SCP

In-State College Tuition for Illegal Immigrants

103 posts in this topic

This country's life blood has and always will be immigrants. Capitalism's basic building block is a working class driven to succeed and innovate. Regardless of your personal feelings on it, we need these people as much as they need us and they fill a massive whole in our economic system. Everyone benefits from their education. Middle class kids don't want to be engineers and chemists, they want to be artists and musicians. We still need engineers.

yes, but the assumption that they all live that way ignores the SCORES of people scpanther apparently deals with, who crowd into a house, send all their money back, and don't spend a dime on themselves.

As opposed to staying in their own countries, where there is no money to be made, where they can watch their spouses and children die of starvation right in front of them without the possibility of doing anything to stop it?

i can see why someone like you would think that.

Please help me out with the "someone like me" part.

It sounds mildly condescending, which is funny coming from someone like you.

Where in this thread did I ever assert their lives are vastly better here? You're the one throwing that word around.

Not really, their quality of life is still vastly better here than it is wherever they came from. Many die with a car, clothes on their back, years of living with indoor plumbing. Just because they don't own a mansion or wield ridiculous levels of political influence doesn't mean they didn't achieve some greater level of success by coming here.

And that last post takes us right back to vastly.

Guess I'm not as philosophically challenged as the Fizzer thinks.

Oops.

sales tax

illegal immigrants are also a large percentage of those that buy lottery tickets which are essentially a voluntary tax

Wasting money on lottery tickets and begging for a discount on college tuition.

Makes sense.

Nah, you'd just change the subject with a request for a link or your old standby, the baseless personal attack.
