IS BEING AN ILLEGAL ALIEN NOW LEGAL?
by Nick Fotunato
(Nov. 30, 2010) — A Connecticut woman gives an impassioned speech, proudly declaring that she is “undocumented.” She goes on to say that she suddenly realized that her “legal status or social security number may stand between her dreams and her future.”
There are people from all over the world who didn’t come here illegally who also have dreams about their future. Why should anyone be rewarded for breaking a country’s laws?
She says; “We (illegals) won’t stand on the sidelines anymore. For years I learned to be quiet and to live in the shadows and to hide.”
Did it ever occur to her there was a reason why she hid and stayed in the sidelines? It was because she broke the law. She says that her legal (illegal) status or social security number may stand between “her dreams and her future.” Why should a trivial thing like the law matter, or that she violated another law by having a fraudulent social security number? This compounding of law-breaking is like telling a lie and then telling more lies to protect the lies you’ve already told. The sad thing is that the very people who represent us as citizens and hold us accountable to obeying the laws are aiding and abetting those who do not. The status of illegals is being elevated while the taxpaying citizens are being reduced to a lower standard.
Connecticut Democratic Senate Majority Leader Looney said; “This will be a substantial opportunity for children who are in every way like other American children other than the circumstance of their birth.” Children all over the world are like American children except for their birth; what a looney thing to say.
Looney said he has a commitment from Democratic Gov.-elect Dan Malloy that he would sign the bill. No sooner does a Democrat get into office and he’s siding with illegals, making government bigger, and looking to raise the cost of taxes and spending. Governor Malloy, we’re already in debt; you should be looking to cut spending. Connecticut is out of sync with the rest of the country, except perhaps the bankrupt California. Who is going to pay for our indebtedness as we subsidize people who break the law?
Liberal, progressive Democrats, don’t worry about such things as multibillion-dollar deficits; they’re either too rich, too guilty, illegals themselves, working for the state, or are simply the beneficiaries of free entitlements.
Many Connecticut residents can’t afford to go to college, so why are we subsidizing foreigners when we can’t even take care of our own? Why discriminate for illegals and against citizens? I think it’s because the Democrats are hedging their bet that they can turn illegals into legal Democrat voters in the near future. I think it’s obvious that morality and ethics are not important attributes in the eyes of many Democrats. Apparently they’ll sell out the relevance and importance of citizenry, rendering it to be of no consequence, opening the door to one-world, global government. If you can sneak your way into the country, there are liberal Democrats who will help you at the expense of legal taxpaying citizens.
Mayor DeStefano and state lawmakers are supporting an in-state tuition bill for undocumented students to provide full college tuition for residents who graduate from New Haven public or charter schools.
Laws that mandate in-state college tuition to include illegals are created in conflict with and circumvent the federal law. Giving citizen rights to illegal invaders who have not paid their dues is a slap in the face to those immigrants who have paid a price to enter here legally.
This is typical liberal progressive doctrine; once they sneak their nose in the door using Orwellian deceptive language and methods, they incrementally, a step at a time, increase the size and cost of government at the hardworking taxpayers’ expense. Illegality is irrelevant to liberals except, of course, when it concerns citizens. They want to reward immigrant illegality while punishing those citizens who abide by the law.
Obama wants to rush through the DREAM Act to give citizenship to undocumented young people.
Should children be punished for what their parents did? Should the children of bank robbers derive any benefits from the money that their parents got from robbing a bank?
In-state tuition at the University of Connecticut is $8,064, while tuition for out-of-state residents is $24,528. Constance Fraser, spokeswoman for the state Department of Higher Education, said illegal immigrants would pay out-of-state tuition because they are not considered legal residents of Connecticut.
What hypocrisy: They won’t acknowledge illegals as being residents even though they live in Connecticut? Fraser said illegal immigrants would not be eligible for state or federal financial aid. Not today they won’t, but down the road, when they’re allowed to vote and/or become citizens they will eligible; remember, the liberals work in increments. The citizens, like the proverbial frog, won’t realize what’s happened until the water begins to boil and then it’s too late.
