At a town hall in Des Moines Monday, Barack Obama told illegal immigrants to apply illegally for federal school loans, loans which are funded by the U.S. taxpayer.
He is very generous with our money.
A student in the audience, probably a plant, said, “My name is Toya Montoya. If you legalize free two-year college, is everyone, including illegal students with a good G.P.A., able to get this?”
Obama responded by telling him to fill out the form anyway. He probably tells the bureaucrats screening the forms to ignore the fact that the applicants are here illegally. It’s not his money he’s giving away. We are borrowing 40 cents on every dollar but that doesn’t phase him. Many citizens can’t afford college for their children, are going into debt to fund it, and have to pay for illegal immigrants too.
“This is an important question. I know this is a debate taking place among presidential candidates. Right now, the way the federal student loan programs work is that undocumented students are not eligible for these loan programs. That is how the law is currently. It is my view — well, two things I want to say. First, if you fall in that category, you should still fill out the forms because states or universities or colleges may have private scholarships or other mechanisms. So it does not automatically mean you may not qualify for some benefits. It is still important for you. That is a standard form used by everybody.”
He didn’t explain how we are going to pay for everyone to have two years of free college for everyone, even people here illegally.
At the same town hall, he said there is no place in the budget for cuts. Maybe he could cut the funds for illegal immigrants. America’s economic future is endangered by excessive spending, borrowing, taxing, and inflating. Instead, Congress continues to waste taxpayer money and Obama continues to look for ways to spend more.
