The shocking thing about the fact that the New Jersey governor is giving illegals the same opportunity as legal U.S. citizens is that there are more states that already do the same thing. New Jersey is the tenth state to allow illegal aliens to obtain financial aid, joining Oregon, Connecticut, Texas, Oklahoma, California, Washington, Hawaii, New Mexico, and Minnesota. This is just another example of lawmakers ignoring legal American citizens. The lines continue to blur between legal and illegal. Why should the taxpayers of these states be on the hook for this? This fact should be concerning to EVERY American no matter what side of the aisle you’re on. The taxpayers of these states are under NO moral, legal or ethical obligation to pay for the children of illegal invaders.
The big question should be: WHERE DOES THIS END?
Breitbart News reports:
The governor of New Jersey signed a law Wednesday allowing illegal aliens to apply for state financial aid programs to help pay for college beginning this fall, and the state has wasted no time in implementing it.
The New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application for illegal aliens went live on the state’s financial aid website as of Thursday, allowing non-citizens not legally in the country to apply for the same financial aid benefits as U.S. citizens.
Illegal aliens—including Dreamers brought to the U.S. illegally as children—can apply for financial aid if they graduated from a New Jersey high school, attended high school in New Jersey for at least three years, and promise to legalize their immigration status, according to the NJ Higher Education Student Assistance Authority’s website.
“We know New Jerseyans support the ability of our Dreamers to not only remain in our state but to become a strong and contributing part of our society and our economy,” Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said in a statement shortly after signing the bill Wednesday at a ceremony on the Rutgers University campus in Newark. “By allowing them to not only go to college but to qualify for financial assistance, we are living up to that ideal.”
