Illegal immigrants in colleges

National Review writes about illegal immigrants taking up valuble space in universities and colleges:
Should it be cheaper for illegal immigrants to attend U.S. colleges than for U.S. citizens? Yes, according to lawmakers in California, Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Washington.

Illegal immigrants residing in these states are eligible for in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities. These rates afford a significant cost savings compared to the tuition rates charged to out-of-state students. On average, an out-of-state student pays three times as much in tuition costs as an in-state student to attend the same school. In some states this means an out-of-state student pays as much as $40,000 more over four years.

In-state tuition for illegals is an increasingly popular concept among lawmakers. At least 20 additional states are considering legislation that would grant in-state tuition rates to illegal immigrants. Some U.S. senators are even considering extending in-state tuition for illegals to all fifty states. They're doing so in clear defiance of congressional intent to make such preferential treatment unlawful.
And what leads to this kind of disrepect for law? Political corruption, and greed.

It's time to put a stop to this disrespect for law and order. To do so, we need to find good politicians whom we can support for local elections, who can then in turn do what they can to appoint honest lawmakers. Otherwise, our tax dollars are going to end up being misused for a considerable amount of lawbreaking.
