GUEST EDIT()RIAL Illinois' Dream Could Become Nightmare by Sal Giarratani Illinois is hemorrhaging jobs then enacts its own version of the Federal Dream Act setting up a college scholarship fund for illegal Students. Governor Pat Quinn has shown America once again why liberals run governments into the ground by signing a so-called piece of compassionate legislation that sets up schol- arships for any student with either a Social Security number or taxpayer identification card. The Land of Lincoln is driving businesses and jobs away through burdensome taxes and regulations but look on the bright side; the state is seeking to attract illegals in a state struggling to serve its own citizens. An estimated 95,000 children of illegals will benefit. In all transparency, the scholarships are privately funded and no state money is involved. However, a nine- member commission to dispense the scholarships will get state monies. State funds will also go toward mandated special sensitivity training for public school teachers on the needs of illegal immigrants. Why is it that encouraging illegal immigrants is such a cause cIEbre among liberals? Already, Illinois offers in-state tuition rates to illegal immigrants at public colleges which make it easier for an illegal student from Central America to attend a public college then a child of a Marine in Des Moines just back from Afghanistan. The proposed Federal DREAM Act essentially grants amnesty to any illegal residing in this country if they either enlist in the military or go to college. U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, sponsor of this foolish piece of legislation, says his bill would "make our country stronger." Durbin also calls it a "path to citizenship." The Investors Business Daily newspaper says, "A path that leads right past the U.S. Border Patrol." The ship of state is headed toward debt icebergs and places like Illinois are encouraging more illegals to come aboard. UN PUNTO IN TEMPO NE SALVO CENTO. A st/ch in time saves nine.
