Many thanks to J. G. and Ron Woodard of NC Listen for sending over this photo that shows how limited parking is at Alamance Community College.
I include this photo here to emphasize the point that we often underestimate the costs of illegal immigration. Contrary to Jim Johnson and others, the costs of illegal immigration go beyond healthcare and education. There are also transportation costs — because more people are using the roads; there are public safety costs — not only due to incarceration costs, but because more manpower is needed to police cities with larger populations. There are even — as the photo shows — parking costs!
As more and more illegals understandably take advantage of N.C.’s higher-education system, expect not only parking spots to disappear, but also classroom seats for North Carolina natives — not to mention jobs for native community college and university graduates.
To read more about how much taxpayers are paying to provide in-state tuition to illegal immigrants in the North Carolina community college system, see Dr. Bob Luebke’s new fact sheet on this issue.
