College Prep Aid Expanding to Illegal Immigrants

In a baffling move, the Biden administration is about to hand over $1.2 billion in college prep money, meant for low-income and first-gen students, to illegal immigrants. This plan, cooked up by the Department of Education, completely flips the script on who gets access to Federal TRIO programs, which were never meant for illegals.

At a meeting on Feb. 9, big decisions are going down about letting illegal immigrants into TRIO programs, which have been off-limits to them since 1986. These programs, funded by our tax dollars, are supposed to help over 800,000 students who really need it, offering things like tutoring and financial advice.

Now, suddenly, the roughly 100,000 illegal immigrants graduating from U.S. high schools each year might get a piece of this pie. And don’t forget the 600,000 more in K-12 right now. Emalyn Lapus from the subcommittee is all for this in states like California, where they're more open to undocumented students.

This move by the Biden administration, as reported by Campus Reform, to give TRIO benefits to illegal immigrants is just wild. It's like they're totally ignoring the rules and the real people who should be getting this help. It’s a massive shift that’s got a lot of folks asking: what about the legal residents and citizens who are supposed to benefit from these programs?
