Yes, I read this over in DREAMland, along with all of your other threads. It won’t happen, but you guys can always DREAM.

Let them apply for a foreign student visa and do it the right way. Lawbreakers should not believe they're entitled to having everything free of cost. Illegals are not better people than those from the same country who respect our laws.

No maybe not every person on the planet, but mainly Illegal Aliens.. Ya see Dreamies aren't arguing for ANY other specific ethnic groups, just their own..

Also, the courtesy only extends to Illegal Aliens and NOT Legal U.S. citizens.. Many legal U.S. citizens and working poor can't afford college, but yet Illegal Aliens and their supporters continue to dismiss those that are against Illegal Immigration as "uneducated" and needing to "go to school to get more education".. but they also argue that Illegal Aliens should be entitled to that education that they are urging American citizens to receive.. Illegal Aliens and their supporters basically believe that they are entitled to EVERYTHING at the expense of the working American taxpayer.. Period!

Also, yes, "Undocumented" (whatever that means) Student's Dream should be realized as long as it is a dream of Deportation!

They get financial aid. If I am not mistaken Harvard will fully fund you if you are admitted and don't have the money. I also have several friends from MIT who were fully founded including a living stipend, but I'm not sure if there is a blanket policy for MIT as there is for Harvard.

I don't know of anyone who has been admitted to an Ivy league school and has not been given at least partial support if they cannot pay for it.

Immigration: 36 Chicago students killed sets record
That's just a small sampling of what Chicago has become. Quite frankly, it has pretty much become an extension of mexico. It's disgusting to say the least.

The families of these so-called dreamies can use the dollars they've saved up for the expensive American universities and use them to send their children to good universities in Mexico (or other countries) which are actually a better deal. Mexico certainly will accept dollars as payment for tuition. The parents actually come out ahead because Mexican universities are more affordable than ours.

So there's no need for their dream of college to end, they've obviously saved up money for college tuition, it's now just a matter of *where*.

I should hope these dreamies aren't just refusing to go home to go to college because they believe that being here illegally somehow entitles them to all all-expenses paid free university education here.

Oh -- and whatever happened to that argument that we need illegals because they'll pick lettuce and do jobs like that -- jobs no Americans want to do? Now we find out that they're really coming here to be given free college? Hmmmmmm........ That's not good. Who's going to mow our lawns and make our beds and clean our toilets if the illegals think they're too good for that kind of work?
