in Ca get FAFSA money and have been for a few years. Many parents were complaining their legal children got way less than they did before. One guy made less money than ever before and his child almost got nothing. It was around 5 years ago when they added illegals to FAFSA.

The universities just raise their prices to absorb whatever government aid is available anyway. Liberals who make an affluent living from the higher ed system are the actual beneficiaries. Funny how that happens.

That photo wants to bum me out/anger me, but in it I see the attitude of all mankind towards The Lord. Basically a general ingratitude born of unbelief. Putting one’s faith in Christ is a BEGINNING of learning gratitude, but I’d say we’re so packed down with pride that even then our remaining years are a continual revelation of our bottomless NEED of Him.

Good thing He has unlimited patience (per Paul).

I have no clue.

One thing I do know is that I look forward to the day that the elite end up getting their spud exposed to the illegal aliens and have to deal with the horrors that normal citizenry deal with now every day.

Illegal Aliens can go to their home countries and ask them for free college

Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti American Bigotry. Any thing other than deportation is treason

In addition to the felonies most have committed by: false ID, false or stolen social security numbers, benefit fraud, tax evasion, fraudulent tax returns, skipping out on hospital bills (etc), the kind of stuff that the Equal Protection Clause is supposed to prevent (unequal application of Laws) AND being here illegally in the first place, the NON COMPLIANCE WITH THE SELECTIVE SERVICE LAW PREVENTS STUDENT LOANS (Federal FAFSA), FEDERAL JOBS AND BENEFITS.

I am ANGRY and Reviled/Repulsed by the Illegal Immigrant lobby. American citizen’s rights are being trampled on.

Third Worlders do things this way.

They always push the mark as far as they can. In their societies, whatever you can take...is yours.

If the other guy is weak and rolls over for you...you are the strong one, and deserve what he has.
