Showing a generosity of spirit, Emory University made the exciting announcement that they would fund 100% of financial aid packages for illegal aliens based on need.
No comment from international students in the country legally who have to fund their own education.
Although international students are expected to pay full tuition, undocumented undergraduate students at Emory will have “100% of demonstrated financial need” covered by the university.
“Emory meets 100% of demonstrated financial need for undergraduate Undocumented Students (with or without DACA) who are admitted as first-year, first-degree-seeking students, and who graduated from a U.S. High school through a combination of grants and scholarships, institutional work study (DACA students only), and institutional loans. Undocumented Students without DACA status may receive an institutional loan in place of the typical work study award,” the university’s website states.
Speaking to The College Fix, Megan McRainey, a spokeswoman for Emory, claimed that providing full financial aid relief to undocumented students reflects the university’s commitment to welcoming students from diverse backgrounds.
“Emory accepts undocumented students for admission and financial aid, including those under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program,” McRainey wrote, adding that providing financial aid coverage to undocumented students aligns with Emory’s goal of welcoming “students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds.”
International students, who are not afforded the same aid privileges as undocumented students, will be forced to foot a $70,000 per year tuition bill if they wish to attend the prestigious Georgian university.
The solution is simple. If you’re a citizen of another country in the U.S. legally on a student visa, drop out of school, sneak back into the U.S. illegally, and reapply at Emory claiming you’re “undocumented.” Forget all those fuddy-duddies who might say it’s not fair that someone who broke the law to get here is entitled to benefits that law-abiding students aren’t eligible for. You’re behind the times, man. Get with it. Illegals are the new black — it’s so cool to be undocumented.
Of course, there won’t be much opposition from international students here on legal student visas. They know to keep their mouths shut lest they arouse the SJWs to single them out for harassment. Illegal aliens are a favored “oppressed” people and saying anything against them marks you as a racist/xenophobe/imperialist.
Face it. You’re just not “diverse” enough to rate a freebie at Emory.
