As American families sacrifice to pay college tuition for their children, illegal aliens are receiving college financial aid in several states. There are also numerous states that give in-state tuition to illegal aliens providing a much lower price than a legal college applicant from a different state.
And we wonder why we have a stampede to get in at our southern border…
A new program in New Jersey allows illegals to get state financial aid at college. State funds are used for this program that is currently active in 10 other states in the U.S. How is it legal to use state funds to pay for non-citizen education assistance?
A little over $4,000 was awarded to illegals at forty colleges in New Jersey. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed the new law into effect last May that allows for illegals to apply for financial aid without asking for their legal status.
The expected number of illegals to apply in New Jersey had been 600, but there were over 1,000 applications for assistance.
A total of 513 “DREAMers” received $1.6 million in state financial aid during the fall 2018 semester, according to NJ.com. Forty colleges in New Jersey are accepting at least one illegal alien student using financial aid, including The College of New Jersey, Rowan University and Seton Hall University. Rutgers University is accepting the highest number, 150 illegal alien students, awarding a total of $623,109 to the students, or around $4,150 per student.
The cost of this program is expected to be $5 million per year.
Other states like Connecticut, Washington, Oklahoma, Texas also have the program to give money to illegal aliens.
