The good news keeps on rolling in for illegal aliens in the state of California.
In addition to receiving an inordinate amount of protection as a result of sanctuary policies, the liberal brain trust at one of the state’s largest universities has found a way to make sure that illegals get a $25.2 million free gift.
No, we’re not making this up.
Joe For America reports:
The University of California announced it created a $25.2 million school-sanctioned assistance package to help illegal aliens pay for their education.
Janet Napolitano, who serves as the president of the university, made it clear she’s steadfastly determined to cultivate efforts to use school funding to ensure illegal immigrants will have their college tuition paid for at the school.
“We are committed to continuing a path forward for undocumented students at the University of California,” Napolitano said.
“This funding will further strengthen the university’s undocumented student initiative, and help ensure that these students receive the support and resources they need to succeed.”
You really can’t make this stuff up. The state’s economy is a mess, and scores of taxpayers are fleeing as a result.
Despite that, money can still be found for illegals to get a free ride.
Unmentioned by Napolitano and her left-wing allies is that it’s a felony under current law to give illegal immigrants federal loans and grants.
But she’s more concerned with supporting illegals than hard-working, legal American families.
The package will be disbursed to several different university-affiliated groups, with $8.4 million going into programs who work to ensure illegals are given safe havens on campus.
The “DREAM Loan Program” will receive $5 million for the next three years. The school said it will allocate $2.5 million to fund fellowships and other financial support initiatives, including programs that pay for illegal aliens textbooks and school supplies.
In addition, the university will give UC’s “Undocumented Legal Services Center” $900,000, which will be used to provide legal advice and assistance to illegal immigrants.
It’s frightening to consider the fact that Napolitano served as the head of US Homeland Security for the Obama administration.
If she finds this nonsense policy to be a good idea, can you imagine what kind of decisions she was making while she was tasked with ensuring one of our nation’s most important institutions ran like clockwork?
We’ll take a small sense of solace from the fact that she can’t do any more damage on a national scale, but that doesn’t remove the bad taste that’s left behind from her ridiculous use of school funds.
