Esteban Navarro's disappearance broke a lot of hearts at Trenton Central High School, where the dropout rate among Hispanic students is triple the state average...I knew what was coming next, because I've seen so many very similar stories. In fact, there have been so many stories printed almost exactly like this one in tone, content, and structure that I've almost been programmed to give illegal alien advocates everything they want, and more. First they describe just how wonderful an affected child is and his or her plight. Then, like a bright, golden ray, comes hope:
...One solution is embodied in the In-State Tuition Act, first introduced in the New Jersey Legislature in 2003, which would allow illegal immigrants like Mr. Navarro to attend public colleges at in-state tuition rates...Why, it's almost like a sales pitch in its wonderful use of the language! It's unfortunate that you printed hateful thoughts however:
..."If someone from Philadelphia wants to go to school in New Jersey, and an illegal is getting in-state tuition, that angers students a great deal," said Jean Oswald, executive director of New Jersey Commission on Higher Education...Boo! Grown-up talk about policy is such a downer! I want to hear wonderful heart-tugging stories about immigrants struggling against oppression! Thankfully, you didn't explain what she means by "litigious" (example: "Twenty-Four Americans Challenge Law, Claiming New Policy Discriminates Against American Citizens").
..."One of the underlying issues from a policy perspective was the inequity this bill would create in a litigious state like New Jersey," Sharon Ainsworth, director of state relations at Rutgers, said in her testimony. "There is a whole category of students whose parents are here working on visas. We would be providing a benefit to an undocumented student and not to a documented one."
A National Honor Society student, Dina was awarded a scholarship to a local two-year college, where she is studying to become a nurse. Since Dina is an illegal immigrant, she is using a false Social Security number...Isn't that wonderful?
