NY Lawmakers Approve $27M Tuition Aid To Illegals Rejects Bill For Gold Star Families

Nice to see where New York State lawmakers priorities are. With a $176 Billion Dollar budget, NY ok'd $27 million of the state’s budget for the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act. The act allows ILLEGAL immigrant students to be eligible for state aid for higher education, while NOT allowing for a bill to provide free college tuition to Gold Star families. The bill for Gold Star families, was sponsored by Assemblyman Stephen Hawley.


the bill would provide free tuition, room and board for dependent family members of military personnel killed while performing official military duties. Eligible participants could attend either the State University of New York or City University of New York free of charge.

NY lawmakers rejected the bill for Gold Star families because there was "an already existing program that provides $2.7 million to 145 students who are dependents of vets who served in combat zones."


Glick said any expansion of college tuition aid to Gold Star families was not within the state's budget and pointed to an already-existing program that provides $2.7 million to 145 students who are dependents of vets who served in combat zones, the New York Post reported.



“Assemblywoman Glick should be ashamed of herself,” said State Sen. Robert Ortt, R-Niagara. “We set aside $27 million dollars for college for people that are here illegally… Apparently, $2.7 million is all that the families of soldiers who are killed, get. If you’re a child of a fallen soldier, you do not rank as high and you know that by the money.”

So, how much would it have cost New York State to expand college aid for children of deceased and disabled military veterans? Not much, especially when you factor in their $176 Billion Dollar budget.


Fiscal implications of the bill are yet to be determined, according to the New York legislature’s website, but Hawley said an assemblywoman estimated it would cost up to $200,000. However, the assemblyman reasoned the cost was irrelevant.



“With a $176 billion budget, regardless of what the cost is to make our family members of veterans, who have given the ultimate sacrifice defending our country and way of life, [have free tuition], I don’t think it’s a dollar and cents matter at all,” Hawley said. “I think it’s a matter of philosophy. I think it’s a matter of doing the right thing.

Non citizens get $27 million dollars of state aid, while family members of veterans continue to get only $2.7 million dollars. Does this seem fair? Did NY state lawmakers do "the right thing?"

Well, this is the same state CONgresswoman AOC is from... this is completely out of control. NY and CA are 2 prime examples of lawmakers virtue signaling and trying to change the laws in favor of illegals, at the expense of law-abiding citizens. It's disgusting

Good. I'm happy that the politicians are treating us US Vets like criminals. Because we went overseas and killed them poor little villagers that were to take them little boats all the way to California and spread Communism to the America public.

As a Vietnam USA Air Force Veteran, did I miss something that I should have added here other then I'd like to meet Glick in the the classroom of illegals getting free education.

I tell you my fellow Americans, American politicians don't give a flying fk about Americans anymore these days.

I hope President Trump tweets something about this.

I feel like putting my uniform on and drink some Japanese sake and ask why the fk did I join the US military.

I need a lot of feed back from my ATS members here on this one.

Couldn’t the state be sued?

Not only but reporting criminal activities but giving the criminals money?

That's my thinking also.
And ICE should be able to go into the classroom and nail the illegals.

No worries New York is gutting itself.
People are leaving by the hundreds of thousands. The budget shortfalls are so humongous that all this money they are shooting towards the illegals will bankrupt them even further because there won't be anyone left to pay the taxes to support all of this social justice Warrior garbage
And before long New York will be a social justice Haven like San Francisco.
Littered with human waste and dirty needles

At least State Sen. Robert Ortt is from my County.
This disgusts me.
NYC should be cut off from the rest of up state.

The bill includes a timeline for implementation: 90 days after it’s signed into law, applications are supposed to be made available to students. But what those applications should look like is not specified, beyond requiring an affidavit from undocumented students stating that they’ve filed or plan to file an application to become legal residents.

The details will be up to the president of the state’s Higher Education Services Corporation, in consultation with State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia. Andrea Ortiz, manager of education policy at New York Immigration Coalition, an immigration advocacy group, said she hopes the officials consult with coalitions and groups that are familiar with immigrants’ concerns.

Applications should be easy to read and fill out, and should not ask undocumented families for information that could make them uncomfortable, Ortiz said. And the school personnel who will be tasked with helping students to complete them must be trained in the intricacies of working with undocumented students.

Just curious, since this application will not ask much information about family and such...couldn't anyone simply complete it and receive their dream education? Undocumented means that. When my daughter went to college...they needed family financial and residential verification. Long and tedious applications.

New York citizens should be outraged. All this will do is draw many more undocumented families to New York. More people who siphon off your hard earned but taken taxes.

Edit add: though another thought: how can citizens know that this 27million is actually being appropriated correctly as stated, instead of going into someone's coffers?

This is just part and parcel with everything else they role out to illegals.

Who cares if you were born here? Get in the back of the bus while we put the illegals in front of you. And if your parent died making sure we can be this stupid? Get even further back ...

145 students, get 2.7m. Not that much.

How many illegal students are going to get a part of the 27m? Are they on visas?

Wow...the globalism runs deep. Very pervasive. The minions are busy at work.

Now just wait until said same Globalists need another regime change somewhere. Heaps of praise and and money will be heaped upon the MIC. Not the service members mind you. Just the machine.

I am guessing if one has a visa, they would be considered documented and a proper legal immigrant. This appears to be for those who are not documented or illegally overstayed their visas.

Only rewarding those who do not follow the law this time.

I'm not a republican, but the left has demonstrated their ability to outdo themselves on how far past the retard level they have gone and can go.

This is another example of the LEFT saying "Hold My Beer". Eventually they are going to run out of beer, RIGHT?

Higher education? The teachers don't even have to pass the reading portion of the teacher applications anymore because so many were failing it. Higher education is just a liberal dog whistle for brainwashing propaganda.

They also want to remove the electoral college. They hate the constitution when it doesn't play by their rules.

They became an embarrassment in 2007 when they took control of Congress and did everything they could to make Bush look bad. For several years you couldn't mention Bush's name without being insulted by these people. They're a danger to America and its core.
