Emory University rewards law-breakers

Emory University will now fund 100% of financial aid to students who are in the United States illegally.  It means that if you are in the country illegally, you are rewarded for breaking the law, while Americans who are working hard to attain a college education receive no such blanket aid.

Like so many things these days, it's inverted, upside-down, and backward.

Breitbart reports:

"Emory meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for undergraduate Undocumented Students (with or without DACA) who are admitted as first-year, first-degree-seeking students, and who graduated from a U.S. High school through a combination of grants and scholarships, institutional work study (DACA students only), and institutional loans. Undocumented Students without DACA status may receive an institutional loan in place of the typical work study award," the university's website states.

Speaking to The College Fix, Megan McRainey, a spokeswoman for Emory, claimed that providing full financial aid relief to undocumented students reflects the university's commitment to welcoming students from diverse backgrounds. ...

International students, who are not afforded the same aid privileges as undocumented students, will be forced to foot a $70,000 per year tuition bill if they wish to attend the prestigious Georgian university.


It's one of the left's favorite buzzwords that they pull out of the hat to rationalize all manner of insanity.

(Also, notice how the university's statement capitalizes the term "undocumented students," elevating them to new heights [as if giving them a free college education isn't enough].)

Taking a short walk down memory lane, readers may recall that last year, some students at Emory University were traumatized by the words "TRUMP 2016" written in chalk on the pavement.  Their "safe space" was violated, they were "in pain," and they demanded action!  This they got, when university administrators pledged to get to the bottom of who wrote the "controversial markings."  The drama was of epic proportions, with protesters chanting the words of a cop-killer as they ranted about their pain and, ironically, their commitment to fighting for freedom (here and here).

So this is Emory University.  Where illegals get a free ride, Americans pay through the nose, and chalk is a dangerous weapon.
