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.

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.

Linda Vester had a reputation for covering tough stories. As a war correspondent for NBC News in the ’90s, she spent three tours of duty in the Middle East and took two assignments in Africa. But as it turned out, her biggest battle at work wasn’t in the field.

A federal judge in New York on Thursday appointed one of her former colleagues on that bench, Barbara Jones, to review documents seized from President Donald Trump´s long-time lawyer Michael Cohen. Jones, now a lawyer in private practice, will be responsible for checking those files to see which ones can be turned over to prosecutors investigating Cohen for suspected criminal conduct. Files subject to attorney-client privilege would not be given to prosecutors. Lawyers for Trump and Cohen for nearly two weeks have raised objections to the prosecution´s plan to have those documents reviewed for privilege issues by a team of prosecutors not affiliated

Reid fell to the floor, breaking his ribs and bones in his face. He now is blind in one eye.

Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.

Tijuana, Mexico — About 130 Central Americans, mostly women and children, have arrived at the U.S. border with Mexico in a “caravan” of asylum-seeking immigrants that has drawn the fury of President Donald Trump. Two busloads arrived late Tuesday in the Mexican border city of Tijuana at two migrant shelters just steps from one of the most fortified stretches of border separating the U.S. from Mexico. (Snip) Four more busloads of about 200 Central Americans - mostly women and children but including some men, were expected to arrive in Tijuana Wednesday, said Alex Mensing, project coordinator for Pueblos Sin Fronteras, which

NBC poured millions of dollars into “Megyn Kelly Today” and, in return, they’ve been rewarded with a massive drop in viewership. The Peacock network poached Kelly from Fox last year, enticing her from the conservative flagship network with a three-year, $69 million contract, according to the Wall Street Journal. But Kelly’s introduction to NBC, premiering at the 9 a.m. hour in September, was met with almost immediate controversy — a feud with Jane Fonda that the morning show host dragged out for months — and she never drew the viewership that the network was looking for. Her Sunday night newsmagazine show was

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.

Norristown, Pa. -- Bill Cosby was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting a woman in the first big celebrity trial of the #MeToo era, completing the spectacular late-life downfall of a comedian who broke racial barriers in Hollywood on his way to TV superstardom as America´s Dad. Cosby, 80, could end up spending his final years in prison after a jury concluded he sexually violated Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He claimed the encounter was consensual. Cosby stared straight ahead as the verdict was read, but moments later lashed out loudly at District Attorney Kevin

The election is over and Republican Debbie Lesko has won a West Valley congressional special election in a district that has leaned right for decades. Here’s what else we learned from the unexpectedly competitive race to replace Trent Franks, the veteran Republican who resigned in December amid a sexual-misconduct scandal.The unofficial results show a dramatic underperformance by a Republican in the solidly GOP district. That’s a problem for Republicans, who now need to sort through the results to determine how problematic the landscape will be for them in November. Republicans have a 17 percentage point registration advantage in the district. President Donald Trump

In a direct assault on the freedoms of speech and religion, the California Assembly on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a bill that would, in effect, prohibit the dissemination of traditional Christian teaching on homosexuality and transgenderism. The Assembly voted 50-14 to criminalize “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that consists of “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.” The bill defines “sexual orientation change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) will vote to confirm Ric Grenell as the next U.S. ambassador to Germany, ensuring the confirmation of what will be the highest-ranking ever openly gay person to serve the United States government. Grenell was nominated last year to the position by President Donald Trump. Grenell, who will be confirmed on the floor of the U.S. Senate on Thursday, will report directly to the Secretary of State. The previously highest-ranking openly gay official in government was Barack Obama-era Army Secretary Eric Fanning—who reported directly to the Secretary of Defense. The Secretary of Defense is lower-ranking than the

Deep State: Were the Justice Department and FBI corrupted by their efforts to protect Hillary Clinton and her future chances at the presidency? Recent revelations suggest the answer is an unqualified yes, and now those who cooperated may soon feel the law´s sting for doing so. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may be the worst off. In addition to possible charges for lying under oath for denying that he leaked information to the Wall Street Journal (in large part dfto answer swirling rumors in the journalistic community), it´s alleged that he ordered FBI agents working on the Clinton Foundation investigation

“How can practicing Catholics and evangelical Protestants support a president as immoral as Donald Trump?” This question assumes that it is morally or intellectually inconsistent to do so — an argument that has been advanced in publications as ideologically distant as the National Review and the Atlantic. But are Christians who support Trump inconsistent or guilty of fundamental moral errors? To many conservative Christians, such as myself, Donald Trump offered the hope of making right what they saw as going horribly wrong in our country. Alternative candidates stood for policies that would make things worse and were beset with deep
