Parents of ‘illegals’ must fix tuition issue
I reject the notion that everything bad that happens in the world is my fault.
Somehow, I have to rescue kidnapped school girls in Nigeria. I have to search for some airplane that disappeared departing Malaysia. Somehow, Iraq has gotten quiet, don’t know how that happened? And, the editorial board of the Tribune and many others want to believe that the reason illegal aliens can’t get resident tuition is because I am standing in the way.
Not so. The United States has a Constitution that spells out various legal requirements. Derived from this Constitution is a legal system that clarifies and helps enforce those legal requirements. These are called laws. When you don’t like a law, we were provided with a way to change it.
But not today; today we ignore the law. We say: “Oh, boo. These poor people didn’t cause this. Why should they have to pay?” We hear almost daily about students who were brought here illegally and now can’t get resident college tuition rates, even though they grew up in this country. Why not?
Because they are here illegally. Their moms and or dads brought them here years ago, illegally. And despite the fact that it was years ago and Mom or Dad could have fixed the issue, they didn’t. And now it’s my fault.
No one is willing to enforce the Constitution and the legal system. Barack Obama won’t, no politician will stand up, TV news won’t do it, and the editorial board of the Tribune won’t do it. I like the Yahoo news headline today that says, “In Obama’s White House, the buck stops nowhere.”
The law is what keeps us all equal. Its application is supposed to be blind. I say, let’s blindly enforce the law.
