A U.S. citizen is denied college aid — because of her mother’s immigration status

 

It's hard to keep up with the 'latest'  Liberal lie and deception but this was posted today.

 

Natalia Villalobos is a U.S. citizen, born and raised in the District. When she graduated 2015, she planned to enroll in college, study business and child development, and use those skills to open a day care where young children can thrive.

 

But when she applied for a city tuition assistance grant that would have helped her pay for classes at Montgomery College, the 19-year-old was turned away because her mother is not a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident.

 

DCTAG, the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), determined she cannot get the grant, even though she is a U.S. citizen, because of her mother’s immigration status. A longtime nanny, her mother has no legal route to apply for a green card, citizenship or asylum. DCTAG’s eligibility guidelines require that an applicant who is a dependent have parents who can provide proof of official residence in the District. Only U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, and asylees meet that requirement.

 

GTW - This isn't even a federal immigration issue, every city college in the nation requires proof of residency in their district.   Good try liberal pukes!

 

Is this a civil rights issue, an imaginary right of the dependents of illegal criminal aliens to receive De facto money from the government benefiting an illegal alien's household? 

 

Many of us 'citizens' who worked and paid for their own college will wonder what Ms Villalobos has done since she was turned down for free money and support. 

 

Let's make and keep immigration crime unprofitable!  

Always the first step in enforcing laws.

    I was denied aid twice because my dad earned too much & they didn’t care that he had no intention of helping me pay. I don’t think they ignore your parents finances until you’re 21.

      Careful how you think of “aid”. A grant is usually free money so family income is important to someone with an agenda. Scholarships, Fellowships, and others are usually based on grades or perceived needs of the society, or race. I went to college when all aid was reserved for “minorities”.

        I’m talking about a student loan, they wanted his name on the line & he wasn’t interested. Couldn’t get a Pell Grant because I wasn’t taking enough classes since I had to pay out of pocket for them as I took them.

      Exactly the same thing happened to me (a long time ago.) I ended up a ward of the state and they still didn’t give a shit. And I’m sure you’re equally distraught that there’s never been a ‘United Caucasian College Fund’ for poor white kids. If you’re white you have to pay it yourself because they just assume that because you’re white, you obviously are made of money and will never need help with anything in your lifetime. And even if you do, you still have to pay for all of the other white people throughout history that ever did anything wrong to anyone else on the planet. Today they at least can qualify for a Pell Grant to get some training or general education, but that wasn’t available when I was of “college age” and had a career ahead of me. And the Pell Grant will only get you so far, as well. It doesn’t pay enough to actually get a real degree, but will certainly allow one to get a diploma or certificate, even an AA or AS, but that’s pretty much it.

    “Born and raised in the U.S.” BUT, was she “legally” born and raised in the U.S. or illegal born and raised in the U.S.???

      She was born here, that makes her legal, her mother is not & they look at the parents’ ability to repay the student loans until the student is 21 or does some legal footwork to get the appropriate degree of separation. This is also an issue when it comes to getting instate tuition. I know someone who moved up here & had just cleared the threshold to qualify, but her mom moved up & she was under 21 so she was denied instate tuition until her mother had been here… 2 years I think. That’s just SC to VA everyone involved a native citizen.

        Maybe in YOUR opinion but, certainly not in mine. As I said before, if she was born here illegally then she is NOT a legal citizen and should NOT be given anything except deportation.

          It’s not a question of opinion, it’s Constitutional law anyone born here is a citizen regardless of who their parents are or where they’re from. Don’t like it pass an Amendment, it’ll get my support. I favor the requirement of a citizen parent in order for birth to convey citizenship.

    How is it that people can be illegally in the US and be employed? It is after all illegal to employ an illegal alien.
