NY Dems block bill expanding college tuition for Gold Star families after approving $27M in tuition aid for illegal immigrants - report

NY Dems block bill expanding college tuition for Gold Star families after approving $27M in tuition aid for illegal immigrants - report | 12 April 2019 | New York Assembly Democrats on Tuesday blocked a bill that proposed expanding college tuition aid for children of deceased and disabled military veterans after -- having a week earlier -- approved a state budget that set aside $27 million in college tuition aid for illegal immigrants. The Assembly's Higher Education Committee voted 15 to 11 on Tuesday to shelve the bill, effectively quashing its chances of going to the floor, the Post-Standard reported. The decision came after committee chair Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan, and Speaker Carl Heastie said $27 million from the state's budget would go towards supporting the Jose Peralta New York State DREAM Act, which allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state aid for higher education, Newsweek reported.
