New York’s legislature just approved a bill that will spend millions upon millions of tax dollars to send illegal aliens to college.
That’s right, you read that right. The state passed a new bill to spend $27 million of the taxpayers’ dollars to send illegals to college.
As the Daily Caller reported:
Jordan was joined by other Republican state legislators in criticism of the Dream Act, who argued it would unfairly take money away from legal residents who struggle to pay their college tuition.
Democrats have been trying to push this deal for years and with the state’s Senate finally in the hands of the Democrats, the bill came up again and this time it passed.
“We do this as a symbol that you will be guaranteed an education and that the door to higher education is open to all children of New York State,” stated De La Rosa, sponsor of the bill and immigrant from the Dominican Republic.
Gov. Cuomo has not signed the bill into law yet, but he has praised it so it is likely he’ll be signing it soon enough.
Democrats have also signaled that they also intend to move forward with laws to allow illegals to get drivers licenses. They also intend to force landlords to rent to illegals. You can bet they have even more disastrous ideas, too.
This is why New York is drowning in debt, of course.
