Don’t give law-breakers financial aid for college

I was reading the article about Sheldon Silver trying to push through a state version of the DREAM Act. He wants to provide the children of illegal immigrants with financial aid and TAP for college. What about our children who are legal residents of this state? There are many students who would love this “gift” and who are struggling to pay tuition, like my daughter did. Why doesn’t he try to make tuition more affordable for our citizens instead of for illegal immigrants?

Who’s going to pay for this? I sure don’t want to fund this with my taxes. I think it’s time for Silver to step down and give the leadership of the Assembly to a younger person who doesn’t have his own agenda like Silver does.
