There’s no special handshake. No code word. But for one secret group on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, identification papers – or, rather, a lack thereof – are a common denomination.

The UW’s student organization the Purple Group is for students, known as "dreamers," who came to the country illegally, often as young children.

This type of student group has become more common on college campuses in the past decade, although some groups remain more hidden than others.

For undocumented students, high school dropout rates are high. Only a small percentage make it to college. Many come from low-income families, making it a struggle for them to keep up with tuition and graduate on time.

In Europe, there is no comparable campaign in the media and politics to give amnesty to illegals. Media coverage of illegals tends to focus on the problems they cause. Politicians, even on the left, generally take a harder line on illegals than most Republicans do, at least in word if not deed.

Of course they will. The GOPe will decide that it’s not fair and that we need twenty million Chinese dreamers to be truly global.

In 2012, the Obama administration created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which offers temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. This year, Washington also became the fourth state where undocumented students qualify for taxpayer-funded college aid.

Expensive for taxpayers.

OTOH, if kids come in as two-year-olds, grow up speaking English, get excellent grades, stay out of trouble, behave like model citizens, it's really hard to say no when it comes to education, as none of the circumstances of being "illegal" are their fault. .

And on the OTHER other hand, this certainly encourages illegals to get their kids over our borders and into our schools.

And on the OTHER other other hand, why can't these countries educate their own kids? Would it be cheaper for us to send them aid in the form of teachers, books and school buildings?

Ah, in the land of liberals one must show proof that they have purchased health insurance, but not proof that they are in the country legally.

It’s just about time to declare war on liberals.
