Try not to let this ruin your day, but Governor Deval Patrick plans to direct state colleges and universities to offer lower (resident) tuition rates to illegal immigrants. The state legislature has said “No” but apparently Patrick is going to do it anyway.
This action by the governor is the result of President Obama’s executive order to enforce elements of the DREAM Act after it failed to pass in Congress. Anyone else see a pattern here?
Who’s standing up for the U.S. citizens who can’t afford college tuition? Where is their break? More and more our governor is serving the needs of special interest groups at the expense of the majority of his constituents. It’s wrong and it’s unconstitutional.
BTW Patrick’s number is 617-725-4005 (hint, hint).
State to widen tuition breaks to include immigrants
