    You left this part out, Texmaster. Maybe because it doesn't support your case?
    Weidner repeatedly emphasized to FoxNews.com that no public funds would be used for the scholarship.
    Private donations for the scholarship. Now you're against people spending their money how they want? Talk about a reversal in ideology.

    public university

    They still have to use the schools's facilities and are still illegal

    denying legal citizens the same access

    You support this?

    Not for a second. Do you understand this is s public university and the facilities being used are public by illegals?

    Are you going to answer my question? Why do you support a program that will deny legal citizens the same opportunity?

    Ok try to keep up. The number of students is not unlimited. If you allow illegals to join this university which they will use public facitlities not matter how much private money they receive they will be denying a spot for legal citizens.

    Explain why you support this.

    Because people can do what ever the hell they want with their money, it is their money to donate.

    If you have an issue with foreigners getting educated and "limited space in schools" this is focusing a laser on one spot in the ocean, our schools are LOADED with foreigners, ones who have no intention of staying in the US after they get educated, and some that may.

    If you have the money, and the ability, there is no issue getting a college education, noone is going to get denyed a spot over this.

    Tex has this exactly correct. My daughter whom graduated two years ago with a 3.8 was denied a spot at the University of Maryland due to this very thing.

    So giving money to men who believe its ok to rape women would be ok with you?

    Please do not lie about my position. I said I have a problem with ILLEGAL immigrants not foreigners.

    If you have the money, and the ability, there is no issue getting a college education, noone is going to get denyed a spot over this.
    Wow. How deliciously ignorant of you. So no one is ever denied a college position even though space is limited and you support illegals taking those positions. Unbelievable.

    I did enjoy your irony. If they have the money. Um hey chuckles, its a scholarship. So the legal citizens who apply are looking for the same money you want illegals be eligible to apply for.

    Your daughter doesn't count. She's just a dirty play by the rules legal citizen. Didn't you get the memo?

    Talk about impatient. You asked the same question 3 times in 3 minutes, getting angrier at the lack of an answer. Why do I support this? The way I see it, the more money that goes to education the better. If there's a larger demand, universities will expand or new ones will be built. That wonderful free market can adapt. I suppose my feelings on this stem from my belief that our immigration policies should be much more open. If you don't have valuable skills, a bunch of money, or a family member here, you have virtually no chance of being allowed to become a citizen. The only crime these people are guilty of is seeking a better life for themselves. Honestly I place illegal immigration as a crime on about the same level as underage drinking. I don't encourage it but as long as it's done safely I don't really have a problem with it. Someone working hard enough to get good grades deserves a chance. That's what America is supposed to be about, right? Opportunity? A $2500 scholarship can be a huge difference in someone's life if it gets them an education which leads to a career as opposed to menial labor.


    edit: As I wrote this you equated illegal immigration to rape. Really? I mean, really?
    There's a lot of things illegal immigrants sometimes do once they get here that I disapprove of, but going to school isn't one of those things.

    A lot of illegal immigrants in Maryland? Did the rejection letter tell you "sorry, we gave the slot to an illegal immigrant."
