    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Announces $33 Million in Scholarships for 1000 Illegal Immigrants

    Billionaire Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has announced that he will be donating $33 million to create college scholarships for 1,000 DREAMers — illegal immigrants brought into America by their parents.


    Politico reports that Bezos, the billionaire CEO of e-commerce giant Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, will be donating $33 million alongside his wife MacKenzie Bezos to create college scholarships for illegal immigrant DREAMers. Bezos donation is being made to TheDream.US, a nonprofit group founded by the former owner of the Washington Post, Don Graham. According to TheDream.US website, the group is “working to help over 4,000 highly motivated DREAMers graduate from college with career-ready degrees. DREAMers are immigrant youth who came to this country at a very young age without documentation.”

    Bezos donation is expected to cover scholarships for approximately 1,000 illegal immigrants who are currently still in the country under the Obama-era DACA policy. Bezos himself is the son of a legal immigrant, the Amazon CEO’s father arrived in the United States from Cuba at the age of 16. Bezos commented on his donation to TheDream.US saying “MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today’s Dreamers by funding these scholarships.”

    As the “Dreamers” as they’re known, are illegal immigrants, they are not eligible to receive financial aid from the federal government, TheDream.US aims to offer these students up to $33,000 in financial aid spread over four years of college study. Currently, the nonprofit group is funding approximately 2,840 illegal immigrants to study in the United States. Bezos has joined 100 CEO’s, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Apple CEO Tim Cook, in signing an open letter to the government requesting an extension for DACA.


    This is one of Bezos’ first forays into philanthropy, the CEO has donated to some causes in the past, at one point being honored by the Human Rights Campaign for donating $2.5 million to support marriage equality in Washington State in 2012, but overall his portfolio of charitable work is quite small. In June of 2017, Bezos took to Twitter to request suggestions from users on philanthropic efforts he should take part in. “I’m thinking I want much of my philanthropic activity to be helping people in the here and now — short term — at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact,” stated Bezos.

    But "no money for the dreamers" who are US citizens in our inner cities.

    They would rather fund and support criminals who are in this country illegally.

    Maybe Doctor Ben Carson should give Bezos a call and tell him just how many inner-city kids that would help!

    Stop aiding and abetting and rewarding ILLEGAL ALIENS!

    Exactly. And based on the amount and number of scholarships, it looks like he's giving them $33,000 a piece. That's a lot.

    I know, that really burns me up. Jeff Bezos is a disgusting individual. I am never buying anything from Amazon ever again.

    We need to support our retail stores. We need to tell them what's wrong with the way they're doing business. Hiring illegals and foreign workers who don't speak our language well, who don't understand our questions, who don't connect with us. They need to HIRE AMERICANS, redesign many of their stores, teach their employees to drop everything when they see a customer and offer assistance, and NEVER make us wait to pay. NEVER.

    Judy, I ordered a new couch through Costco. It went from Texas to San Francisco then to us. I was surprised when the delivery truck showed up two hours early. Then two Mexicans carried it into the house. I was angry when I realized one did not even speak English and I had a hard time understanding the main guy. That is until they started talking about Immigration on Fox News. All of a sudden I heard this Mexican screaming at the TV, telling them to close the border and get rid of all the illegals. I looked at him in shock and said you want the border closed. He said yes he was all for it if they would get rid of all the Chinese. He said he delivers all over California and he is tired of having to put up with the rude Chinese. He said they are not nice like Americans, that they are rude when they deliver and tell them to get out. I had to laugh, but I am still trying to figure it out.

    LOL!!! That is so funny, MontereySherry!!

    I think now is the time for Trump and Republicans to call for a 10 to 20 Year Moratorium on ALL Immigration. I think a lot of Americans will stand up for that and help him achieve it. There are a lot of Democrat voters who vote the party line but don't really support all this stupid immigration fanaticism. It defies common sense when you or someone you know can't find a job and teachers haven't had raises for 10 years even though property taxes have soared for decades due to rising real estate costs due to overpopulation pressures resulting solely from uncontrolled massive immigration into the US, legal and illegal.
