Every politician takes care of his base.
Biden’s base just happens to be illegal. In more ways than one.
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona on Tuesday finalized a new regulation that allows colleges to distribute tens of billions in federal pandemic relief grants to all students, regardless of their immigration status or whether they qualify for federal student aid.
The final regulation, set to be released Tuesday by the Education Department, replaces a policy that then-Education Secretary Betsy DeVos enacted through an interim regulation last year.
The DeVos rule said that colleges could provide federal Covid relief funding only to students who qualify for federal financial aid. That definition inherently excluded undocumented students and international students studying in the U.S., as well as some U.S. citizens who do not qualify for federal financial aid for various unrelated reasons — for example, because they have a defaulted student loan or a drug conviction.
Democrats and their media are perversely celebrating taxpayer money being stolen for the use of foreign students, criminals, and illegal aliens.
That, in a nutshell, is what the Democrats stand for.
It’s too bad that Republicans can’t seem to manage to clearly and cogently nail them for what they are.
