Minnesota will soon start offering state taxpayer-funded college and university tuition to illegal aliens from families earning less than $80,000 annually, at no cost to them.
The inclusion of this provision in an annual education funding measure was approved by Gov. Tim Walz at the end of last month. As a result, taxpayers in the state will soon be responsible for covering the expenses of free college tuition for eligible illegal aliens.
Approximately 140,000 illegal aliens currently live in Minnesota.
As part of the measure, native Minnesotans will also be eligible for the tuition-free program, similar to many other states. However, eligibility is generally limited to legal immigrants and American citizens.
”We want to make sure that when we’re expanding opportunities for everybody, we’re doing it for all Minnesotans, regardless of background, regardless of their documentation status,” Minnesota State Sen. Omar Fateh said.
The significant expansion, funded by taxpayers, for illegal aliens comes as Gov. Walz recently made the state’s driver’s rolls accessible to illegal aliens.
The legislation, supported by Democrats, will enable approximately 77,000 eligible illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses, granting them legal permission to operate a vehicle in the state.
Driver’s licenses for illegal aliens are vital for the open borders lobby because when illegal aliens are pulled over by local police, driving without a driver’s license is the first criminal charge that can put them in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.
