Fed-up illegal immigrants take to the streets and demand ‘free’ college tuition

A group of illegal alien high school students staged a protest to demand access to a scholarship that would grant them a free ride through college.

The current and former Guilford County high school students gathered outside of the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center in North Carolina on Tuesday where the “Say Yes College Fair” was taking place, WFMY reported.

The scholarship provides free tuition for in state public universities and colleges, but students must fill out a FAFSA form which requires the student to be a legal U.S. citizen.

“Why is it that that it’s different with me?” Araceli Garcia-Garnica asked. “Why is it that one simple piece of paper matters to them so much?”

Garcia-Garnica is in the United States since she was 2 years old and is now living under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Mary Vigue, the director of Say Yes Guilford, said she is willing to meet with the illegals to discuss the options they have moving forward.

“We try to provide support in other ways even without the scholarship,” she told WFMY. “In terms of directing students to other scholarships and schools that will support them if they aren’t eligible for our scholarship.”

Social media was not sympathetic to their cause.
