Cynthia Tucker: Reform likely on immigration

Dec 16, 2012 Full story: Tallahassee Democrat 21

Among my colleagues at the University of Georgia is a small but hardy band of altruists who can't stand the idea that young people are being denied the opportunity to get a college degree for the dumbest of reasons.

She needs to stop B.S-ing and just state the obvious. The money these Universities will acquire from the Gov. for these students is to good to pass up. Here where I'm at the enrollment of American students have declined and they are desperately recruiting anyone,even thugs. American students have come to realize it is not worth the expense,the trouble and sacrifice; especially when there are no jobs.

She is certifiably nutz. She says that America is in need of skilled workers beyond HS!!! Then she talks about how wonderful "immigrants are for US. I am sure it is an oversight to not mention that mexicans have, by far, the highest HS drop out rate...how does that help?

Wasn't America doing just fine with our educated, tech savy Americans. Please note how freely people disparage the American worker, the people who created the country illegal aliens are trying to get to.

Finally, I would like to know where this poll is that says that 65% of Americans favor CIR.

If they keep saying the same thing over and over, you will start to believe it...sad!

Tucker has had her head up her ass for years. She was demoted, then fired, from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, a liberal POS, for incompetency and is now a professor at UGA ( that says something about UGA, doesn't it?). Everything is about race with her with all whites passing the role of villains. She is never right about anything. How could anyone, even an ignorant race baiter like Tucker, think we need thirty million people with backs that are wet in this country?

The majority of Asian students that you see on a college campus are exchange students from China, South Korea and Japan. Most of the colleges and universities here in the United States actively recruit in China signing agreements with colleges and universities there. Many of these exchange students have their US education subsidized by the U.S. State Department as part of foreign aid agreements.

Enforce our laws as they exist, period. These people should live in constant fear of our system and the fact that being here illegally has dire conseqences. I am sorry, but these parents should not be rewarded for their crimes. You are not supposed to be here. Deport..Deport..Deport.

You can say the same thing over and over, but it still does not make any sense.

The article is about people trying to go to college, but you rant about people being uneducated. Doesn't make any sense.

If it makes you feel any better, Mexicans are no longer the largest group of people coming into the country illegally. That of course would be Asians. The good news for you is they all go to college.

You pay for their education then. Mexicans are still the largest illegals in our country, you can twist all you want, but facts can not be disputed.

Who is paying for anybody's education? The article is about people trying to pay their own way through college.

Don't bother with the myth about "free" K-12. You know darn well that unless they are living in a tent somewhere, undocumented people pay the same property and school taxes as everybody else. They either pay it directly or indirectly through their landlord.

Obviously you are uninformed. I worked for Financial Aid and I know what freebies they are being handed. No sense in attempting to debate with someone who refuses to look beyond those scholarships.

I can't understand why they keep coming into this country, knowing how unwelcoming America is starting to realize the consequence of this behavior. Americans in General turn the other cheek to them, ignore them and give them very little respect, and yet they keep coming, on boats now, and we are simply running out of BP and Coastguard to handle it. Our military needs to be involved.All the returning from Middle east, good job's for them and the right thing to do. Illegals get grant's and scholarships set up for them specifically. Many do not pay a lug nickel as I explained. My family members work at local Colleges in Utah. Company's sponsor illegals in Utah as do Churches.Many are subsidized by many organizations that a pro-illegal.

Illegal Alien get All Grants, those grants avail to the American student besides those scholarships that most often don't cover the whole tuition.

Ronnie they also falsify their true income on the application for those grants (the lowest possible income in order to qualify for the ones American students so desperately need.)

Yeah, but, the fact is that there are Asian illegal aliens, but you wouldn't know it by the way they try to assimilate, fit in, and take care of their needs! It's the opposite on all of this for mex.
