All you illegals, come on down to UCLA, where you will not only be able to get a UCLA education, but you’ll get a terrific discount. Those of you who have the misfortune to not be here illegally, tough nougies: you pay the full freight.
As reported by Fox News:
Former SEIU Attorney Kent D. Wong, the Director of UCLA’s Center for Labor Research and Education, announced this past week that UCLA has joined forces with the National Labor College, the academic arm of organized labor, to create a new partnership, National Dream University, which enables illegal aliens residing anywhere in the United States to earn up to 18 college credits online.
So far so good. If an illegal immigrant betters himself by getting an online education, that’s likely to help both him and his community.
On the other hand, there’s a typical Obama pander at work, as exemplified in the cost break that those here illegally will get. Also from Fox:
Illegal aliens who reside in California and transfer all 18 National Dream University credit hours to UCLA will pay $4,728 less than the $7,128 legal California residents who attend UCLA currently pay for the same 18 credit hours. The subsidies to illegal aliens are even greater for those who reside outside of California. They will pay $17,604 less than the $20,004 legal US residents who are not California residents and attend UCLA currently pay for the same 18 credit hours.
We all want those here illegally to either get out, or, if that’s not feasible, then become productive, tax-paying members of society. This “Dream University” may help. But since when should someone who’s very presence in this country breaks our laws get a price break over someone who is here legally?
Doesn’t seem quite fair, does it. But, as with most other things about Obama and his Big Labor co-thugs, “fair” is a word that has been stripped of its English meaning.
