Why on Earth should they be able to get the education they want cheaper than someone born a few miles in a different direction despite the fact that they aren't even here legally? That's why we have such a huge immigration problem. People pretend like these kids are being raised to be contributing citizens and most of them aren't. If their parents were the kind of people to make good choices, they would have started the paperwork the 15 years their kids have been here. Send them back or get them to do the paperwork and pay the fees, we have enough problems with the bad choices people make that are legally here.
    At least at Metro here in Denver, they have to prove that they are working on getting their citizenship in order to get the cheaper tuition. Also, the fact that they are trying to go to college says to me that they are trying to become contributing citizens, no matter what their parents are doing or have done.

    I can not really tell what the true story is here, but there are two issues going on.

    I believe there should be a law mandating all military to be declared in any state a resident of that state for tuition purposes. Military are shipped all over at any time, therefore, their colplege tuition should be alwways considered instate. This is such a bizaare struggle for our military to face.

    The whole inmigration issue is a separate issue, which is at minimum complex. I would like to see our legal residents having access to benefits before illegals. In my mind, i think one of the qualifications of being a lawful resident of any State is to first be a lawful resident of this country.
