SYNOPSIS OF SB2185
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the State Treasurer Act, the School Code, the Higher Education Student Assistance Act, and the Illinois Prepaid Tuition Act. Provides that the State Treasurer’s College Savings Pool must be available to any individual with a valid social security number or taxpayer identification number for the benefit of any individual with a valid social security number or taxpayer identification number, with an exception. With respect to a school service personnel certificate, provides that professional development activities must address the needs of serving students who are the children of immigrants, including, if the certificate holder is employed as a counselor in an Illinois public or State-operated secondary school, opportunities for higher education for students who are undocumented immigrants. Requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to establish an Illinois DREAM Fund Commission. Requires the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Senate, to appoint members to the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission; sets forth the responsibilities of the Commission. Requires the Illinois DREAM Fund Commission to establish, by rule, procedures for accepting and evaluating applications for scholarships from the children of immigrants and issuing scholarships to selected student applicants. Sets forth student qualifications for a scholarship. Requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to establish an Illinois DREAM Fund to provide scholarships. Provides that the Fund shall be funded entirely from private contributions.

Provides that the Illinois Student Assistance Commission may develop and provide a program of college savings instruments to qualifying Illinois residents (instead of to Illinois citizens). In the Illinois Prepaid Tuition Act, changes certain references from “social security number” to “social security number or taxpayer identification number”. Effective immediately.
Minuteman Comment: The game here is allow an illegal alien with a “taxpayer identification number” to get into an Illinois college or university. ANY illegal alien can obtain a taxpayer identification number. Most illegal aliens already use stolen Social Security numbers.
Notice how they use the phrase “children of immigrants” instead of the honest phrase “illegal alien minors.” SB2185 is designed to deceive. It is a carefully packaged lie.
The unspoken part of the Illinois Dream Act is their true intention. SB2185 is meant to be just the beginning of a process of piecing together a full blown Dream Act for Illinois. An Illinois version of Richard Durbin’s Dream Act that already failed in the Congress. First it will simply be “taxpayer identification numbers,” then the Illinois General Assembly will begin to slowly load the boat with more and more goodies and taxpayer benefits for illegals.
An illegal alien who gets a seat at an Illinois college deprives an American Citizen from that seat.
TAX TAX – SPEND SPEND – ELECT ELECT
What’s the real reason the General Assembly doubled our income taxes?
We’ve known all along that illegal immigration is primarily a redistribution of wealth program. A program that was quietly…silently implemented without debate, without discussion, without a vote.
The elites prefer to hire illegal labor because it is cheaper thereby enhancing their profit margins. Using illegal labor the elites can live a much nicer life style. But the elites who benefit from illegal alien cheap labor never pay the true cost…the true social costs of illegal immigration. The high crime rate, the drunk driving, the declining schools, the collapsing health care system, the drug cartels and their local affiliates standing on your corner. Those costs are transferred to the tax-paying middle class. While our communities are in decline the elites send their children to private schools in Switzerland…where they can be safe.
The Party Machine is aware they are all in trouble due to their immense tax increase. They know that in order to maintain power they must register every illegal alien to vote. The real reason ICIRR receives millions in taxpayer funds is to hire voter registrars for this purpose.
ILLINOIS MINISTRY OF PROPAGANDA
Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights is the Illinois General Assembly Ministry of Propaganda. The General Assembly spends millions of tax-payer dollars every year to fund this left-wing extremist group to “educate” the People of Illinois to accept illegal immigration as something desirable. The real reason the General Assembly funds this group is to continue the process of undermining constitutional government in order to consolidate power amongst the elite. So far they have been quite successful.
Call your Illinois State Representative and your Illinois State Senator and tell them you have had enough of the lies. Remind them that the November election is coming. Tell them to end all tax-payer funding for ICIRR IMMEDIATELY.
