Illegal immigrants can go to college

People should not mind that illegal immigrats are attending college. I think people who oppose the latter, have views that tend to based on a more prejudice level. For those who think their tax dollars are going to help support the education of an illegal immigrant, you're wrong. Illegal students attending college do not recieve govt' financial aid. They may, however, apply for scholarships to help pay for college tuition, books, etc. Most of the time, even scholarships require prospective students to be citizens, in some cases scholarships are open to any prospective student regardless of citizenship status. Mind you, these scholarships are mostly funded by donations, made by companies, corporations or even individuals. Most legal students rather sign up for govt' financial aid, than take the time to research scholarships available to them and submit the required documents, which many times compose of an essay and other paper work. So if you're one of those who thinks you're paying for an illegal immigrants education, hope you are a bit relieved, if not, then I suggest you do some research. People should not base their "knowledge " on t.v or media "facts." Im am quite tolerant and accepting of other peoples views. I'd love to hear some feedback =)  (Nov 3, 2010 | post #147)
