Blankenbush slams DREAM Act

ALBANY, NY — “Handing out free tuition aid to illegals when the average recent college grad is walking around this state with nearly $40,000 of debt is an insult. Hardworking citizens sacrificed, saved and bet on themselves with real skin in the game. Their parents played by the rules, sometimes taking second jobs and taking on second mortgages to send them to school. The fact that we’d ask these taxpayers to pay for illegals to go for free is just wrong,” said Assemblyman Kenneth D. Blankenbush.
