Illegal Alien Gets a Free Education

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Short of buying a house, paying for college is the number one expense any American will incur in our lifetimes. And today some Ivy League and specialty universities can run well above what the average home might cost.

I have a personal friend whose son is attending one of these universities which cater to a special type of science and engineering for which the tab is around $70,000 per year. This poor kid will be paying off his student loans until he retires. This may be a slight exaggeration, but only slight.

Sure, he was able to apply for and receive some assistance in the form of grants through the school, but it doesn’t amount to much, relative to the overall expense.

So when I read this, I about fell out of my seat. CNS reports that, “Sarah Espinoza Salamanca found it hard to find money for college after graduating from North Hollywood high school in Southern California. She was brought to the state illegally from Mexico by her parents when she was four, but following a free K-12 education, she faced paying tuition for college – something she could not afford.” read more

It’s Good to Be Illegal

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Illegal immigrant children have it made in America. They get free housing, food, medical care and even free education. And for the illegals at a certain California public university, they get their very own private graduation.

Yes, for 25 lucky winners of life’s lottery, San Francisco State University (SFSU) “hosted a special graduation ceremony.”
The celebration event consisted of the aforementioned 25 illegal alien students as well as 300 guests.

They called it the first annual “Beyond Borders Graduation.” At the ceremony this poignant message was offered up: “And I hope that you know how much you are loved and how much sacrifice went to having you here and that no piece of paper, no piece of paper, not even that diploma, can stop you from being your fullest possible self.” That message was offered up by filmmaker and activist Jose Antonio Vargas.

Yes Jose, no piece of paper could stop them – certainly not a valid birth certificate, Social Security number or driver’s license.

Yet not everyone was so thrilled with the “Beyond Borders Graduation.” “Niike Andino, a minority student at SFSU, told Campus Reform in an interview that the ceremony could only perpetuate illegal activity. People complain and protest all the time [about the rising cost of tuition], but then you have situations like this where undocumented students have their own ceremonies. The student government needs to wake up.” read more

Maybe Now You Will Close the Border Mr. President

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Who’d have figured that the modern day plague (potentially) may be the cure for illegal immigration?

For years conservatives have struggled against the left and the Chamber of Commerce prostitutes, the establishment Republicans, to stop or at least stem the tide of illegals – to close the border.

No matter what the argument for closing the border, there were always politicians and interest groups standing in the way, trying to tell us what a great deal it will be – what a boon to our economy.

Pleas of stopping drug cartels, gangs and terrorists fall on deaf ears. Nothing can stop the flood.

But now we’re faced with an enemy we can’t see – an enemy we can’t arrest, detain or deport.

Despite the government and their dimwitted accomplices in the media, Ebola is for real and it’s already here. It may be isolated – it may not. read more

Democrats New Trophy Wife

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Attorney A J Delgado  wrote:

“Democrats have built a brand as the party willing to stand up for black Americans, but the amnesty push shows what a false promise that was. The message to black voters is: ‘Yes, your ancestors endured unimaginable hardships and helped build this country, and we said we’d help you out. But now we have a new trophy wife.’ Meanwhile, the harm to African Americans is not limited to reduced wages, greater competition for jobs, and declining household incomes – now even the black history of suffering is being diluted. Liberal columnist and CNN pundit Sally Kohn penned a column last week arguing that the term ‘illegal immigrant’ is the same as the N-word.”

Last I checked, blacks were originally forced to come to America. They did not receive a Mexican visitor card, food, water and medical care on there way to this country, as are Central American illegals.

Black citizens have begun confronting illegal immigration advocate groups, frustrated and confused why they are being thrown under the bus in favor of this new “protected class”.

One frustrated young black man, speaking to an immigrant activist, said: read more
