I never said she was denied access because of an IA. I was responding to your claim that colleges are not full, many college programs are FULL as I have shown and as a result students are denied spots.

Likewise as I have shown 50,000+ illegals are attempting to attend colleges and once more unless you are going to try to deny that some of these illegals are going to apply for impacted ("full") programs then it is clear you are blowing smoke.

Unless you deny the above then the logical conclusion is Illegals do take the place of qualified legal immigrants and citizens.

Ok, where do you think they kids will go? All this does is ensure they continue the cycle of poverty.
yes because they are not required to pay taxes. Legal citizens are required to pay taxes. If the people that pay taxes are funding the school they should be first in line to an edjucation. only fair.

Illegal immigrants are blame for EVERY single thing that happens in america, they steal our jobs, they don't speak english, they don't assimilate, they are stealing our college education.
