Illegal aliens get discounted college; 82,000 Americans denied state grants
The Houston Chronicle discusses the discounted college educations that illegal aliens get in Texas schools: "More illegal immigrants in colleges".
More indeed. Texas changed its laws to allow those here illegally to get in-state college educations in 2001. Since that time, there's been a ninefold increase in the number of illegal aliens in Texas getting that discount:
State Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, who co-sponsored the Texas legislation, said she's pleased to see the strong enrollment patterns.
Late last year, the state comptroller reported that more than 82,000 freshmen were denied state grants because there was not enough money for all eligible students.
Nothing else needs to be said.
