Phil Murphy Signs Bill To Let Unauthorized Immigrants Get College Financial Aid


A New Jersey college student’s immigration status will no longer play a factor into whether that student is eligible for certain in-state financial aid.

Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill into law Wednesday that would let illegal immigrant students be eligible for financial aid.


The bill sparked controversy when it made its way through the Democratic-controlled Legislature. Republican lawmakers blasted the legislation as a measure that gives a leg up over New Jerseyans who are here in the state legally.




  1. Federal law forbids them from working here and this law says they are allowed to take free benefits from society. So our laws are forcing them to take and not give back.

    • Hillary, they are “giving back”. MS13, drug trade, making our property taxes go up by flooding the public schools with their kids, setting up their anchor babies on welfare and foodstamps, clogging the hospital system, etc. The Latin American illegals that come here are not exactly the best and the brightest of their home countries. Most of them are the slum dwellers and the criminal element back home. A lot of these people are illiterate even in Spanish, have low IQ, and lack a basic education. And they do work as they please, off the books, skewing the labor market supply and demand towards below living cost wages, despite whatever federal laws might be violated. They are the permanent underclass with little to none upward mobility, and as such are a perfect DemocRatic voter block.

  2. Any learning institution that allows the illegals to attend, even while paying tuition, should be disqualified from participating in the Federal Student Aid program. Thus, with the American citizens being unable to apply for such financial assistance at such colleges, and enrollment possibly plummeting, the colleges would be forced to stop this insanity.

  3. The Governor is right. He was overwhelmingly voted in as Governor. He has a mandate. He is doing the will of the people of New Jersey. This is what they voted him in for. Unlike that little panzy, Jeff Sessions, Mr. Murphy is doing what he was hired for. He is earning his paycheck.
    To residents of New Jersey: ENJOY!
