COLORADO COLLEGES DOLE OUT BIG BUCKS TO ILLEGALS DURING CRISIS

Higher education redistributing taxpayer dollars to illegal aliens

By Eduardo Neret – May 19, 2020

As millions of Americans struggle with the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, a number of Colorado colleges and universities are providing aid to illegal immigrants and international students.

The Trump administration previously issued guidance barring these students from receiving funding through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

According to a report in the Denver Post, the institutions are providing aid to illegal immigrants from other sources.

Colorado State University spent $600,000 to provide $1,500 grants to 400 students. Of these students, 218 were illegal immigrants. The remaining students were those who otherwise did not qualify for CARES Act aid, such as international students. In a statement to Newsweek, CSU spokesman Mike Hooker said that funding for the grants came from “accessing state, institutional, and private funding sources.”

Metropolitan State University of Denver is raising $300,000 for students who are recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The school claims the money will be disbursed in payments ranging from $250 to $650 based on need.

The University of Colorado has a relief fund specifically for students who do not qualify for federal or state aid as well. A website for the fund states DACA students “will receive preference” for the financial aid, which can reach up to $1,000.

David North, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Campus Reform that while he has “no trouble” giving grant money to legal immigrants, he is “totally opposed” to grant money for illegal immigrant students.

“No one in illegal status should be PAID to stay in this country,” North said. “Though many of these students are decent human beings, there should be no reward system for lawbreakers, with a single exception. An undocumented student in a U.S. college who wants to return to the nation of origin should be given a one-way plane ticket, and maybe $500 (in a check cashable only in the home country and only cashable after 60 days in that country).”

CSU received more than $17 million in federal funding from the CARES Act, more than $8 million of which is allocated for direct student assistance. Similarly, UC received more than $36 million across all of its campuses, with more than $18 million meant directly for students.

MSU received more than $14 million in federal funding, with more than $7 million meant to be allocated to students.

COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR WANTS TO “PUNCH” POLITICAL ADVERSARIES “IN THE NECK”

Colorado State University Professor Wants to "Punch" Political Adversaries "In the Neck"

“I’m done going high”

JULY 8, 2019

A Colorado State University professor says she is done “going high” and is now ready to “punch” her political adversaries “in the neck”.

Professor OiYan Poon was responding to a tweet that stated, “when they go low, you fucking punch them in the neck”.

“I’m almost done reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, and in reading the subtext, I don’t think she even believes the whole “when they go low, we go high” b.s.,” tweeted Poon.

“Also, this tweet is a mood! I’m done “going high”. #ImReady to “punch them in the neck,” she added.

The phrase “when they go low, we go high,” was used by Michelle Obama in 2016 to encourage taking the high road against low blow tactics and dirty tricks by Republicans.

“Poon teaches higher education leadership at Colorado State and also serves as director of the school’s Race and Intersectional Studies for Education Equity (RISE) Center,” reports Campus Reform.

Poon previously complained that “there was not enough racial diversity in gifs”. She also praised her friend, activist Tanzila Ahmed, who was banned from the Tinder dating app for saying she would not date white men in her bio.

Following Campus Reform’s story on her comments, Poon placed her Twitter account on lockdown.
