Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy


Rate this Entry

Daily Kos reports on a hearing in Kansas regarding repealing a law that allows all residents to seek in state tuition at the state's universities. Really, there's no need to even comment on this - it's obviously appalling and should make people in Kansas immediately donate money to whoever is running against this guy.

REP. O'BRIEN: My son who's a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn't qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid. My son was kinda upset about it because he works and pays for his own schooling and his books and everything and he didn't think that was fair. We didn't ask the girl what nationality she was, we didn't think that was proper. But we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country. [...]

REP. GATEWOOD: Can you expand on how you could tell that they were illegal?

REP. O'BRIEN: Well she wasn't black, she wasn't Asian, and she had the olive complexion.

    So by his definition white people are illegals along with folks with olive complexion!

    This explains why immigration is completely broken in this country. Lawmakers such as Connie O'Brien sit on committees , write and vote on bills using their own prejudices and stereotypes , instead of understanding issues and making sound decisions based on reality and what is best for the country.

    So, his son comes from an affluent family, which disqualified him from needs based aid. He also did not qualify for any merit based aid. He was upset that someone qualified for aid (we don't know if this was merit or needs based, but we know that illegal children don't qualify for either), and got upset. So, now of course, it is the illegals (i.e. olive skinned people) who stole all wealthy Americans financial aid. So, now they want to disqualify other kids from paying in state tuition. Like father, like son.

    May be she is part American Indian and feels that whites should leave America (sarcasm here!)
