Colorado's New Instate Tuition Bill SB13-033 for Illegals is More Than Meets The Eye
There at it again in the Colorado legislature, Instate tuition for illegal aliens. Because they won both houses and the gov. office, they have loaded SB13-033 with other goodies. Coloradoans please contact your representatives and senators. Nationally if you know folks in Colorado ask them to contact their legislators.
I was the only one to testify at the State Sentate Education committe. Below is my testimony which will inform you of all the goodies in this years illegal alien gimme bag:
TESTIMONY ON COLORADO INSTATETUITION BILL SB13-033
Unemployment is at 7.8percent, the same as four years ago. Including those who have stoppedlooking for work it is 15 percent or more. Black unemployment isthrough the roof and Hispanic not far behind. Colorado is strainingunder the burden of providing services to illegal aliens directly andindirectly. This is a bad time for the State Legislature to provideadditional incentives to immigrants legal and illegal to come toAmerica at taxpayer expense.
Senate Bill 13-033 is anillegal alien college subsidy that provides one more incentive forillegals to cross our borders and diminish our resources. Thislegislation creates other problems as well:
- Its wording would allow any person legal or illegal to simply come to our state, take a GED, and get instate tuition to Colorado colleges. ( Loss of college funding over out of state tuition.)
- Illegals will be entitled to the Colorado College stipend as well as the opportunity funds. They can apply for publicly supported grants and financial aid. It also extends taxpayer supported health care benefits to illegals over eighteen.
- Though Colorado's reciprocity agreement with several States illegals will be able to come from other states and get instate tuition and benefits.
- The bill exempts persons receiving educational services or benefits from institutions of higher education from providing any required documentation of lawful presence in the United States. This preempt the safe guards for secure and verified identification previously passed by the State legislature. Educators no longer have to prove lawful presence when renewing their educators license.
Colorado's citizens wantillegal families to self deport. If this does not happen it is theresponsibility for the State and Federal government to reduce thesenumbers. There will be no economic recovery for struggling Coloradoworkers if we continue to entice immigrants and refugees intoColorado to drive down wages and steal jobs and benefits fromColorado's citizens. The students themselves run the risk of becoming white collar undocumented workers who will suffer the sameexploitation and wage discrimination experienced by low skilledillegal aliens.
This illegal alieneducational subsidy could be better spent on law enforcement, k12education, or be recycled through the economy to improve smallbusinesses and improve the quality of our citizens life. We urge youto vote no on this piece of special interest legislation.AMERICAN WORKERS FIRST -- A RAID A DAY KEEPS THE ILLEGALS AWAY

Good job, thank you for speaking out and reporting to us on this. I hope we can beat the illegals in Colorado again. We have beaten them before when they have had Dem majorities.
