This sounds a lot like the platform of the Democratic party. Must be a coincidence.

NYU study advocates providing government benefits to illegal aliens

A new study released by the Institute of Human Development and Social Change at New York University advocates for helping illegal immigrants get access to government benefits and programs.

The report was authored as a response to immigration policies pushed by the Trump administration over the past two years. Those policies “have led more mixed-status immigration families to live in a climate of fear and anxiety”, according to an outline of the study published by NYU’s Steinhardt school.

According to a Campus Reform report on federal research funding in higher education, NYU received $391,144,000 in federal research and development funds in Fiscal Year 2017.

The report was authored by five scholars, three of whom are either NYU-affiliated or have spoken at the school in the past: Hirokazu Yoshikawa, Ajay Chaudry, and Trenel Francis. Sarah A. Rendón García, a doctoral student at Harvard, and Columbia University assistant professor Heather Koball also contributed to the report.

The authors of the study present several solutions that state and local governments could implement to mitigate the effects of the Trump administration’s federal policies. Those strategies presented include ways to assist illegal aliens with evading ICE, giving illegal immigrant students in-state college tuition, and state and local governments paying for federal immigration lawyers.
