...after Rockies owner Dick Monfort publicly stated his support for the Tuition Equity Bill:
"I am a Republican. But I don't even know how a Republican could view this as not a good thing."Other republicans show that they do not value education, like State Senator David Schulteis:
Monfort said it is senseless to spend the money to put children of illegal immigrants through the public school system only to deny them the final step. A college degree, he said, "allows this student to make something of his life."
"Public schools from kindergarten through high school are already required by federal law to educate all children, regardless of their immigration status," Schultheis said in a recent statement. "Higher education, on the other hand, while coveted by some, is not a prerequisite for making something of oneself in America."So his logic is that since you can make something of yourself without attending college, you should maintain discriminatory practices that push immigrant students out, often because you take the liberty to claim they don't belong to the only country they have ever known. Real classy, Schulteis, specially since you yourself seemed to value education when you attended Occidental College, the University of Minnesota and Cal State LA. (Source: his resume)
