Illegal Immigrants Demand Tuition Break

See if you can figure out what’s wrong with this picture[1]:

More than 100 people rallied yesterday in front of the Statehouse Annex, urging state and federal lawmakers to allow children of undocumented immigrants to attend college at in-state tuition rates.

The smaller-than-advertised, but loud, crowd chanted in English and Spanish as students spoke of college dreams snuffed out because their parents illegally took them to America when they were young.

Ozge Ozler, 18, of Cinnaminson wanted to attend Rutgers University or Temple University but is ineligible for student aid or in-state tuition because her parents illegally emigrated from Turkey.

…Camden activist Angel Cordero, 45, led the crowd in fiery chants of “Si, se puede” (“Yes, we can”), “Latinos unido jamas seran vencidos” (“United Latinos will never be defeated”), or simply, “Not fair.”

We’ve now gotten to the point where non-Americans, who are in the country illegally, are out in public, demanding, in Spanish, that they be given things. Meanwhile, we have plenty of politicians in Washington and across the country, from both parties, who believe we should cater to these people instead of deporting them in accordance with the law.

That is absolutely, bughouse nuts. You go to Mexico, Turkey, Venezuela, anywhere else in the world that you like — illegally — and then start walking around in the street demanding that the government of that country do things for you and see what happens. Oh, and tell us what the jails look like when you get deported.

Illegal aliens have no right to be here, no right to work here, no right to go to our schools, no right to get services from the government, and no right to demand anything. If they want rights, they should go back to their home countries, where they’re citizens, and demand things back there.
