Cuomo plans to extend NY free tuition program to ‘Dreamers’
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently revealed his FY 2019 budget proposal, which would extend the state’s free tuition program to illegal immigrant students.
According to a briefing book, Cuomo’s plan “includes legislation to implement the DREAM Act, opening the doors of higher education to thousands of New Yorkers.”
The briefing explains that illegal immigrants have qualified for in-state tuition at both the State University of New York (SUNY) and the City University of New York (CUNY) since 2002, but claims that each year, “many talented students who graduate from New York high schools remain unable to fulfill their potential simply because they cannot afford the tuition and lack access to tuition assistance to help pay for school.”
Last year, Gov. Cuomo famously spearheaded a program to make tuition free-of-charge at SUNY and CUNY, which is available during the 2018-2019 school year to all resident students with a family income of up to $110,000.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to give another break to immigrant Dreamers by extending free public college tuition to students who were brought into the United States illegally as kids.
Cuomo tucked a provision in his $168 billion budget plan that would amend state education law to make the undocumented students eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship program, which covers tuition costs for students from families with incomes of up to $125,000.
On Tuesday, he said the state would continue providing Medicaid to Dreamers regardless of any federal changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.
But Republicans in the state Senate said they won’t go along with Cuomo’s latest idea.
Now, he’s taking it one step further by extending free tuition under his “Excelsior Scholarship Program” to students who reside in the country illegally, according to his FY ‘19 budget briefing.
The more you give away for free, the more illegal immigrants will want to sneak into the country. Democrats know this. Is that why they propose ideas like this?
