    "This week, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a bill to require the state's public universities to give undocumented aliens -- generally illegal -- in-state tuition privileges.

    The bill, known as the Dream Act, is already the law in ten other states, including California, New York, Texas and Illinois.


    Affirmative action benefits can be substantial. A study of selective universities by Princeton sociologists Thomas Espenshade and Alexandria Radford found that listing one’s race as “Hispanic” instead of ‘White” increased the likelihood of being admitted by the same amount as scoring an extra 130 points on the SAT. Compared to Asians, the study found, Hispanics receive a 240-point advantage."

    “Residency status is not taken into consideration at all in the admissions process,” he also noted.However, the data show that Hispanic students admitted to the University of California system had lower GPAs and SAT scores than White or Asian students who came from families with similar incomes. For example, admitted Hispanic students whose parents made more than $120,000/year had an average SAT score of 1749, while Asian students with parents making that much had an average of 1890, 151 points higher. For Whites it was 1844."

    People everywhere, regardless of who they are or what background they come from should be simply outraged. It also appears Asians are getting shafted the most in this particular case!

    Isn't it interesting how every state listed as participating in this nonsense has the worst debt and financial situation of them all?

    I suppose since we thought that since you think Universities are worthless anyway, we were perplexed as to why you were bothered who went to them.

    It's okay, since you've already taught me not to be surprised anymore by the idle conjurations of your fertile imagination.
