Just what does Jose Calderon actually do? (Other than organizing lots of protests, it seems not much.) Take a gander at his latest quotation on why we should legalize 2.1 million illegal immigrants who go through our flabby education system.
Studies have also indicated that the DREAM Act "would help universities financially" and it "would not harm the American worker," and therefore approving it is common sense in this economic crisis, said Jose Calderon, professor of sociology at Pitzer College in Claremont.In Wikipedia editing, we would put a big "citation needed" tag on the claim that the DREAM Act "would help universities financially." Um.. how? By giving illegal immigrants in-state tuition at every state school, it would, in fact, hurt universities. Many of these universities are already in the red. Forcing taxpayers to foot the bill would certainly "harm the American worker."
There's more, of course.
"It would keep students in school, it would create a sense of belonging and it would benefit the nation. It is long overdue. We need the DREAM Act and we need it now," added Calderon.We tried amnesty in 1980. We got more illegal immigrants. Why is this overdue? Why would it "create a sense of belonging"? Why do we want students to go to college anyways? It's the next bubble, anyways.
