Jeff Bezos donates $33 million to
help send 1,000 Dreamers to college

Fox Business, by Jade Scipioni

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2018 2:32:22 PM

With his newly minted title as the world’s richest person, Amazon’s (AMZN) Jeff Bezos announced on Friday that he is donating a piece of his $108 billion fortune to fund 1,000 college scholarships for “Dreamers.” TheDream.US, the nation’s largest scholarship program for Dreamers, said Bezos donated $33 million in a scholarship grant—one of largest grants in the organization’s history—to give 1,000 undocumented immigrant high school graduates who are part of the Deferred Action for Children Arrivals (DACA) program the opportunity to go to college. “My dad came to the U.S. when he was 16 as part of Operation Pedro Pan,” Bezos

Comments:
These leftists just make me sick! Their affection for all the illegals is just outrageous. What about AMERICAN children?? Bezos and his ilk should be utterly and completely ashamed of themselves for destroying this country that has given them so much. It just infuriates me that they snub those born in this country..

You don´t learn anything, when people give you things. The younger generation has nothing to do but get into trouble, when they don´t DO things to earn what they want.

Good bezo. You pay for their college tuition. Don’t forget to pay for their food and housing. After they graduate send them back to their own country. Tell them to fix the place where they came from. Help their own people

So how many Americans has Bezos provided scholarships for??

Perhaps it is time to consider a national sales tax on internet sales, you know so we have the money to provide educational opportunities for underprivileged American citizens, as opposed to illegal aliens. You hearing me Jeff??

He could give $10,000 to 100,000 American citizens to go to college, and still have $107 billion. What a cheapskate...

When you have $108 billion, $33 million is nothing. But to give it as a reward for criminal behavior is just disgusting. Guess I will have to stop using Amazon for anything, since Mr. Bezos doesn´t seem to like Americans.

It´s his money and he can do what he wants with it. He is free to support those things he believes in, be it dogs & cats, wounded soldiers, or college for undocumented immigrants. I would only hope some of these kids take their education gift, when done, willingly return to their home country in order to make IT better. America is a good place to live. What about some of those "other" countries, that Trump allegedly so indelicately (but accurate!)mentioned? If they´re so repellent to it´s own peoples, why not make them better?

That is 3/100ths of one percent of his entire fortune. That´s the equivalent of an average incomer giving $9.00 to buy a street bum a Burger King meal.

33 million to buy a college education to some border crashers. wonderful. Can´t think of anything else to do with it, can he? besides, where4 do you go to get a 4 year university education these days for $33,000.00? That´s only $4,125 per semester. My neighbors daughter just enrolled in Utah State and her books and labs alone were $2,100! What will they live on? Or does he think that will pay their living expenses in a half-way house, while the State tuition pays the rest of their way through community college?

see? The numbers do not add up. This is pure Bull scatology!

He can pick and choose where to spend his money. I have chosen not to shop with Amazon for the past year and have not missed it. I refuse to give Bezos/Amazon/The Washington Post a cent of my money. For those who think they can´t live without Amazon, well, you most certainly can.

My son has a year and a half of college left. His father and I work crazy hours to pay for his college, after paying for our older son´s college. They´re not illegal though so they don´t get free in-state tuition like others in our State do. And they don´t qualify for financial aid. And our taxes are going up.

He can contact me anytime he wishes to pay for the remainder. Not holding my breath though.

$33,000 would pay for a year or year and a half at a state university. Although it´s nice of him - it only covers one quarter to one third of a 4 year college education.

He can spend his money any way he wants. I wonder, will he set up some sort of charitable trust or something in order to claim a tax deduction?

He could use billions to rebuild Puerto Rico.

I can see his point, after all it was citizens who made him rich, and as he see them as stupid, why waste money on them.
There is, however, a potential serious downside.
What he is doing is knowingly entering into a contract with an illegal alien, that is a crime. Even if he only gets 2 days in jail for each offence it will be sufficient to dissuade him from trying this again.

It´s his money. He can waste it on this if he wants.

But it sure would be nice if he would maybe help send 1,000 kids of US military members who died in service to this country to college.

I think it will be interesting if this blows up in his face the same way it did when Starbucks declared that they were going to hire a bunch of illegals...

The so-called “Dreamers” a word invented by the liberal Democrats in a political effort to fool unknowing Americans, are mostly all adult illegal aliens. So far only 4% of them have graduated from college, and less than 1% of them have served in the armed forces, contrary to some Uniparty politicians’ false claims.

The James Comey memos that leaked to the media and were a catalyst for the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller were more widely shared than previously known, three sources familiar with the matter tell Fox News. Sources identified former U.S. Attorney and special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald as the likely recipient, and did not rule out a third individual, in addition to Columbia law professor Daniel Richman, who shared contents with the media. The memos documenting Comey’s private conversations with the president are now the subject of a Justice Department Inspector General review over the presence of classified information.

Democratic California Rep.

I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Former Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid, who was once “hopeful” about President Trump, is not warming up to the commander in chief. Reid still has hurt feelings about Trump mocking the injuries he sustained when an exercise band he was using at home snapped and hit him in the face. Reid fell to the floor, breaking his ribs and bones in his face. He now is blind in one eye. Trump mocked Reid in September 2016 after the Democratic leader commented on Trump’s weight. “[To show] what kind of a person he is, when I injured myself, I couldn’t sleep

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.
