SENATE PASSES BILL ON NO FUNDING FOR MINORITIES IN COLLEGE !! A bill will be heard in Congress next week to prohibit Affirmative action in admissions for ANY institution of higher education
That receives ANY federal funding (Pell grants, loans, etc.). This would end affirmative action in EVERY COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY IN THE UNITED STATES! PLEASE READ AND ACT SOON!
Rep. Frank Riggs (R-CA)Chairman of the House Education Subcommittee On Children, Youth, and Families is planning to offer an ANTI-AFFIRMATIVE ACTION in admissions amendment when the Higher Education Act is voted on the floor NEXT WEEK.
The amendment would prohibit all institutions of Higher education from using affirmative action in its' admission decisions. If even one student at the institution receives federal funds (i.e., Pell Grant or Student Loan) they would be violating federal law under this proposal. Affirmative action would be illegal even if the school believes it is necessary to insure a diverse student body, or to remedy past or present discrimination. Call members of Congress (202) 224-3121 and the President (202) 456-1414. They need to hear from us the importance of Affirmative action.
PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW! ALL OF US WILL LOSE IF THIS BILL BECOMES THE LAW OF THE LAND!
BTW-This fool has already gotten a bill passed that will take away federal funds from the city of San Francisco for supporting a domestic partners measure which allows gay couples to recieve benefits... Initially this bill he submitted a bill that would've disallowed any city from doing business with companies that discriminate.. In other words if there was a city that had a problem with a corporation because they did some foul stuff.. Congressman Riggs bill would've prevented that city from divesting funds..Davey D
