UT Austin Wants to Dole out Aid to Illegal Aliens

Published

on

The University of Texas at Austin is handing out free tuition, but only to students with families making less than or equal to $65,000.

But it doesn’t stop there. Non-citizens and illegal aliens get to receive this aid as well. Other students are eligible for financial aid, but they don’t receive full coverage.

Early in July, UT Austin unveiled this program, which will go into effect in 2020 and is marketed as an “investment in the future for students.”

The university’s Board of Regents voted to set up a $160 million endowment through Texas’ Permanent University Fund. The endowment will be used to pay for the full tuition cost of nearly 8,600 undergraduates whose households earn no higher than $65,000 per year. It would also partially cover the tuition of 5,700 students with household incomes of up to $125,000.

According to The Texas Tribune, UT system board chair Kevin Eltife said “Our main focus at the UT system is our students. That’s it, that’s what we’re in business for is to provide an affordable, accessible education for our students.”

He added, “We all know the struggles that hardworking families are having putting their kids through school. What we’ve done here is repurposed an endowment into another endowment that will provide tuition assistance to a lot of the working families in Texas.”

Presently, UT is already footing the bill for students with a household income of $30,000 or lower.

UT Austin spokesman J.B. Bird informed Campus Reform that these benefits will be given to illegal immigrants provided that they graduated from a Texas high school. Bird stated, “In keeping with state law, students are not asked about their immigration status.”

He specifically pointed to SB 1403, a state law, which has “provided equal access to higher education for graduates of state public high schools, regardless of their immigration status.”

UT Chancellor James B. Milliken said “There is no greater engine of social and economic mobility than a college degree, and this initiative ensures that more Texans will benefit from a high-quality UT Austin education.”

Milliken added “the use of Permanent University Funds to invest directly in students demonstrates the strong commitment of the Board of Regents and UT Austin to the values of public higher education.”

This is another sign of the changing times in Texas.

Austin has been a leftist bastion for decades. So, a policy like this fits in line with the Left’s political ethos.

Immigration is one of the biggest issues in the upcoming 2020 elections. Based on demographics trends, the Left is capitalizing on mass migration to build a new voting bloc, social consequences be damned.

UT Austin’s financial aid program for illegals is just one of many strategies to cultivate this voter base.

Tom Cotton Calls Out Joe Biden for His Pro-Amnesty Comments at the Last Debate

At Least One Senator Has the Stones To Call Out Democrats’ Immigration Plan to Transform the Country

After former Vice President Joe Biden declared at the presidential debate last week that Americans “owe” Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to illegal aliens, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton quickly pounced on Biden’s pro-amnesty declaration.

“We do not owe anything to these illegal aliens,” Cotton said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily interview with Alex Marlow. “They should be grateful that they’ve been tolerated in this country for all these years,” he declared.

This remark came the day after Biden called for a mega amnesty of the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens currently in the U.S.

Biden said:

I am going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people and all of those so-called ‘dreamers,’ those DACA kids, they are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship … They [DACA migrants] have been here — many of them are model citizens. Over 20,000 of them are first responders out there taking care of people during this crisis. We owe them. We owe them.

Cotton was quick to respond to Biden’s remarks:

He didn’t just say that we’re gonna give them an amnesty in the first hundred days — encouraging a rush to our border over the next six months — he said that we have to do it because we owe it to these illegal aliens.

We owe nothing to illegal aliens. We owe a duty to American citizens to help them get back on their feet and get back to work. And that’s true whether you know whether your parents came over on the Mayflower or it’s true whether you came here the right way, the legal way, and just took the oath of citizenship last week. That’s who we owe something to — to American citizens, not to the foreigners.

In Biden’s plan for mass amnesty, there was no real attempt to at least shore up border security or clamp down on visa fraud, which Cotton highlighted:

Biden is saying ‘I’m gonna send an amnesty bill to the Congress in my first hundred days without asking anything in return, without trying to secure our border, without enforcing immigration at workplaces against unscrupulous employers, without cracking down on visa fraud’

In Cotton’s view, the Democrats are “now the party of open borders, mass migration, and blanket amnesty … that’s a big shift and from where the Democrats were just eight years ago.”

Though Cotton has very hawkish views on foreign policy, his immigration views on are in line with Middle Americans. Immigration patriotism would be best served by politicians who prioritize policing our border, ports, and customs office, as opposed to countries who don’t bend the knee to the foreign policy blob’s demands.

When Cotton talks about immigration, he at his best. This issue is of critical importance to America and the GOP’s ability to stay competitive. Not only does mass migration disproportionately benefit Big Capital thanks to the depression of worker wages, it also create a massive voting bloc that will benefit the Democratic Party in future elections.

It’s time for Americans to realize what’s at stake in this election and vote for Donald Trump.
