Subsidized Tuition for Illegal Aliens is Now “Tuition Equality”

The left has figured out that it can add “equality” to any terrible idea and make it more appealing. Forcing religious people to participate in gay weddings was “Marriage Equality”. Now subsidized tuition for illegal aliens who don’t pay taxes… is Tuition Equality.
And who could possibly be against “equality”? Only some sort of terrible person.
Obama’s Illegal Aliens aka DREAMERS are screaming that they want subsidized tuition in New Jersey. The In-State Tuition Bill/N.J. Tuition Equity Act is being kicked around.
In-state tuition is already a scam.
There are two New Jerseys. The New Jersey of the homeowners property taxed up to their necks and Cory Booker’s welfare New Jersey getting by on handouts. That’s part of what the senate election is about.
Christie ran as a pal of homeowner New Jersey. His actual track record has been much more mixed and there are reports that he’s preparing to sign on to welfare New Jersey’s tuition equality.
Immigrant-rights activists say New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reversed himself Saturday and endorsed giving illegal immigrants in-state college tuition rates, and said he will try to get the issue through his legislature in a lame-duck session.
“We need tuition equality for everyone in New Jersey,” the activists said the governor said in a speech to the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey.
Afterward, the activists said, Mr. Christie told one of them that, “We will get it done in the lame duck.”
Mr. Christie previously had opposed the federal Dream Act, which would have legalized illegal immigrant students and made them eligible nationwide for in-state tuition.
New Jersey press accounts said Mr. Christie said that would have amounted to “subsidizing” them with taxpayers’ money.
Giancarlo Tello, part of the New Jersey Dream Act Coalition, said Mr. Christie had previously, but privately, committed to the Latino Leadership Alliance that he would back the legislation, but this weekend he publicly tied himself to the legislation.
Mr. Tello said Mr. Christie has earned the backing of Hispanics in New Jersey, and he said that will make the governor a more formidable candidate in a GOP primary.
He has presidential ambitions and I think this will boost him, especially him winning a blue state and reaching across the aisle,” Mr. Tello said.
That says all there is to say about the disgraceful state of the Republican Party today.
