Colleges giving financial aid to illegal aliens. But claim "it's not taking anything away from anybody."

It's been learned that several U.S. colleges are giving financial aid to students who are illegal immigrants.  This practice has grown since President Obama’s 2012 executive action eliminating deportation (technically, "deferring indefinitely") for millions of young people brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.

New York University — which receives federal, state and city money — says the aid given to illegal immigrants is not at the expense of American students.  Here's NYU admissions officer "MJ Knoll-Finn" explaining this in the NY Times for those who don't understand basic math:
“This is not taking away from anybody. This is a formalized way of making sure these students know they’re welcome.”
This of course is utter horse shit.  Aid dollars are a finite number, and dollars given to one person or group aren't available to others.

And I love the instant rationalization/excuse that follows the bullshit line of not taking anything away from anybody:  Giving tuition assistance to illegals is merely "a formalized way of making sure these students know they’re welcome.”  Ah yes.  Just like wars started by Democrats--thus "good wars"--are merely "kinetic actions."

The only mystery here is, are all college administrators this dumb, or do they think we are?
