(Congress Report) – Colleges and universities located in the state of Arizona are getting prepared to start enrolling more illegal aliens for the spring semester that is now rapidly approaching, after voters opted to approve a measure on the ballot that would allow these individuals to qualify for in-state tuition, the Daily Caller said.
So not only are illegal aliens now getting loads of free stuff, including housing, health care, food, and other benefits, as a reward for breaking our immigration laws, but they are getting help to pay for college classes too. And this is why so many who cross the border illegally end up becoming chained to the Democratic Party for life, not realizing that they are being turned into a sort of slave to the system, used as a number and a vote by the Democratic Party who seem them not as people but a means to attain and keep political power.
“Voters approved Proposition 308 during the midterm elections with 51.7% of the vote to allow all students to receive in-state tuition regardless of immigration status so long as they graduated from an Arizona high school which they attended for a minimum of two years. Undocumented students will be eligible for in-state tuition prices beginning in January, Arizona Board of Regents Chair Lyndell Manson told APM,” Alexa Schwera wrote.
“Approximately 3,600 high school graduates are expected to benefit from the proposition per year, according to Education Forward Arizona, and will now be eligible to pay a lower cost of tuition by claiming in-state status. On average, Arizona in-state tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year cost $4,715, while out-of-state tuition was tagged at $17,234, according to College Tuition Compare,” Schwera continued.
“Proposition 308 is an incredible investment not only for Arizona’s students but Arizona’s workforce,” Chuck Coolidge, executive vice president of marketing and communications at the Maricopa County Community Colleges stated during a chat with the Daily Caller News Foundation. “It’s great step forward for us to help resolve our current serious labor shortage. These eligible students will be able to access Maricopa’s extensive workforce development options, quick starts, and even our new bachelor degree programs. We are excited to welcome new and returning students back to our Maricopa Community Colleges.”
Arizona is the 23rd state in the Union to provide illegal aliens with in-state tuition, according to a report from AZ Central. The story revealed there are around 273,000 illegal aliens in the state of Arizona.
“I think this is a good step in the right direction to educating more people in our state,” Manson remarked.
Republican state Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita spoke with APM and noted that this provision doesn’t really “solve anything” noting that there are far more important aspects to the immigration issue that need to be dealt with right now.
“Giving undocumented students in-state tuition has nothing to do with the realities of what this country faces when it is trying to manage this border and deal with illegal immigration,” she commented.
The victory of Prop 308 back in November served to reverse a decision from 2006 by voters in Arizona to prohibit illegals from receiving in-state tuition. That previous measure, known as Proposition 300, passed with a stunning 71 percent of the vote.
