There’s good news and bad news out of Massachusetts this morning. Yesterday I mentioned that a bunch of illegal aliens held a rally at the State House to demand in-state tuition to the Bay State’s colleges. Despite a phoned-in tip from me, immigration officials failed to show up and detain them.
This morning, there’s a followup on the bill. It’s a case of good news, bad news. The bad news is that the bill is expected to pass easily in both houses. The good news is that Governor Mitt Romney is expected to veto it (just like he did last year), and the backers say that they are “hopeful” to have the votes to override it. Translated from Political BS, that means they don’t think they have them, but they wanna go down swinging this time.
I fear that it’s only a matter of time, unless the federal government intervenes. Just a simple law or rule that says that no college that gives any sort of preferential treatment to illegal aliens is eligible for federal funding would work miracles…
