My ancestors came to America penniless and legally – through Ellis Island. Nobody gave them welfare or paid their way. They came here to be Americans, nothing hyphenated. They learned English, just like millions of other legal immigrants. E pluribus unum (Out of many one)
The push now is for Diversity. Think about it, exactly the opposite of how immigrants used to think! Google Diversity for the definition and root word. It takes awhile, but eventually the truth is there: http://hr.toolbox.com/wiki/index.php/Diversity:_Exposing_the_Myth,_Embracing_the_Truth
Higher education is the worst offender. ISU and the U of I are both paying legal expenses to import immigrants.
I did a FOIA with the University of Illinois, Urbana campus for legal fees pertaining to immigration: U of I-Urbana
Note: This is ONLY legal expenses paid with taxpayer dollars to import workers, other expenses may have been paid too. From 2014-2015 the U of I paid $22,681.23 to attorneys.
I also FOIA’d Illinois State, as did another citizen. She asked for all payments to attorneys for 2014-2016: FOIA Request – Legal Exp
My FOIA was for all payments made to attorneys with any connection to immigration for 2014 and 2015: legal services-1 (Look at the type of visa:H1-b)
The lists for 2014 and 2015 should have been identical, but they weren’t. My list for 2014 showed $3,190 more than the 2nd FOIA.
In 2014, ISU Immigration services cost: $34,648.45
In 2015, my FOIA showed $18,720.00, the other FOIA listed $24,335.24 as immigration
(So much for accuracy responding to FOIA requests!)
All but one charge on my FOIA was for a local law firm: Dunn Law Firm LLP. http://www.dunnlaw.com/practice-areas/
Why is higher Ed paying the legal expenses for immigrants? Diversity?
Know any students who paid for classes taught by teachers they couldn’t understand?
It’s common knowledge that higher ED isn’t a bastion of conservatism. Maybe Diversity is the problem. Your tax dollars are used to import labor from socialist, communist, and Marxist countries. I had a professor at ISU from a country that practices Sharia Law.
Pull out a quarter, look at the bottom of the front. It sill says E pluribus unum.
It probably won’t for long, now we are supposed to tolerate anything others believe. We aren’t “Out of many one” anymore. Coming to this country to be an American is now too much to ask. Cultures that violate our beliefs and laws are being re-created here, but we’re told to accept it.
Your tax dollars helped make that happen.
Is it really too much to ask legal immigrants pay their own way here – including legal fees?
(Let the hate comments begin!)
