Anybody who reads the news has seen the left trying to make us feel sorry for poor little old ILLEGAL ALIENS because they can't legally steal, er I mean attend, college in the USA.
Yesterday it was poor picked upon and abused Jessica Colotl, an illegal from Mexico who was pulled over for driving without a license. She was a senior at Georgia's Kennesaw State University. Fox News reported: "The twenty-one year old was flagged as an illegal and deportation proceedings were started." Predictably, many on the right wanted her ass booted out of the country a.s.a.p., while the left thought it wasn't "fair" that she be deported, since she was such a good student, she had not chosen to come here, her parents had brought her, blah blah blah (retchhhhh).
The end result? "Kennesaw State University officials said they reached out to the federal government on Colotl's behalf and she was granted a deferment to finish her education."
Today, cue the sad music, get out the hankies for another sad story of a poor lass unable to attend college, even though she has a wonderful G.P.A. from high school, because, you guessed it, she's the daughter of wet backs. Here, we even have a picture of poor little Gladys Castro boo-hooing.
"FONTANA - Gladys Castro has all the numbers needed to get into UC Berkeley - except one."
"Although the 17-year-old Kaiser High School senior carries a 4.09 grade-point average and has been accepted to the university, she cannot apply for government loans because she's an illegal immigrant and doesn't have a Social Security number."
"I don't know how I'm going to pay for school," she said. "All I want is a chance..."
"Castro smiles wide and talks fast when asked about her plans to major in political science at the campus she has visited three times."
"But the reality of having to pay more than $30,000 in fees per academic year often quenches her enthusiasm to the point of tears, leaving her to ponder a future without a college degree."
Predictably, some on the right aren't so forgiving:
"California has already dumped $100,000 in free education (on her)," said Robert Rector, a senior research fellow at the Washington, D.C.-based Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. "If you want to be tough about it, you can ask for it to be repaid."
Just as predictably, some of the left feel differently:
"Castro has worked with Latino activist groups such as the left-wing Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles to gain support for the proposal."
"A lot of people see us as criminals," she said. "I don't see myself as a criminal. How am I a criminal at 8 years old, when I had no control over my life?"
"Rep. Joe Baca, D-San Bernardino, agrees."
"It is wrong to unfairly punish those young people who come to America through no fault of their own," Baca said.
Okay, kiddies, one last example. Wait, what? Something about this last example is out of place. It's a white dude. An American citizen. He, too, just wanted a good education. He, too, was a great student, good enough to be accepted into Harvard and then to seek the school's endorsement for Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships. But alas and alack, the white dude had lied on his application. From Mail.com:
"Adam Wheeler, 23, of Milton, Del., was admitted to Harvard and became a student in 2007 after he falsely claimed he had earned a perfect academic record at Phillips Academy in Andover and had studied for a year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology..."
And how did those liberals in Cambridge treat this poor young WHITE male, a legal citizen, who was just trying to better himself? Pity? Compassion? Ugh, no. They threw the book at him.
"Wheeler was indicted on 20 offenses, including larceny, identity fraud and pretending to hold a degree. He was arrested Monday by Massachusetts authorities and scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in Middlesex Superior Court."
"This defendant's actions cheated those who competed honestly and fairly for admissions and for the scholarships that this defendant fraudulently obtained," Leone said.
Granted, this young man is no saint, but the irony is just dripping off these three accounts. "He lied?" [Said in self-righteous indignant voice, preceded by "Haruuumph!"] " Baaaad. Prosecute the bastard!" "The two girls entire lives were lies?" [Said in compassionate, kind, loving voice, preceded by gushes and sighs.] "Good. They are just trying to get ahead. So what if the USA pays for their education? So what if they take a spot that someone else was denied? It's the right thing to do!"
Thus endeth the lesson in how liberals operate.
