There’s extreme contrast between how red states and blue states are reacting to the increased influx of illegal migrants under the Biden administration. Frustrated with the crowds of illegals crossing the border, Texas has decided to start shipping apprehended aliens to Washington, DC. Florida promises a similar approach, vowing to send the state’s illegal immigrants up to Biden’s home state of Delaware. But if we turn to New Mexico, they’re pointing migrants to the college campuses, saying, “It’s on us!”
After Democrat governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed the New Mexico Opportunity Scholarship Act, 35,000 illegal immigrants, incarcerates prisoners, and “tribal nation” students will be eligible to go to school on the state’s dime, reports Campus Reform.
The scholarship program will cost $75M in 2023, $63M of which will come from pandemic cash handed out by the federal government. How college scholarships have anything to do with a pandemic that is effectively over, I cannot understand, and I’m sure no one in New Mexico’s government will bother to explain, either. Just know that taxpayer dollars that were supposed to aid in ending the pandemic were held onto to give illegal immigrants free college.
