if these things were done without loopholes, progress would be made. This party is almost totally artificial in that it depends on all of its voters get paid off. The voters that don't went to the Repub party.

Nothing new here.
In early '30's Germany the "feds" took Public Education out of the hands of the Local Govt and the Parents. BHOs'proposal is to withhold Fed $$$ if the University doesn't embrace "progressive social engineering" as a valid mantra taught and masked as "Education".

Very good for Big Brother/Big Govt/Big Union
Indocrination in the religion of Progressivism.

How sad for our Country. How sad for our children. How sad for us all.

College aid is a massive game. Getting it for nothing and playing the system as an example to go to school, then quit and then start again, then quit and then start again always reapplying do to class lifetysle can be part of the living off the taxpayer way of doing things. Package that with all of the other programs and viola, the sucka that puts in a forty hour week is on the hook and may be living less of a life then the collector.

So let's get this straight...

Colleges and universities have to dumb everything down to accomodate the affirmative action students and yet nobody can figure out why US schools have the lowest scores around.

Really!?!

Hmmm, don't know what the problem could be...

Yada yada yada.........Americans VOTED to be less than last November. We all must surrender and submit our families to the WILL of The Obama? You must shelve basic common sense to support the Progressive Agenda.

Obama's appointees, even those promoting a race war, are saying that even the young people showing a definite mental incapacity in their ACT scores (19 out of 20 Blacks) should get their college edumacation free.

Once again Obama is babbling and jumping into something that he does not understand. Because he is intellectually bankrupt his only solution is to create another government program. More government, waste and fraud will be the result.

Obama's ratings include "Progressive Social Engineering" as a criteria. Will the Madness ever stop? Are the American people really ignorant enough to continue to fall for His tripe?

The first-in-the-nation law was passed by the Texas Legislature in 2001 with Perry's support. Perry says the bill has enabled thousands of additional students to get a college education, but some of his Republican opponents have condemned the law, saying it rewards illegal behavior.

"The intent of the law was to have more kids go to college," said Noriega, who is now president and CEO of Avance, a nonprofit organization that promotes educational advancement in at-risk Hispanic communities. "It's been incredibly successful."

Perry, he said, "recognized that it was good public policy, and it has been."

The law, which has since been emulated in other states, makes in-state tuition available for children of illegal immigrants who have lived in the state for three years, graduated from a Texas high school and sign an affidavit that they will get on track to get legal residency and U.S. citizenship.

Thanks, gringo Perry.

Poor teabagger.
