I was saying this would happen if the dems would win control of congress. Few people listened to me. My tax dollars are going to go to fund ILLEGAL alien education while American students get pushed to the side...just as I was during the Clinton years.

Money this is nothing new.


California school districts have allowed illegals in them for the last 70 years. Nancy should offer to give her job to an illegal since she's going to give them everything else.

This isn't just for illegal aliens, but all younger people which is good (your title is misleading like Pelosi is justdoing this for illegals). And just because they don't have a green card, does not mean they skipped over the border just yesterday. My friend is a resident in the US and is from Saudi Arabia and has lived here for 6 years. They aren't a legal resident/have a green card but shouldn't they get the same things we get considering they pay taxes as well?

NO! Who do they think they are? Who do YOU think they are? If they want to go to school they should have to pay for it. What's wrong with the schools where they are from? Why should ANY of us pay for the socialist indoctrination of ILLEGAL foriegners here in the states?

It's NOT the governments job to be involved with this at all. They can't do anything right and we need to keep the gov't out of everything we can...

DAMN! It's not enough to give them the job I was perfectly happy with, now you want to educate them for free so they can take YOUR job too! Think man!

After this is passed, I won't be shocked when the illegal alien voter ammendment is pushed through, now armed with "legal, illegal status, welfare, credit cards, health care", they will scream to have a right to cast their illegal vote in future elections.

Welcome to Mexamerica..........

I am very upset, because my children didn't have any Tuition brakes . . . as American citizens. . .

Right now the state of GA is facing budget cuts to higher education due to Bush slashing everything he can to support his outrageous Iraq and Afghanistan spending.

I can not believe that we pay taxes and our taxes are going out the country . . . and now is brake time for illegals?

Outrageous.


I don't believe that the democrats won the congress to cater to outsiders, they were elected because American are tired of everything that is going in this country, from illegal immigration to wars.

The selling out of the citizens of this country contunues.
Pelosi, like other apoligists, have an elitest attitude. She should have a private jet, but but be allowed to hire illegals to clean her house. Allowing illegal immigration, directly affecting the supply and demand matrix of labor. Lower cost, higer profits, more votes from those allowed to violate our laws. Sworn to uphold the Constitytion, while guilty of aiding and abetting federal laws by hiring illegals. Almost a direct violation of the RICO ACT.

Violation of a sworn Congressional oath is treason, regardless of your beliefs.


When one allows another to break our laws and then reward them, what happens next time? Or will we be racist then too?

Give them an inch, and they will take a mile.
That goes for everyone. Just look at our elected officials.

The illegals at the restaurant where I work vote. Those were the illegals that have been here for over 10 years. Crazy stuff happens all the time. Whatever is best for Walmart is best for America I guess, or that's what everyone keeps telling me.

Marge,

I agree with you 100%. When I went to college back in the 1990's I had a hard time getting my education paid for. I finally got unsubsidized federal student loans...the kind that I have to pay interest on as opposed to subsidized loans. I know allot of very bright American kids (legal citizens born here) that did not get to go to college because they were unable to get the required funding. It really p----s me off!

Get used to it, the government never gives benifits to a specific group without hurting another.

Affermative Action, although well intentioned, affected thousands of children that otherwise would have qualified for grants, scholarships that were given to
others simply because of the color of their skin.

Now we find that our government is selling OUR CHILDRENS FUTURE, to those whose first act was to violate our laws.

Unlawful entry into a soverign country is usually called an invaision. To invade then DEMAND special treatment is insulting. For our officials to defend this action is nothing short of treasinous behavior.

Reminds me of Dubba giving pardons to 13 drig dealers, and locking up law enforcement officials for stopping a drug runner.

Agree or not..these are the facts

The real reason for this is to create a bigger pool for army recruits.

This is outrageous... Democrats at their best.

How DARE her... HOW DARE HER? Seriously, there are LOADS of AMERICAN children who cannot afford to pay tuition... who are scrambling when time comes to pay for their education and she dares use MUCH NEEDED MONEY to help ILLEGAL immigrants pay for theirs?

WHY is she even doing THAT let alone ACCOMMODATING the illegals...

This is pathetic.

Emphasis my own...

Are you blinded by your racism? Or, can you simply not read and comprehend?

So quick to turn something into a "them vs. us".....

I think we can all agree on one thing....the costs of getting a higher education are too high for everyone. Personally, I dont see the problem with reducing the cost of college. It would help the disadvantaged break the poverty cycle and then they could send their children to college, furthering the education of the populace.

And as for the belief that "If it doesn't help me directly, it isn't right" I call on you to think about funding Iraq, veterans benefits, unemployment, and all the other social welfare programs that YOU pay for but may not actually ever use, but do actually have a large benefit to society.

We shouldn't be so self-centered when it comes to taxes...these things actually will have a benefit on you, your children, or your grandchildren many years down the line. Give a little, get a lot.

Why is so hard for some people to understand that ILLEGAL imigration is ILLEGEAL. ILLEGAL imigrants are not a legitimate "group." They are ILLEGAL and, therefore, HAVE NO RIGHT TO AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS...PERIOD.

This is ridiculous; when I went to college (not long ago), I funded every penny of it with private loans because they considered my parents income in deciding what help I could receive even though I didn't get a penny from them. And now they have so much 'excess' money lying about that we are going to give illegals money to attend school instead of the middle class families that are the ones kicking in money to the government's coffers in the first place. I personally do not believe it is government's job to put people through school; the government never did anything more efficiently than the citizens can with the same money, but, this, this is bull. It is about time we trim the fat from that bull.

Nacy Pelosi, You make me sick
pandering, apologist, socialist

I don't have a problem with people here legally who receive financial aid through scholarships because of academic prowess from private donors; I happen to know students from China, Korea, Poland, Russia, and Mexico who deserve every dime of the private scholarships they receive. Public grants, however, are OUR money.
