illegals getting in state tuition

Postby kiryan » Fri Nov 19, 2010 10:25 pm

I was listening to some right winger out in Utah over the weekend and he brought up an interesting question.

What is the benefit for illegals to get in state tuition? Where / how have they been working without becoming legal?

I want to consider this outside of the proposed DREAM act which would give illegals who were brought to the country while "very young" a path to citzenship; I think it specifically addresses illegals enrolled i college. What is / was the point and the intention of these types of policies over the past 10-20 years?

Funny enough I think Wednesday there was a story that the student body president of one of the UCs is illegal. He never disclosed this during the campaign and his opponent is calling for him to step down, but he's refusing. His opponent is calling it lieing and a character issue. The illegal was also being paid by the university which after finding out he was illegal had to stop paying him.
