Senator Scott Brown, R-Mass., blasts Harvard for banning ROTC while embracing illegal aliens

Harvard University recently voted to keep it’s ban on ROTC students as a way of protesting the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Scott brown, the Republican Senator from Massachusetts and Army National Guard member, was none too pleased:

“It is incomprehensible to me that Harvard does not allow ROTC to use its facilities, but welcomes students who are in this country illegally,” Brown said in a statement. “Harvard President Faust has been lobbying on Capitol Hill in support of the DREAM Act, which would grant legal status to illegal immigrants attending college. Harvard has its priorities upside down. They should embrace young people who want to serve their country, rather than promoting a plan that provides amnesty to students who are in this country illegally.”
