Height of hypocrisy on tuition, scholarships

May 11, 2011

Kudos to The Sun for two page one stories that clearly illustrate the hypocrisy of the Democrat-controlled legislature.

In the same session that the legislature rewarded illegal immigrants with in-state tuition breaks, it penalized hardworking, high-achieving Maryland citizens by revoking their Distinguished Scholars awards.

The net result of these actions will be to attract illegal immigrants to Maryland with services (educational, medical, etc.) paid for by taxpayers, and discourage the best students from remaining here during their college years and beyond.

Top students usually turn into productive, high-taxpaying citizens.

Other than pandering to Hispanic voters, can anyone justify this blatant hypocrisy? It's simply amazing!
