Now turning to -- UCL why offering an education to illegal immigrants the director of the California school center for labor research and education.
A former service employees international attorney by the way has announced the formation of what he calls national -- university.
To be considered for admission the applicant must demonstrate.
What is called a commitment immigrants -- labor rights as well as social justice you don't have to be an illegal -- to apply but it apparently helps.
35 students will be accepted -- online courses costing 65 dollars a credit.
The new school partnering with the National Labor College that's the nation's only accredited higher education institution devoted explosive.
-- educating union members and leaders.
-- ranking senate Republicans tonight voicing concerns over the bass range of welfare programs now offered to illegal emigrants.
They've written a letter to Department of Homeland Security secretary Janet Apollo -- of secretary of state Clinton.
Demanding answers joining us now Chris -- Secretary of state of the great state of Kansas co author of numerous state anti illegal immigration laws it is great to have you this -- first your reaction.
If it if you will to the formation of a new.
A new educational center at UCLA.
By a former attorney of the service.
Service employees that are -- Well I guess.
I am surprised that the audacity of it but not surprised that the substance and -- I don't know if you noticed -- but the price they're charging to illegal aliens to.
At ten deaths were on line.
Is actually less than US citizens who are in state in so it's not -- not only has California now given in state tuition to to illegal alien -- to attend in person.
They're giving better than instate tuition to illegal aliens who attend on line.
I mean it it just rhetoric of sort perhaps that you're you're being altogether too suspicious.
Perhaps -- simply reflects the higher efficiencies -- the digital world rather than.
And that their brick and mortar -- I'll.
-- -- -- -- I guess but they're charging more for their citizens to -- today it's just operate.
Well Chris let's turn -- other what you may call an outrage and that is that the promotion of food stamps and in tandem with the Government of Mexico.
The Obama administration backing off that apparently ostensibly at least trying to make it appears so.
The news with the decision Friday to to do a dump if you will on the national media and congress no longer in session.
To inform that they were proceeding.
To give pieces to an estimated.
Or from in the Pew Research Center.
About one and a half million.
Illegal immigrants sixteen to thirty years of rage.
-- well let's look at the the food stamps issue first this administration is actively promoting the use of food stamps.
By aliens here in the United States presumably promoting it just illegal aliens although increasingly wonder if they're promoting -- for both legal and illegal.
But again the administration's ignoring federal law in 1996 with -- welfare reform act congress put a provision federal law that says if you are an alien here legally.
You have to wait five years before you can get any federal welfare -- -- I'm a country this administration's -- they're advertising encouraging people to get on food stamps and this is a problem because.
It's long been American immigration policy for centuries -- for more than a century.
That we don't bring public charges -- -- its people to Nazis were gonna be dependent on the government you have to be able to support yourself.
Bump in the country this administration.
Seems to want aliens to get on the public goal and you probably if my with the study in 2009 and -- at 57% of aliens.
Are already up some form -- welfare compared to 32% of citizens.
It appears the Obama's -- want to drive that number higher.
Well it's also.
It is also being presented and marketed as an incentive for further illegal immigration.
Because working in tandem with the Government of Mexico where as you know.
The last -- I -- 46% of Mexican citizens say they want.
To move to the United States -- the opportunity presents itself.
Someone argued that that opportunities being presented by the Obama administration.
Your reaction to referred to Friday's.
Well a couple things one is that -- hearkens back to what Milton Friedman said he says it's obvious you can't have open immigration and welfare state.
Think about that if the border is open.
And Mexico has no social safety net to speak -- and yet here we have extremely generous one provided by American taxpayers.
And the borders relatively free to allow illegal aliens in and -- then get welfare.
If it causes the breakdown of the American system and encourages further violations of our immigration -- so.
He helped -- treatment had -- right years ago he said that in and here's this administration.
Taking steps that I think are designed to increase the size of the dependency class in America they want.
-- individuals who will eventually become US citizens to already be dependent on welfare for pure political reasons because they believe that those individuals will vote Democrat for their lives.
Because that will be the party that provides the welfare.
And very quickly we're out of time but there and the reaction so far from the Republican Party not much.
Up from the broader public not much from the national media as you might expect not much is this effectively the creation of -- an -- I hope.
Because the bottom line is the administration appears to be breaking federal statutes Wednesday its full of no wonder why do I think -- primate groups.
There there's no sense insisting the reality and if you will.
Embracing hope and change.
I mean the reality presents itself.
-- do you think that is the reality.
I think the reality yet -- -- it is a reality that -- breaking federal law and so far they seem to get away with it but it is possible to stop -- in court if the plaintiffs that sport.
And it's also possible for congress to do something about it if they have the courage and hopefully -- will.
I heard -- highly hypothetical.
All choirs of all of that.
And some hypothetical one specific -- I'm -- medical.
That that strains even hope and change.
Thanks so much good have you with all.
