John Morton, Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is implementing an ongoing amnesty for illegal aliens. One of the aspects of this amnesty is the special privilidges that Morton is giving to illegal aliens college students. This is in accord with his and the Obama Regime's support for the DREAM Act, which is amnesty for all illegal aliens under age 35. Despite the fact that the DREAM Act has failed to pass Congress since 2001, Morton and DHS have been illegally and unconstitutionally implementing the DREAM Act as an aspect of their administrative amnesty.
Jessica Colotl and Eric Balderas are just two examples of illegal alien students who have been granted amnesty by Morton. Pedro Ramirez is another example of the DREAM Act amnesty. (h/t American Power)
The California Supreme Court ruled on Monday to preserve Assembly Bill 540, California’s state law that allows undocumented students to pay in-state tuition.
This ruling will affect Associated Students, Inc. Pedro Ramirez, also undocumented, who is serving as the Fresno State ASI president without pay.
The Collegian recently received an anonymous e-mail questioning the legal status of Pedro Ramirez. Ramirez confirmed this information.
Ramirez will not be the only one to benefit from the ruling. According to the Los Angeles Times and KMPH Fox 26, AB 540 will benefit 231 Fresno Sate students and 25,000 students in California.
These students will continue to pay $2,115 per semester. If the law was repealed, undocumented students would pay out-of-state tuition, which is almost doubled.
As an AB 540 student, Ramirez cannot receive federal or state aid. Because of his legal status he cannot be employed in the United States.
Ramirez said that ASI administrators were aware that he would not be paid for the ASI position, but he willfully accepted it as a volunteer position.
There has been speculation that the university is paying Ramirez through ASI scholarships. Ramirez denied such speculation as being false. He affirmed that he signed a legal waiver stating that he would not receive payment for his position. However, he said that he received a $50 cell phone stipend two weeks ago.
Ramirez decided to take the position because he wanted to make a positive difference for students at Fresno State.
“I thought I could make a possible impact to clean up the organization and use whatever resources and power that we have to benefit the student,” Ramirez said.
“I’m going to graduate soon,” he said. “What am I going to use my degree for? And in the next few weeks they will be voting on the only hope that I have,” Ramirez said, referring to the DREAM Act.
Interestingly enough though he allegedly decline the pay that goes with the position of student body president, but accepted a $50.00 celluar telephone stipend. Well, that makes him illegally employed as well.
Call Charles DeMore, Special Agent in Charge of the San Francisco ICE office and let him know about Ramirez. You should also remind SAC DeMore that the Republicans control the House and will be taking the Senate in 2012. He might face impeachment for his failure to act. And, consequently the loss of his pension.
