    Right, but what I am saying is that you won't know that. All you will know as a student is that you aren't accepted. You can guess at why, but you will never know for sure.

    Second, are you a wealthy person? Because if so, I'd like to see what you have. I think I might be entitled to some of it.

    I am by no means wealthy but I live quite comfortably. I don't begrudge paying my taxes, because I'm aware that they are necessary for the overall excellent quality of life that we take for granted in this country. I'd even pay a few percent more if it meant that more people could afford go to school or go to the doctor, or if it meant putting more police officers on the street or throwing a lifeline to people who need it. I am a direct product of those lifelines, if my family hadn't gotten help (before I was even born), I would never have been able to get the education that I did, and I wouldn't be where I am now. My father has long since repaid his debt to society, and so have his siblings. I've also done my part. This is why I take great personal offense when people say such awful things about those who receive "entitlements." I've seen the word "leech" used to describe people who are in the same situation my father was, over and over, on this very board.

    Education is everything. Someone with a good education is far more likely to succeed and become a productive member of society. An illegal immigrant trying to go to college isn't the immigrant you should be worried about. They're making an effort to make something of themselves, to become a member of this society. To contribute. They'll even pay taxes, if you let them. Like I said earlier, I disapprove of some of the things illegal immigrants sometimes do when they get here. Going to school is not one of those things.

    Then explain the scholarship genius.

    I already graduated college (18 years ago). I've worked a job since I was sixteen. I owe a business in CA that employs people.

    I wouldn't qualify to take the test I described. Would you?
    Anyone who thinks its logical to allow illegals to attend our schools needs to have their head examined. So if your position is that we keep the smartest folks and deport the rest, I'll get your ticket ready.

    So explain the OP. Do you support it or not?

    Oh and J-mac is right about the univsity of Maryland. They have some powerful people at that univsity fighting for illegals to get access to the university



    Casa representatives also hope to meet with the University System of Maryland’s Board of Regents to push for policy changes allowing in-state tuition for children who graduate from a state high school, regardless of their parents’ immigration status.

    Bills that would have prevented the regents from offering in-state tuition to children of illegal immigrants died in committee..

    Um, thats the whole of it. So you don't support illegals getting scharships and positions at schools in the US or not?

    Um, no it isn't. The article says it is eligible for students hold green cards, student who have permanent residence in the U.S., and illegal immigrants. So I am fine with scholarship money going to the first two, but not the last.

    The only thing I have been arguing is against illegal immigrants. Was that lost on you somehow?

    They should park an INS agent full-time outside the Financial Aid office in the building. That way when someone comes in and says "I'd like to apply for the illegal immigrant scholarship", they can arrest them.

    Hell, you don't even need Arizona's subjectivity to make that arrest. Takes the bricks out of the briefcase.

    My bad then. When you said that's the whole of it I thought you meant something else. That is what I get for studying and being on here at the same time.
