Hard-earned American taxes will be used to fund illegal immigrants’ education.

The hypocrisy of this government sickened me, Americans continue struggling to pay their outstanding student loans, while illegal immigrants received them for free.

Welcome to Joe Biden’s illegal immigrants’ First Policy!

Recently, a new law was signed by New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, New Mexico Opportunity Scholarship Act, the new law will provide scholarships covering tuition and fees at the state’s public higher education institutions.

Here’s what Lujan Grisham said in a press release:

“A fully funded Opportunity Scholarship opens the door for every New Mexican to reach higher, strengthening our economy, our families and our communities.” 

More detail from ‘Campus Reform’ who followed this story:

The law extends to illegal immigrants, The New York Times reports, in addition to prison inmates and students from “tribal nations” that extend beyond state borders.

The New York Times reports that the program will cost $75 million for the 2023 fiscal year, with “$63 million com[ing] from pandemic relief funds.”

Alternative funding will be needed after 2023, according to the newspaper.

Back in February Campus Reform reported:

Democratic lawmakers in New Mexico are proposing a bill that would make in-state residents eligible for free tuition at any of the state’s 29 public colleges and universities.

Titled the “Opportunity Scholarship Act”, Senate Bill 140 seeks to expand access to in-state public colleges and universities by allocating $85.5 million to the scholarship project. The price tag is set to provide full tuition for up to 35,000 students.

Students who are eligible to receive the state-funded scholarship include “New Mexico resident[s] who [are] enrolled or enrolling at least half-time in a public post-secondary educational institution or tribal college” within 90 days of graduating high school.
