Chinese illegals?...Russians?..Guatemalans?...Norwegians?. ..I don't care, as long as they're not Mexicans.
It pisses people off a LITLE bit more when its a Mexican/Salvadorian/Guatemalan.

Viewed purely in terms of economics, Harvard is really a $40 billion tax-free hedge fund with a very large marketing and PR arm called Harvard University that has the job of raising the investment capital and protecting the fund’s preferential tax treatment.

While their "endowments" may come from private donations, Harvard is no different from any other corporate crook that hides it's assets under the guise of a tax exempt status. Thus, they are deliberately robbing the US of billions of tax dollars in order to dole out "scholarships" to illegal aliens such as the subject of this thread. While it may not be illegal, it sure as hell is just as unethical as the illegal aliens in this country demanding and receiving instate tuition rates. See: DREAMies.

That's fine, but don't get too comfortable losing them. They don't come back and you might need them.

Again; some have brain cells to lose, while others don't. I'm glad I'm not in the latter group. Thanks for the concern.

Now, can we return to the OP?

ICE needs to deport ALL illegals, if they'd been doing their job all along we wouldn't be in this predicament. No leniency for law breaking employers, no leniency for illegals.

Did he not "unlawfully hustle" his way into this country - or did I miss something. The fact remains he is an illegal alien, who snook his way into a country breaking the laws.

There are many many law abiding citizens and legal aliens who are just as genious, and as they are not illegal and breaking the law, are more deserving of this grant.

Thats the problem, little fish turn into big fish. There is a saying that kinda of relates.

For the want of a nail, the shoe was lost,
For the want of a shoe, the horse was lost,
For the want of a horse, the rider was lost.

Incase this is "lost" on you, every single fish is a worry. Where there is one there is more. ICE needs more employees and needs to step it up.
