Helping those with complicated lives

I suppose this is standard fare at all the universities now:

UC Riverside is hiring a full-time program coordinator to assist undocumented students at the university.

Money for the new position comes from $5 million in funding that UC President Janet Napolitano announced in October to provide counseling, financial aid and other services for undocumented students throughout the UC system.

UCR Vice Chancellor James Sandoval said in a statement that the new post will help meet undocumented students’ distinct needs.

“Undocumented students face many unique non-academic challenges and the position is critical to promoting the educational interests of this population,” he said.

Committee member Ana Coria, an undocumented student who graduated from UCR in June, said having a full-time staff member to assist undocumented students will help them succeed.

“We live complicated lives with multiple identities,” said Coria, who was president of PODER, a UCR group for undocumented students. “It impacts how we do academically.”

  1. Hello.

  2. Does this mean I can get in state tuition if I just lose my TX drivers license? Perhaps into law school without proving I ever took the LSAT or, indeed, providing any transcripts?

    That’s undocumented!

  3. My multiple identities usually try to speak all at once too. One at a time works best, but it is rare to get consensus. Hence my application today for $5M…

  4. I mean, I can create multiple fake identities, too, if that’s what it’s going to take.

  5. I like to create identities for each of my multiple personalities personalities. One of them is named Trini Lopez.

    I can’t prove how that guy got into this country.

    That means I’m eligible for this, right?

    If the fact I don’t speak much Spanish is going to be a problem, I can just give you the fake ID for the guy who walked all the way from Belize just to sneak in. Or so he tells me.


    I was reading an article in which Ruth Bader Ginsberg was saying more stupid things on top of the 35 pages of stupidity she wrote dissenting from the Hobby Lobby decision. And something dawned on me. Here’s one thing she wrote:

    Religious organizations exist to foster the interests of persons subscribing to the same religious faith. Not so of for-profit corporations.

    Shouldn’t she have to recuse herself from the Little Sisters of the Poor case when when it reaches the SCOTUS? Because (hello! Ever hear of Mother Theresa who ministered to the poor in Calcutta where there are no Catholics but Muslims and Hindus?) Catholic religous orders do NOT exist to foster the interests of persons subscribing to the same religious faith.

    If she has already formed an opinion that is hostile to the centuries-old purpose the Little Sisters of the Poor, how can she rule impartially?

  6. …for each of my multiple personalities personalities….

    Sorry, Boombay Gordon, the guy from Belize, and Trini Lopez were both talking at once.

  7. The undocumented student program coordinator will probably be reporting to one of the university’s diversity directors.

  8. The Lib-Loony-Lefties are looking for any way possible to dispense with rules, expectations, and social cohesion, aren’t they?

    The Alinskyites want us to toss aside all notions of law, morality, and social norms because they think regressing to tribalism — pitting racial/ cultural/ economic/ groups against each other — is an easy pathway to power. “Laws? why do we need laws, except to have a means to control our enemies? Why would we want a shared culture? We DON’T want comity, tolerance, and the give-and-take associated with a functioning social contract. We DO want chaos and dissension, because that gives us an excuse to take control of more and more aspects of society.”

    Once the precedent has been set of recognizing “victim groups” who “deserve” to have certain laws waived for their benefit, how can “rule of law” be taken seriously? And when Rule of Law is gone, what is left?

    + + + + + + + + +

    (Have the Libtards never noticed that “Special Rules For Special People” always, *ALWAYS*, ends badly?)

  9. And then they have to raise tuition for the people paying the freight.

  12. Liberal University ad:

    Need an education? No problem!

    No documentation? No problem!

    No money? No problem!

    No complications? Problem!

  13. I imagine all law breakers lead rather complicated lives.

  14. The way things are going now, with the “Children’s Crusade,” MS13 gangs and thousands of
    assorted illegal adults being welcomed with open arms, we can save a lot of money by
    eliminating the Border Patrol, border crossing facilities, the border fence and money
    for border security. Its open borders, folks, come one, come all. Joe Biden says they
    are “our kids.” The money saved can be used for student loans for illegal aliens in the
    University of California system. The loans will be interest free, naturally.

    Someday an illegal alien with forged papers will run for President.

    “Some” would say that you are late to the party.

    “Others” would say “Got enough tin foil”? You decide.

    I say there is nothing new under the sun. Meet the new Human condition, same as the old human condition.

    That’s what I can’t help but to think when I hear pabulum like “bring people out of the shadows.”

    Don’t all fugitives from justice have to live in the shadows?
