Meant to add this. 10,000 kids were turned away. We wonder how many illegals are in our schools. We so far don't know but I'm sure every one of those 10,000 would like to know.


The budget threat to community colleges

No - and with so many American citizens and legal residents who did everything the right way losing the "American Dream" it's rather absurd that those who are here breaking every law that doesn't suit them believe they are entitled to some American Dream.

Illegals who really want to attend college here should do like other foreign students and obtain foreign student visas and pay their own way through college.

He warned the ban could harm the state's reputation.
Reputation for what? bowing for illegals?

Like the song goes:

" your going to ruin my "bad" reputation". What a dork!

More than likely fellow family members and future family members on the dole.

Our local community college had previously had rolling admissions. About 2 years ago they had to close enrollment due to the demand -- all seats were filled. Part of this can be attributed to the economic downturn -- many students who could have gone away to school, or who could attend more expensive local schools could no longer afford to. State schools (SUNY system) have seen large numbers of students (who would have gone elsewhere) clamouring to get in, resulting in students requiring higher averages, higher SATs, etc, to gain admission.

What happens to the USC who can't afford a more expensive school and who wants to attend a local community college but can't because an illegal has taken up the space?

Do we say,"Tough noogies --get a job!" ????

The local UC institutes capped enrollment and now the JC's are flooded with kids trying to get classes. I can't imagine how many are getting shut out by people that aren't supposed to be here.
