Without Amnesty, the only people here would be the Indians.
Kudos to the state of Utah for a generous, open-handed policy toward young
people. One bright spot.
so can my child get in state tuition if he or she immigrates from a neighboring
state. probably not because we are law abiding tax paying people.
You keep bringing up these topics even though it brings understandable
indignation from law abiding, honest people. Why?
jeff, is it possible for a 6-year-old to break the law?
Why should someone who is here from another country ILLEGALLY get the cheap
"in state tuition rate" while someone coming to school from a place like
Wyoming or Kansas has to pay the higher "non-resident" rate?Either we have laws or we do not. Enforce them or repeal them- every single
cjb, that's the line we are being fed by the cheap labor lobbyists.
Anything to give the appearance of acceptance is one of their priorities.
It's a foot in the door. 21 million Americans looking for full
time work don't believe it. Since they are paid less, and much of their
income is send home, it's a loss to our economy.
cjb,Yes, and there are parents of other people who wish to be doing
that work but can't since illegal aliens took their jobs. So those kids
with parents who obey the law can't afford college.
Do we allow this in state-funded (in other words - taxpayer funded)
institutions? This is insane! No benefit should accrue to these people unless
they obey our laws.
Their parents do work here that needs doing, work that contributes to the
economy. Therefore it isn't unfair that these students get in-state rates.
Last one out bring the flag.Pandering politicians disgust me.
Why do we have laws in place for immigration yet cease to enforce them? and why
are some states awarding illegal immigrants who have broken the law with amnesty
and government grants to go to school? so why are these states and our
government awarding these lawbreakers and illegals with things only US citizens
should have? very troubling.what kind of message is that sending to the others?
I would love to see Utah follow this example. Of course, there
needs to be some restrictions. In-state tuition should only be available to
illegal immigrants who came into the country as a child and have been in the
state for some years.
