Not that I’m surprised someone as far-right-wingnut as Del. David Ramadan would bash “DREAMers,” but it’s still awful, mean spirited, nasty, stupid, ugly, wrong, etc. Basically, this is about taking kids who are now pursuing their dreams of higher education and YANKING THEM OUT OF COLLEGE. Great, huh?  

HB 1356 In-state tuition; students granted Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Action

…In-state tuition; students granted Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Declares that absent congressional intent to the contrary, any person granted Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services does not have the capacity to intend to remain in Virginia indefinitely and, therefore, is ineligible for Virginia domicile and for in-state tuition charges at public institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth.

    …and therefore, in a convoluted way, good.

    Whenever the crazy GOP does things like this, it speaks volumes about whose side they’re really on.  They’re on the side of providing “management” with cheap, oppressed, and uneducated “labor”.  Democrats are on the side of the future of our country: young people, seeking to achieve and rise as citizens.  Pretty straightforward.
