States offering in-state college tuition rates to illegal aliens — but not to all American students — are brazenly violating federal immigration law.Currently, 12 states – California, Texas, New York, Utah, Washington, Oklahoma, Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico, Nebraska, Maryland, and Connecticut – are circumventing this unambiguous federal prohibition, while the Obama administration turns a blind eye to their violations.

New details are emerging surrounding the death of an 18 year old who committed suicide this weekend.

 

Joaquin Luna’s death has captured national attention after the family told Action 4 News Joaquin killed himself over immigrant concerns and the Dream Act.

 

Tuesday, sources close to the investigation reached out to Action 4 News claiming that is simply “not true.”

 

They said the suicide letters left behind did not mention Luna’s concerns over the Dream Act or his immigration status.

 

Sources went on to tell Action 4 News Joaquin left behind eight to nine letters each dedicated to people close to him including his sisters, brothers and even his best friend.

 

We asked the family about the claims.

 

They admit, they haven’t seen the letters, but said they’re sticking to their belief that he committed suicide because he feared his future as an undocumented immigrant.

 

Luna’s cousin told Action 4 News before Joaquin took his life Friday night, he had mentioned he wanted a better life but couldn’t have one because of his legal status.

 

But Joaquin was an “A,” “B” student at Juarez-Lincoln High School and Principal Clem Garza said staff saw a different side of Joaquin.

 

She said he never mentioned the Dream Act or showed signs that he didn’t believe he would be able to attend college or have a career.

 

“The signs that he exhibited were ‘I’m determined to make it’” said Garza.

 

Garza showed us his college essay and even an email sent by Joaquin earlier this month indicating his plans to send the essay to different universities in hopes of getting scholarships.

 

The school counselor told us he was still in the process of sending those essays.

 

Staff and students remain baffled as to why he would take his life.

 

They said he had shown motivation and determination to go to college and become an engineer no matter what.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A day after a 14-year-old boy was murdered in his family’s apartment, Mayor Angel Taveras, state legislators, city councilors and other community leaders crowded into the Providence police weekly command staff meeting to talk about what they could do.

Mayor Angel Taveras is the child of Dominican Republic illegal aliens: the boy (the police and family can’t agree on his age) is from the Dominican Republic too. Instead of removing the illegal alien breeder mother and her five violent gang banger illegal alien boys, Taveras would rather remove  the 2nd Amendment right from law abiding citizens to protect themselves from illegal alien gang bangers.

There’s an old saying popular among liberals and leftists: “Anti-Semitism is the socialism of the stupid.” The aphorism attempts to account for the troubling resemblance of the main propaganda line for socialism — there is a small, infinitely powerful, infinitely wealthy cabal at the center of society that controls the entire economy — with the other propaganda line that there is a small, infinitely powerful, infinitely wealthy, Jewish cabal at the center of society controlling everything. According to this flippant dismissal, only a stupid person would distort the shining truths of socialism by muddying them with theories about race or religion.

Rep. Barney Frank will be remembered for three things: First, he was not only the first openly gay member of Congress but the first involved in a gay-prostitution scandal. Second, he said, “I do not want the same kind of focus on safety and soundness” regarding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as exercised with regard to other government-affiliated agencies, preferring, as he memorably put  it, to “roll the dice a little bit.” Third, he was co-author of the Frank-Dodd financial-reform legislation. Which is to say, Representative Frank will be remembered as an embarrassment, a reckless gambler, and a legislative malefactor. Continue Reading
