Christie Gives Undocumented
Students Access to In-State Tuition

Townhall, by Amanda Muñoz

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/1/2014 8:12:54 AM

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed landmark legislation at the end of December which allowed the state’s undocumented high school students access to in-state tuition at all public colleges and universities. Under the new legislation, students who graduated from a New Jersey high school where they had been in attendance for at least three years are eligible to receive in-state and in-county rates at state colleges, universities, and community college campuses. “This is what compromise looks like,” the governor said of the bill, deemed the state’s “Dream Act.” Christie signed the original bill with a conditional veto,

I´m trying to figure out the legality of rigging the system to prefer out-of-nation applicants (how the heck do you even apply without "documentation", anyway?) over out-of-state American citizens. I can respect a guy who stands on his principles, even if I disagree with them, so long as they well-reasoned, but this is shameless political pandering vote-grubbing cynicism at its worst.

Understand that the immigration issue is only an issue because the Republican Establishment is pandering to Hispanics, hoping and praying they will be beholden to the Republican Party just like blacks have been reliably for decades for the democrat party.

Everyone knows something has to be done about immigration, it is a real problem. Our problem is that the Republican Establishment´s goal is not to solve the issue. They would start by securing the boarder first if that was the case, but they rather capitalize on issue for political gain.

What Christie is doing in New Jersey is exactly what the Republican Establishment will do in Washington D.C.:

Spend taxpayer money to buy votes, period.

#6 is correct. It´s a vote buying scheme. Does anyone have a copy of the program they use to calculate how many black, poor, or Hispanic votes will result from:

1. Pandering speeches
2. Give-away legislation
3. # of "friends" from those 3 groups
4. # of government appointments given to people from those groups
5. # of miles of border fence construction blocked
6. Lucianne limits the length of a post so I will have to stop adding to the list.

Just enter any of the variables, hit calculate, and up pops the number of new votes you will get from those groups in the next election. I´ll bet every politician in the country has a copy.

It might even work in reverse. Enter the number of votes you NEED, and the program tells you how much of each of the above list you need to do.

I know, pollsters already do this for them but pollsters never really call anyone so the results they give are suspect.

Politics aside, what is the practical reason for this? There is still no path to citizenship for these kids, so they cannot get a social security number and work legally in the U.S.after graduation. Christie is obviously planning on some sort of amnesty happening later.He is probably right.

There are a lot of New Jersey residents who go out of state for a college education. The reason is that they can pay non-resident tuition at that OOS institution that is cheaper than they would pay to a New Jersey state school as a resident student. Amazing.

If you are an alien, why come into the US with a foreign student visa, when you can easily get into the country as a tourist, stay illegally, enroll in a New Jersey public high school, and then three years later be eligible for all sorts of taxpayer provided student grants and loans along with a much lower tuition rate then legal foreign students can obtain at US colleges and universities. State policies that allow that actually undermine the federal immigration laws.

The title is odd.
Access to ..makes it sound like they get free tuition.
They get to pay in state tuition rates at state universities and community colleges.
Christie refused to sign a bill allowing students brought here illegally as children
to get state funded
scholarships and financial aid.
Three states actually allow children brought here illegally to qualify for state financial aid.
California, Texas and New Mexico.
Texas has a Republican Governor and the legislature is controlled by Republicans.
New Mexico has a Republican Governor, but, the state legislature is controlled by Democrats.
Students who were brought here illegally and attended and graduated from state schools can
pay in state tuition rates now in 16 states.
California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota,
Nebraska, New Jersey ,
New Mexico, New York,
Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington.
The taxpayers in every state already
pay hundreds of thousands for the education of illegal children from K-12th grade .

Well, it took us four years to do it, but we finally sold our house in NJ, but not before we had to spend forty grand on "improvements", as dictated by law. Property taxes over twelve thousand a year. We, and several other homeowners on the street had to hire lawyers to keep the city from turning over one of the beautiful old homes on the block into a "save haven" for unwed mothers with children, "free", of course. Just like the other "safe haven" for unwed mothers around the corner, that logged in over four hundred 911 calls per year. Our home was right next door to the one we had to fight to keep from being turned into a crack house. Isn´t life grand? Of course, we were immediately labeled racist for not wanting these poor unfortunates in our neighborhood.

When you get down to the bottom line, does it really matter, as illegal aliens can easily now apply for in-state tuition rates, along with student loans, and grants, by falsely claiming to be US citizens. Most of the places to which they would apply, and through which the paperwork would be processed are run by liberal Democrats to who it would be highly politically incorrect to verify citizenship claims.

#31, the same necessity to pander, as you put it, may be true in NJ. Hispanics are the biggest minority there: just under 18% of the population, according to the latest census. If Perry has to pander, then Christie may have to as well.

As I said, I don´t like it, either.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement.

It’s Good Friday. Time for the leftwing president to do something bad. Barack Obama just punted on the Keystone Pipeline, again, and some Democrats say they are angry at him. The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections. Republicans, as well as red-state Democrats who want the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline approved, slammed the administration for the delay. Democrats even threatened to find ways to

The Obama administration is extending the agency review period for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, potentially delaying the decision until after the November elections -- sparing President Obama a tough political decision in the process. A senior State Department official said agencies have stopped crafting comments because a Nebraska Supreme Court decision could change the pipeline route and, ultimately, the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural factors that went into the environmental review. The official did not directly answer a question whether an altered pipeline route would require a new environmental review.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
