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.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo.

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.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
