    California court rules illegal immigrants can pay in-state tuition

    Yay! Yet another example of rewarding illegal immigration by giving illegal immigrants something not all US citizens can even get. Fantastic!

    No wonder they keep on coming.

    California court rules illegal immigrants can pay in-state tuition - CNN.com
    Illegal immigrants can qualify to pay cheaper in-state tuition rates at California public universities, the state's Supreme Court ruled Monday.

    Wait I am confused, when can a U.S. citizen not get in state tuition when they can prove they do in fact live in state?

    soccerboy22, et al,

    Don't claim US Citizenship when you apply.

    (COMMENT)

    There is a law against claiming US Citizenship, when you're not really a US Citizen. But, is there a law in reverse?

    Most Respectfully,

    A US citizen, who is 'not a legal resident of CA', cannot get in state tuition.

    An illiegal immigrant, who is 'not a legal resident of CA', can get in state tuition.

    I'm torn.

    I've been paying exorbitant out of state costs to attend a school in this state because I do not have residency. I would be quite peeved if somebody who was here illegally were allowed the option to pay in state costs.

    On the other hand, they have to spend 3 years in a California high school before they can get in state costs. So it isn't like they get to come right from Mexico and start in college at in state costs. They are usually kids whose parents migrated illegally.

    Their parents probably don't pay taxes, either. Not much to be torn over.

    Everybody pays taxes, period. Illegal or not it starts when one purchases something.

    Sorry, not the same thing. Come tell me about it, when those illegal aliens have a four-figure Federal income tax bill.

    Re: California court rules illegal immigrants can pay in-state tuition

    This is what we get for allowing Liberals to intimidate us into letting them run wild. We have to learn to stand up to them and tell them sit down and shut up.

    This political correctness and cries for tolerance from a bunch of two faced do gooders has put the State of California on the vrge of total ruin and the with Obama doing the same thing o the Nation as a whole we have little choice but to stand up to the name calling and Socialist/Marxist agendas.

    The Tea Party members get it and they need our suport and we can't let the propaganda from places like the White House and the Obamedia get in out way.

    We should never compromise with them because if we try they will once again force things down our throats.

    They specialize in saying one thing and doing the opposite and when caught at it they say, oh no you didn't see it right we are doing everything to make it right and all the time they forge ahead.

    I'm warning you We are on the verge of desperation and we have little time.

    We threw out a Chief Justice a few years ago and no it's time to get rid of the whole Court. Rose Bird was as useless as the Governor who appointed her to stop the death penalty. Now we have that useless piece of garbage back and a Court that is so far lft they almost make Schwarzenegger look like a Republican. Almost.

    We should also start working on a recall of Jerry Brown we don't need a reason other than he's a damn liar and we want him out. what we do need is a candidate to replace him with that will stand up to the wackos in Northern California and at the Capital and work to dump the Unions and take the State back and begin to rebuild some of the glory the Liberals have sucked out of it in the last 30 years.

    This State went from 1rst to next to last in education, from the 5th greatest economy in the world to near bankruptcy, and all because we didn't stand up to Liberal BS.

    Part of the problem in also moral decay and it has to stop. Part of that is ignoring the law and saying illegals can go to college at the instate cost.

    Well I say fine, let's enforce the damn laws we have deport them and the problem goes away.
