Illegal Immigrants to Get State Tuition Rates in Massachusetts

When he’s not sucking up to First Lady Michelle Obama by paving over potholes in advance of her arrival, he apparently is busy sucking up to illegal immigrants – just like his muse, President Obama.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is pushing a plan that would allow illegal immigrants in his state to be awarded the tuition rate at colleges typically granted to actual state residents – and it’s based on the President’s own pro-amnesty angle.

Via the New York Times:

Thousands of illegal immigrants living in Massachusetts can qualify for state resident tuition rates at state colleges, under a policy laid out on Monday by Gov. Deval Patrick — another shift in the fast-changing mosaic of states’ policies toward that population.

The shift builds on the Obama administration policy, adopted in June, that the federal government will not seek to deport most young immigrants who, as children, were either brought to the United States illegally or kept here illegally. The Massachusetts policy applies to that same group.

Notice how the Times article leaves the word ‘illegal’ out of their headline, despite its relevance to the article information.

The savings being afforded the illegal immigrants is substantial, with in-state residents at one Massachusetts college being charged $13,230, while out of state residents pay nearly double.

Essentially, people having entered the country (let alone the state) illegally can now attain tuition rates that actual American citizens from outside of Massachusetts would not be privy to.

Good News! NY Stops Unemployment Checks to Illegal Immigrants and Dead People

August 1, 2012 at 11:14 am (Dead People, Deceased, Illegal Immigrants, Labor Department, New York, Non-Working, Thomas DiNapoli, Unemployment, Working)

We’re starting to get a warm fuzzy feeling here again in New York State.  A sense of pride is being restored. It was just over a month ago that New York made it illegal once again to view child pornography.  (Yes, it had actually been legal, so long as the porn was not downloaded or printed).

And now state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has put a halt to unemployment checks being delivered to working people, illegal immigrants and the dead.

Good news, of course.  The bad news however, is that over $1 million in unqualified unemployment compensation has already been paid out.

Via the AP:

New York state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli says he has stopped $1.4 million in unemployment checks written out to working people, illegal immigrants and the dead.

But DiNapoli says nearly $1 million in checks to people who didn’t qualify for unemployment checks has already been paid by the state.

The comptroller says among them are 91 recently hired state workers who owe the state $105,000 for overpayment of unemployment benefits.

After finding the errors, DiNapoli says he advised the state Labor Department to tighten its controls to make sure the critical aid gets only to New Yorkers who qualify.

DiNapoli says the Labor Department didn’t even seek to recover $383,000 in overpayments because a year had lapsed.

The Labor Department says it will tighten its controls.

DiNapoli also stated, “In these challenging fiscal times, state agencies must watch their spending closely.  Clearly that isn’t happening when payments are sent to deceased people.”

The report can be read here…

Almost makes you fall in love with New York all over again.

Shades of 9/11? TSA Allows Illegal Aliens to Attend Flight School Owned By Illegal Alien

July 19, 2012 at 9:00 am (9/11, Flying Lessons, Illegal Aliens, Illegal Aliens Attend Flight School, Illegal Immigrants, Janet Napolitano, Massachusetts, Pilot License, September 11th, Transportation Security Administration, TSA, WTF)

If you thought a story from earlier this week that 9/11 terrorists had won the right to postpone their trial due to religious consideration was insane, then you’re going to love this story.

Filed here under, WTF?

The government organization known as the TSA, charged with securing airports and preventing terrorist attacks similar to 9/11, has been allowing illegal aliens to take flying lessons at a flight school owned by an illegal alien.  

CNS News reports:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved flight training for 25 illegal aliens at a Boston-area flight school that was owned by yet another illegal alien, according to the Government Accountability Office.

The illegal-alien flight-school attendees included eight who had entered the country illegally and 17 who had overstayed their allowed period of admission into the United States, according to an audit by the GAO.

Six of the illegal aliens were actually able to get pilot’s licenses.

So while TSA agents are actively scouring crotches in every major airport in the nation, pulling 80-year-old women aside, accosting 4-year-olds for allegedly harboring guns, and dragging disabled children aside for interrogation, potential terrorists have been roaming the skies freely, honing their craft in a potential steel missile.

Now where have we heard of this before?  Oh, right … 9/11.  Oh right … this guy …

The worst terrorist attack on American soil in history, and our government hasn’t learned that lesson.

All-American Blogger writes:

What in the world is going on in the Transportation Security Agency? How do you not only know about this and not send in Janet Napolitano and Janet Reno over to give the group the Waco treatment?

How can these incompetent nitwits claim to be keeping the skies safe? How can the look the American public in the eye and tell them another Mohammed Atta isn’t training for another 9/11 style attack in America today?

He is right, of course.  Nobody in this administration can tell the American people that they are safe in light of this news.

The report itself confirms this:

Stephen Lord, who is the GAO’s director of Homeland Security and Justice Issues, testified about the matter Wednesday in Rogers’ subcommittee. Rogers asked him: “Isn’t it true that, based on your report, the Transportation Security Administration cannot assure the American people that foreign terrorists are not in this country learning how to fly airplanes, yes or no?”

Lord responded: “At this time, no.”

Although the illegal alien who owned the Massachusetts flight school had not undergone a required TSA security threat assessment and had not been approved for flight training by the agency, he nonetheless held two Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pilot licenses, also known as FAA certificates.

Somebody needs to be fired over this.  Unlike that other major national security scandal Fast and Furious, somebody needs to be held accountable.  And it starts at the top.
