Rutgers Does a Good Deed for Undocumented Student

Fox News Latino has a story that should brighten your day.  Rutgers University has awarded a full scholarship to an undocumented immigrant to finish his last two years of college.

Rutgers University-Newark has granted Giancarlo Tello, a 24-year-old political science major who came from Peru with his parents when he was just 6, a two-year scholarship that amounts to about $22,000. University officials say they heard Tello speak at a community event in Newark, New Jersey and were amazed by his intelligence and leadership abilities. Since Tello is undocumented, and therefore ineligible for public financial aid programs, officials decided they would offer him a scholarship to help him cover the cost of his last two years.
