Why Tuition Equity Matters
By Lupita Maurer of Aloha, Oregon. Lupita Maurer was born in Mexico City. She became a U.S. citizen and a Democrat in 1995. She was a member of the Oregon Council for Civil Rights from 2009-2011 and was recently appointed to the Oregon Commission on Hispanic Affairs by Governor Kitzhaber. She is a member of the Democratic National Committee.
After seeing most Mexican women in my family divorced, abandoned, and without a solid career to support themselves, I decided my ticket to a secure economic future would be an education.
Democrat women have done such a bang up job convincing men that they can be cads.
I was visiting my mother when I decided not to return to the university in Mexico. She was living here legally in the United States, but not doing so well economically. So I remained, and started working with her cleaning houses. It was honest work, but our life here was vulnerable and scary, because I overstayed my tourist visa.
You are now "vulnerable" if you are a criminal. If you have a warrant out for your arrest are you also vulnerable?
Then, the California Supreme Court and the Cal State University system gave me my big break. The Court decided that undocumented immigrants are eligible for in-state tuition rates at the state's colleges and universities rather than pay the higher rates charged to those who live out of state.
This country gave me the opportunity to get ahead, opened its arms to me.
No one opened their arms to you. You took what you wanted without permission. This whole piece is one big example of selfishness. Millions of people wait in line for what you got and you decided to just take it.
This also puts to bed the notion of the poor 2 year old brought to this country unwillingly. This person CHOSE to come here, CHOSE to stay illegally and then benefited from taxpayer subsidized college tuition.
