Immigration Bill & Corporations That Give College Scholarships to Illegals

By Debbie Schlussel
You get rid of more bees with vinegar than with honey. So why are America’s corporations providing more honey to illegal aliens?
Today’s Wall Street Journal has an interesting article/sob story, “When the Corporate Scholarship Winner Is Here Illegally.”
We learned a lot from the article. We learned that a lot of American corporations help the illegal alien invasion by granting college scholarships (funded by profits from your patronage of their products) to illegal aliens.
We also learned that while illegal aliens can’t qualify for federal grants and loans to finance higher education, the Senate Immigration Bill would change that and make them eligible for your tax-financed college loans, too. They call this “The Dream Act.” But whose dream? Our budget is not unlimited. Helping their dream may take a U.S. citizen’s (a/k/a your child’s) dream away.

These Products Fund College Scholarships for Illegal Aliens

According to the Journal, while some companies–such as Coca Cola Scholar’s Foundation–prohibit illegal aliens from receiving their college scholarships, they don’t enforce it. That’s what happened with Hector Vega, an illegal alien, to whom Coke gave a $20,000 scholarship. Coke claims it won’t give scholarships to illegals, but Vega promised he’ll try to become legal. That sufficed. No more Coca Cola Blaq for us.
Are there no legal U.S. citizen high school grads worthy of scholarships? Ask MetroPCS, a Dallas-based cellular phone service company that doesn’t require credit checks for customers. That company also gave the illegal Vega a $1,000 scholarship.
And shame on the National Association of Secondary School Principals. It also showered the illegal Vega with $1,000. Know any high school principals? Ask them why they give scholarships to illegal aliens.
We also learned that the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, supported by Anheuser-Busch, gives out $25 million in scholarships, much of it to illegal aliens. It certainly gives new meaning to the words, “This Bud’s for you.” Don’t buy Anheuser-Busch, and let the company know why.
Our favorite was the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy used by Microsoft. The company specifically does NOT ask for proof of legal residency of scholarship candidates and recipients.
Ironically, the only company that won’t consider illegal aliens for scholarships is Wal-Mart. Yet the company is notorious for hiring illegal alien contractors and forcing subcontractors to employ illegals (as we detailed here and here). Hypocrisy-Mart.
If your company or employer gives out college scholarships, you should inquire whether U.S. citizenship or legal residency is required of recipients. And you should demand that it is.
To sum up, the following companies give college scholarships to illegal aliens (ask yourself if you want to finance this by continuing to by their products):
* Coca-Cola
* Anheuser-Busch Cos.
* Microsoft
* MetroPCS
* National Association of Secondary School Principals
We’re not for discouraging illegal aliens from becoming educated members of society. We’re for discouraging illegal aliens from coming to America in the first place and bringing their children with them.
These companies make their entry into and survival in our country easier and more attractive. Like we said, you get rid of more bees with vinegar than with honey.

Thank you Debbie for keeping your many readers informed on this and other important topics with regard to national security and the welfare of our nation. We all want to do the right things and we are all in this together. But we are running out of time. Most of us can readily see the dangers of radical Islam because they are actually producing killers that murder us. They have made us very aware that we are foolish to tolerate them among us. However, this was not always the case. It all started back in the 1950s when they were considered a peaceful and hard-working people worthy of employment-immigration into Europe. And they were. But things changed. Their children and grand children became and are becoming radicalized via Islam. We’ve seen this, even before the 50s in Israel, of course, but it is now spreading throughout the Western world.
Our current immigration problems here in the US ARE related. We are following the EXACT path of Europe and for the SAME reasons. The only difference is that most of our soon-to-be-citizens will be of Hispanic descent (although millions of more Muslims will be admitted too). And if anyone thinks they can’t be radicalized then they have missed what is going on in South America — thanks to our utterly worthless Media! We are approaching real trouble with all of this. Trouble that once done, will not be undone.
Some of us are working behind the scenes but I love you, Tammy, and Michelle for doing your part! Here are a couple of very good links for everyone to visit:

Please everyone get involved to whatever degree your circumstances allow!

O.K. talk till you try and say the mexicans also are part of it as the religion of peace is.Then you sound only as a fool

Absolutely right! We need to watch what the corporations are involved in and proceed accordingly. If that means boycotts, then let’s get with the program.

I think these corporation can give money to whoever they want, it’s their money anyway.
Talent and success don’t require numbers, or matters the place of origin.
If I once become really rich, I would give scholarships to illegals that seem to have potential, all they need is a chance.
