Washington liberal elites love the fable that welcoming foreign students into US universities spreads American values on the cheap. The State Department in particular promotes student visas that directly harm US young people by displacing them from jobs (J-1 visa) to college slots.
The universities depend on foreign students writing checks for full tuition. And of [...]
The boilerplate Associated Press story about schools struggling to cope with illegal alien children dumped on them had little to recommend it, except for a fascinating new category of language instruction: Accelerating Preliterate English Language Learners (A.P.E.L.L) which appeared in a caption only.
AP caption: “In this photo taken Sept. 11, 2014, teacher Lori Ott, center, [...]
When immigrants come to America, do they think that “freedom” means an absence of standards for behavior and employment? Or are they arrogantly seeking to impose their values on Americans in opposition to traditional assimilation?
An example of the latter is the squawking from the diverse cab-driving community around the issue of hygiene, specifically the foul [...]
The University of California continues to increase its numbers of out-of-state and foreign students to pay full tuition. Each non-Californian pays an extra $23,000 annually, and the UC bean counters like that.
Monday’s Los Angeles Times article did not mention one unsightly ball and chain on UC’s finances, namely the subsidies provided by unwilling taxpayers to [...]
The United States is a big draw to young people from Red China looking for education, and as a result they are by far the biggest group of foreign students attending US universities — 29 percent in the 2012-13 academic year. (In that year, the number of “international” students was the highest ever at 819,644, [...]
In May, I reported hopefully about the California capitol city taking steps to improve its taxi service: Sacramento Requires Diverse Taxi Drivers to Speak English — Protests Follow.
Complaints had been accumulating about unpleasant smells emitted from diverse drivers and poor language skills, including one or two gripes per month from people who ended up at [...]
Life is easy for foreigners in America, where earlier assimilation standards are now considered mean-spirited. Liberal values mean immigration of various legality is all about newbie rights and nothing about their responsibility. These days the non-Americans hardly need knowledge of English to get their free stuff.
The medical field is already a free-fire zone for lawyers [...]
Tuesday’s front page of the Los Angeles Times had one of its cloying diversity fables about immigrant and refugee kiddies making their way in confusing America, titled “Their goal: A level field.”
The story concerns how the diverse students at Oakland International High School have taken possession of a baseball diamond and turned it into a [...]
Taxpayer-supported state colleges are supposed to provide a higher education at a reasonable cost to the young people who are residents. That’s why in-state students get lower subsidized tuition than outsiders.
But lately in California, not so much. The state’s university system has forgotten its mission to educate California kids in part because it is low [...]
It’s curious that immigrant Somali Barkhad Abdi has gotten so little publicity regarding his Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the film Captain Phillips, based on the true story of diverse piracy on the high seas.
Perhaps Abdi suffers from a lesser level of blackness in the Hollywood scheme of values, where historical slavery is [...]
Add to the list of Jobs Americans Won’t Do: parking ticket writer. The New York Times informs its diversity-appreciative readership that Bangladeshi immigrants are creating a mini-surge to take the jobs, at least 400 out of 3000 total.
The job pays $29,000 to start and has good benefits. Only a high-school education is required — why [...]
University elites must be happy with the new report from the Institute of International Education, which works closely with the State Department, showing that 819,644 international students came to study in American colleges during the 2012-13 school year.
The good news is the foreign students contribute $24 billion annually to the U.S. economy, which green-eyeshade folks [...]
