Your American tax dollars now used to support Illegal Aliens with Affirmative Action polices.

University Insiders: Illegal Immigrants Get Affirmative Action - FoxNews.com

University of Maryland (College Park) computer science Prof. James Purtilo told FoxNews.com that, during his time as an associate dean, he frequently saw admission officers favor students because of their “undocumented” status.

Dream Act supporters question what is wrong with applying the same policies that apply to citizens – even if it’s affirmative action – to undocumented students. And Torres notes that many undocumented immigrants, despite being in the country illegally, do pay taxes.

“Too bad for the very well prepared student, a U.S. citizen and taxpayer in this state, whose parents might once have thought their kids should have a shot at the flagship campus,” he said.

Universities can get away with a lot of things in admission that employers cannot in hiring. They can say whatever they want about their policies, then bring in whatever students they want to. I think this policy will be short lived, since preference is now going to foreign and out-of-state students for the higher tuition rates.


Here the U of WA is turning down local 4.0 valedictorians in favor of foreign students with lower qualifications who can pay the out of state tuition.

If this is something truly happening, this is plain wrong. This should be brought to further attention. Money seems to always be the root to all evil.

So now, foreign invaders are entitled to a “level playing field” for flouting our laws?
