Right now, undocumented students are forced to pay out-of-state tuition."

The Daily Barometer
SALEM -- The rally wasn't set to begin for another 10 minutes, but when a television camera began to roll, the students gathered at the Capitol steps opted to put on a show.
"We're hoping we will not be ignored," said Oregon State senior Kevin Grant, making sure his voice could be heard over shouts of support from the crowd.
"Freeze our tuition!" a student yelled. Another, looking toward the Capitol, said: "Can you hear us?" OSU's tuition has increased by 53 percent over the last four years.
Universities across the state will see a 12 percent tuition increase over the next two years.
Students have also put "tuition equity" on their agenda -- a policy that would allow undocumented immigrants who meet certain conditions to pay in-state tuition.
"We want to break barriers to higher education," said Jael Anker-Lagos, co-chair of the Students of Color Coalition at the University of Oregon. "Right now, undocumented students are forced to pay out-of-state tuition." and that is wrong... why?
Your undocumented... this means your illegal... it means you're not supposed to be here... and you want in-state tuition? Gimme a break.

The issue at hand in which we are waiting more information further news that was announced Tuesday about students filing a class-action suit for states offering in-state tuition to illegal immigrants and not others.

Federal law passed in 1996 prohibits illegal aliens from receiving in-state tuition rates at public institutions of higher education. Specifically, Section 505 of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (Title 8, Chapter 14, Sec. 1623) states: "an alien who is not lawfully present in the United States shall not be eligible on the basis of residence within a State ... for any postsecondary education benefit unless a citizen or national of the United States is eligible for such a benefit (in no less an amount, duration, and scope) without regard to whether the citizen or national is such a resident."

Those morons don't understand that if undocumented folks get in-state tuition as well, actual in-state students' tuition will go up as well.

Forgive the college students' stupidity though, as they are young and naive (most, at least). Everyone needs a "cause" to fight for.

I ran a campaign against Jael Anker-Lagos.

I will do it again, and with much more truthful and factual force this time.

I say give them in-state tuition...In their own damn country!
Why are they allowed to even register for an education in this country?
We should collect those records, collect the criminal and give them a one way trip in the back of a box truck back over the border.
