    New Jersey Gave Over $3.8 Million in Financial Aid to Undocumented College Students

    NJ gave more than $3.8 million in financial aid to undocumented college students last year

    More than 700 undocumented students received more than $3.8 million in college financial aid for the first year during which New Jersey made the aid available to those without legal status.

    The figures, provided by the state Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, show that 749 students in total received the aid during both the fall and spring semesters of the 2018-19 school year. Most of the aid, more than $3.5 million, was awarded under the New Jersey Tuition Aid Grant, or TAG, program.

    Students at Rutgers University received the largest portion of the aid, with more than $1.3 million awarded to recipients attending that school. The next-largest portions were: $273,610 to students at the New Jersey Institute of Technology; $271,671 to students at St. Peterís University; and $206,850 to those at Montclair State University

    I don't know how that happens.

    I work in the foster care system. When we determine what a child's funding source is, one of the first questions asked is if the child is a legal citizen. If not, we have to use state/county funds because federal Title 4E funds can only be used for children who are US citizens. There is probably a different federal fund used for the children whose parents are being detained, but those cases are being determined by the federal government and courts. The way we have it set up, it's pretty much impossible to make a mistake, because if enough mistakes get made, the state loses funding.
