    CA-Rohrabacher blasts illegal immigrant scholarship

    Rohrabacher blasts illegal immigrant scholarship
    May 27th, 2010, 5:50 am · 19 Comments · posted by Dena Bunis

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is incensed that Santa Ana College is establishing a scholarship for illegal immigrants . He has written a letter to the school’s president saying if they proceed with this ,their federal funding could be in jeopardy.

    The $2,500 matching scholarship is being created in honor of Tan Ngoc Tran of Garden Grove, a former Santa Ana College student and immigration activist who was killed in Maine on May 15 by a drunk driver.

    In his letter to college president Erlina Martinez, Rohrabacher said while Tran’s death is tragic, “channeling our scarce resources to illegal immigrants, even if they are students, is unforgivable at a time when so many of our citizens and legal residents are struggling to meet their own education needs.’’

    Read Register reporters Deeptha Bharath and Cindy Carcamo’s story on Tran’s death and the scholarship.

    Tran was a crusader for passage of the DREAM ACT, which would allow illegal immigrant students to get legal status.

    Rohrabacher, R-Costa Mesa, also said the scholarship dedicated to illegal immigrants is “an affront to law abiding citizens whose tax dollars will pay the bill.’’

    Rohrabacher tells Martinez that giving such money “to law breakers by rewarding them with scholarships exhibits a misguided set of priorities for Santa Ana College.

    It is not just the scholarships. As a parent of a student attending a CSU let me tell you these students are fighting to get needed classes. They are so impacted that many kids are not able to get in classes they need for their majors. Illegal aliens are attending our schools taking up the spot in classes needed by American students.

    Our college kids are already getting a double whammy caused by illegal aliens and their anchor babies. So once again lets reward illegal behaviour with a new scholarship.

    White American children are discriminated against everytime they want a higher education. Just scroll through scholarship list and you will see most are ethnic scholarships. I would bet that alot of the Hispanic scholarships don't even require proof of citizenship.

    Montereysherry, you are so right. With limited spots in universities and in the courses they offer, it is ridiculuous that any of them are being occupied by people who cannot even legally work with the degree they seek. Make room for qualified Americans! And for the record if you set up a scholarship that was for people of Anglo-Saxon descent it would be shot down and rejected immediately as racist. Double standards and hypocrisy--gotta love liberal politically correct thinking!
