Report: Mass. to Offer In-State Tuition to Illegal Immigrants

Kevin Robillard, Politico, November 19, 2012

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is ordering the state’s public colleges and universities to offer reduced tuition rates to young illegal immigrants eligible for a federal program saving them from deportation.

Patrick, a Democrat, directed the state’s Department of Higher Education to offer in-state tuition rates to illegal immigrants who are eligible for work permits in Massachusetts in a letter sent Monday. The change could save students as much as $13,000 a year in tuition, according to the Boston Globe, which first reported the move.

“While this change in federal enforcement policy applies only to a small segment of our immigrant population and is no substitute for comprehensive immigration reform, it is certainly a step in the right direction,” Patrick wrote in the letter.

“As I see it, this is a matter of basic fairness and economic competitiveness,” Patrick added. “Indeed, our Commonwealth is stronger when we embrace the talent, ideas and work ethic of all immigrants.”

  • In other news, Illinois moves to grant licenses to illegal immigrants

    • The estimate they night issue as many as 250,000 and that all of them will buy auto insurance. They will all come here, detassle some corn get a drivers license. Then go to Shitachusetts, pick some cranberries, and get instate tuition for their unqualified to be college students spawn.

  • You Are Now Enriched

    We are ruled by aliens, perverts, and parasites. Your job is to prepare for the future that they allow you to have. Nobody is coming to your rescue…

    I have a dream…that every applicant to state college is judged not by the color of their skin, but by the status of their entry into this country.

  • Ah, Massachusetts has their own little Barry to worship, instead of just the one we all have to endure. Well, as long as their state is rich and safe, I say I hope they all stay there and not come to my state, like the new yorkers and californians are already doing.

  • Deval Patrick looks like a Mulatto to me, but who cares right? You have to love black men like this one, throwing his people under the bus for the brown invaders. I’m just kidding about that, we all know that the only blacks who go to college are afleets.

  • “As I see it, this is a matter of basic fairness and economic competitiveness,” Patrick added. REALLY????? What the hell does that mean???? What a load of crap!!!!!!!!!!

      It means our treasonous, so-called “leaders” have sold us out. Illegal invaders
      cannot legally work in this country (don’t worry, they are working to change
      that too) , but yet deserve to be “economically competitive” with the very Americans
      they have violated with their presence. Only in an insane asylum would such
      drivel pass muster.

      My way of thinking is falling by the waste side as diversity and treasonous White politicians give this country away to invading brown hordes.

  • As they blur the lines between “legal” and “illegal” the only meaningful lines that remain are racial. And I rather agree with this. As soon as the Constitution became a “piece of paper”, so too does citizenship. We must remember that the ones who define “legal” and “illegal” are corrupt. As our country becomes less and less a “nation of laws”, it will be more and more necessary to ignore those laws and act according to right and wrong.

    “Legal and illegal” versus race is somewhat parallel to “the law” versus what is right. One is artificial while the other is natural.

    I was born and raised in Massachusetts, and I’m currently in Massachusetts for Thanksgiving. I assure you that Massachusetts whites are the most thoroughly brainwashed of all whites. Not only will they support their own demise, but they’ll mock other whites who don’t and they’ll point to Masschusetts as being the most educated state as proof that they’re correct. Self-haters are bad, but pretentious self-haters are the worst.

      If they choose to be brainwashed, so be it. However, the problem arises when these bleeding heart liberals are chased out of their own state and then move elsewhere and replicate the problem (i.e. Californication). i wonder if other states can take advantage of this problem by shipping their illegals to Massachusetts and letting them deal with the problem?

      Years ago, I read an article called “Simple solutions to complex problems”. Essentially, some of the recommendations were along the line of outsourcing our overcrowded prisons to Russia (while paying them cold hard cash for each prisoner), sealing off ghettos and issuing everyone an AK-47, basing Congressional salaries on deficit reduction, etc. The author of this article recommended that soft on crime judges be forced to live in section 8 housing for a couple of months with no locks on the doors. In short order most of them would become hanging judges.

      If New England were filled up with illegals, only the most die-hard knuckleheads would not get the message. Massachusetts and South Carolina were the polar opposites during the “War between the states”. It might be time for South Carolina (and many other states) to get their payback for that war, reconstruction, and heaven only knows how much anti-white legislation that has been foisted upon the South since 1865.

    From what i have read, he has given in state tuition rates to those young illegals who get deferred action from the Obama government. They are still unable to get financial aid from either state or federal government.

    Northern New England is mostly white…why are they plagued with a majority of white liberals?

    • fenway23

      Becasue they rarely get to expierence the joys of diversity first hand that’s why… Barry won 66% of the white vote in Vermont, more than any other state in the country. However, in neighboring New Hampshire the vote was split almost evenly; thanks in part from all the white transplants who have fled the increased diversity of Massachusetts..

      • newscomments70

        I’m from Massachusetts. We have experienced diversity. 8 people in my family have been attacked by blacks over the years, even living in a quiet suburb. Now that hispanics are taking over, it’s actually a sigh of relief that they’re not as violent as blacks.

    Another traitor heard from. Have we dispensed with every law in this country? our laws seem to be totally ignored and pro-illegals provisions put in place. Why do we continue to elect anti-Americans? Kris Kobach for President in 2016 is it isn’t too late.

    • Greg Thomas

      This country will begin to resemble the third world lawless societies, which hordes of third world browns flee. The rule of law and order is something designed to protect White
      societies, which these people abhor. They live by the law of the jungle, literally. Lawlessness and chaos is what they know, and this is what they will sow.

  • kjh64

    I live in Texas so I couldn’t get in state tuition in Mass. but the illegals can. What a joke.

  • Southern__Hoosier

    Another race traitor selling out his own people for the sake of his Democrat masters. By 2040 when whites are in the minority, Blacks will be outnumbered 2:1 by Hispanic. Black will be outvoted by Hispanic 2:1. Hispanic interests are not the same as Black interest.

    And how are the future Jessie Jacksons going to shakedown Hispanic business men? White guilt just doesn’t work on non-whites.
