A resolution passed by the student government at the University of California, Irvine, seeks to give admissions preference, housing, and funding to totally unvetted college-aged Syrian invaders.
Breitbart The resolution (R52-12), which passed unanimously in the student senate on October 18, must be reviewed by the senate advocacy committee before it is passed along to university administration. If approved by the administration, the bill would provide admission preference, housing and funding to college-aged Syrian refugees.
The bill cites other universities who already participate in similar programs such as Illinois Institute of Technology, Bryn Mawr College, Michigan State University, and the University of Southern California.
Members of the UCI student body are questioning the willingness of their student senators to make such a significant decision behind closed doors. UCI College Republicans President Ariana Rowlands expressed her concern about the process by which this decision was made.
“I have no problem with Syrian refugees receiving education. I have a problem with a closed student government politically and artificially endorsing policy measures that limits the ability of every prospective UC Irvine student to attain one of a finite amount of seats at this university by favoring non-American MUSLIM students over American students.
This top-down decision made by the student senators behind closed doors has yet to be announced publicly and does not represent the student body of UC Irvine but rather, represents the social justice objectives of the elite,” Rowlands said.
“As long as there is one American citizen that, despite meeting qualifications, cannot get into a university or receive a scholarship due to difficult circumstances, we have no room to help non-Americans receive a higher education using our education system,” Rowlands added. “We need to help our own people with want first.
Taking seats away from deserving American citizens and giving them to refugees is just political pandering at the expense of citizens already here, further requiring them to look to government for a handout, in turn furthering government’s power.”
