I will never understand why we give money to people that are known to be in this country illegally. If I do something against the law, it costs me money, it doesn't make me money.
This country is under a crushing debt. Yet for some reason money is given to people that admit they are breaking our laws. This makes no sense to me at all.
But because a few people that run a few businesses will make a few dollars from it. All of us tax payers and future natural born American job seekers will pay through the teeth.
We don't need to educate them, send them back to their home country.
We don't need to educate them, feed them, cure them, birth their too many babies, clothe them, or anything else. When people break the law they should be put in jail, if they are illegal immigrants, they should be put to work at hard labor. If Americans that are out of work won't take the jobs that are left behind then their unemployment benefits will be forfeited.
They are taking tuition assistance from our veterans and active duty soldiers and they want to give assistance to illegals! Really?!?
Not only from soldiers, but from natural born American students whose families need this type of help to educate their children.
If you're here illegally, no...you get nothing. You want the benefits of this country, learn the language, follow the rules and become a citizen, just like the rest of us. Otherwise, go home. Not only vets and active-duty soldiers but ordinary Americans have to pay tuition, and my state tax dollar pays for it for illegals??? I don't think so! Not just "no", but "hell no"!!!!!
To all those that feel as the people posting their opinions here. Call, email, or write your elected officials and tell them that you are opposed to this. That is the only way you will have a voice.
This bill "allows in-state tuition for illegal immigrants who attend a public or private high school in Colorado for at least three years immediately preceding graduation or completion of a GED in the state and who are admitted to a Colorado college."
When we educate one student, we educate us all. I wholeheartedly support the passage of this bill.
When you educate one illegal you are taking that money and opportunity from a legal citizen, veteran or an active duty soldier. If they aren't here by legal means they should NOT be afforded any rights or privileges that rightfully should be given to legal citizens. This includes welfare benefits, medical treatment, and any other government sponsored programs.
I think juju should pay the entire cost of this bill, including what the legislators keep for themselves as a bonus for doing such a miserable job.
I know students that attended schools here for 12+ years and no one passed a bill to give them free tuition. Seems way one sided to me. More freebies for those that shouldn't be here to begin with.
Would you honestly deny medical services? Even in the case of an emergency?
To a person that should not even be in this country at all. Yes.
If they were being treated for an honest emergency, no. But that's not always the case, which drives the cost of medical care up for people that live here legally. And there should be no such thing as anchor babies, coming here and having their children and getting government assistance also takes away from honest citizens. If they want to live and work here they should apply for citizenship in the proper way, not sneak over and then suck the system dry.
Kids shouldn't be punished for their parents decisions. I support the bill.
Tell them to take their kids back to where they came from and they won't be punished. The bill sucks!!
