How The Conspiracy Works: The Letter Of The Law

Some recent articles by the Idaho Freedom Foundation have really provoked the ire of some in Boise by questioning socialist policies and practices at BSU. We urge you to visit their site, as there are several articles touching this subject.

We agree with the IFF on these issues, and welcome the opportunity to point out one of the ways the conspiracy works, as made clear in the Idaho Press response, "More on 'Dreamers' and scholarships…", which includes a handy outline of the process. In short, if they can technically justify something, that makes it okay. I recommend reading the Idaho Press article to see the legal wrangling for yourself. This is where the intersection of lawyers and judges begins to bring us the corruption described in Alma 10, in the Book of Mormon.

One of the primary issues in this discussion is that "illegal alien students (DACA students)" are receiving "Idaho resident tuition rates and Opportunity Scholarship dollars." As pointed out in the Idaho Press article, “Under federal law, DACA students are considered ‘lawfully present’ in Idaho." That is the letter of the law. The spirit of the law, however, is that publicly funded education belongs to those who have paid for it. It just makes sense.

Don't get me wrong. I am not a supporter of public education in any way. We homeschool our children, and thank God every day for inspiring us to do so, back before "condom races" were a thing. But, that's middle school. This is college, which gets much worse. But I digress.

Principles are what matter. Period. These scholarships were put in place under the principle that they would be made available to qualified residents who helped fund it, or whose families helped fund it, with their tax dollars. Now, we get school administrators shoveling our dollars out the door in the name of "social justice," trying to right phantasmic wrongs that our country's leftists imagine up.

Do yourself a favor, Idaho. Take a stand. Demand that BSU–and every other educational institution in your state–cut the crap. Read the articles at IFF, and you will have a much better idea of what is going on, and what needs to be ended. "Social justice" is not education.
