Student loan debit is burying a generation. At the present time the country has a student loan debt of $1.4T. Americans are burdened by excessive student loans. Fees for attending college has risen 200% in 30 years.
The purpose of calling this out – why don’t these college help out our citizens by forgiving their debt instead of rewarding illegal immigrants a free pass which is worth $69,502/year.
This college received a whopping $384 million in federal funding in 2017. This is taxpayer money. Why won’t they share with our citizens by telling the government to take the money and help our young people forgive their loans instead of giving it to illegals.
If that is not palatable even half would help. If the colleges won’t share tell the government to only give half of the money to the colleges and cancel out the loans of our young people.
This is not fair when our parents worked hard for the money the government is giving to these colleges to throw away on illegals.
Elite College Rewards Illegal Immigrants, Charges U.S. Citizens

One of the most elite colleges in the country launched a new program to give free tuition for illegal immigrants, even as they continue to charge full tuition to many U.S. citizens.
Emory University, located in Atlanta, launched a new program called “Need-Based Financial Aid Program for Undocumented Students, including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) Students.”
According to Emory’s Financial Aid website, the program provides “all undocumented students (with or without DACA)… financial aid funds to assist them in meeting their demonstrated need.”
Emory’s tuition for the 2017-2018 academic year is $69,502, including living expenses.
Curiously, Emory bans what they call “international students” from applying to this program – even if they attended a U.S. high school. Meaning that even legal immigrants, who are in the U.S. on a temporary legal visa, are not eligible to apply for the program.
The program isn’t Emory’s first time flouting U.S. immigration law, despite receiving a whopping $384 million in federal funding in 2017. Last September, the university’s administration signed onto a letter demanding Congress pass a so-called “DACA fix,” which would allow more than a million illegal immigrants to stay in the United States legally.
