Cappiello is right. Why penalize someone who is here legally from Mass.

Reinoso wants illegals to attain the American, perhaps he could purchase for them. Why they aways want taxpayers to foot the bill, it just isn't right. Do you notice most of the these liberals come up some special plan it is always with taxpayers money.
We need to develope Non incentives for illegals and help them develope the understanding that American is not the big free ride.

By the way, this impacts a lot more than 200 students. Go look at Danbury High School's ESL program.

This is the most ridiculous proposal. It isn't fair to students who are here LEGALLY and live out of state. If that is the case, then EVERYONE should received in state tuition which would make the point of in state or out of state tuition pointless!
If immigrants are here for the "american dream" they shouldn't receive it for free. It should come with a price tag. Enough is enough.

Absolutely Not! This is the most ridiculous thing I have heard of. Next, they will be able to get grants, financial ad and scholarships and the government, ie. taxpayers (you and I) will end up sending each illegal a check each semester as a thank you for letting us put them through college. Should we just open our wallets when an obvious illegal immigrant is in the vicinity and let them help themselves to whatever we have on us? I am a legal taxpayer. I pay over $1300 per month in childcare for my child, I pay for health insurance, etc. Why should illegals get all of the benefits of living here when my husband and I have worked hard? Is it because I choose not to live 15 to an apartment and rape the system?

Last year Rep. Bartlett was quoted in the News Times as being in favor of a similiar proposal. I wonder what his position will be now in lieu of the upcoming election?

Imagine how much worse off wed be if not for our Republican Governor in Hartford. The Loonies of the Democrat party would be going wild. Hopefully by 2011 when it comes to picking a new governor some of these insane socialist will be voted out of the General Assembly so they will not have such a lock on the legislative agenda.

Rep. Reinoso, November is coming... we have an opportunity to make you pay for your ill though decisions. Remember, you represent the citizens not just the illegal aliens.
wow

Ill say one thing that Senate Majority Leader Looney is correctly named! None of my kids ever got a break on tuition going to school. I had to pay the full rate. The sooner these liberaL democrats are ousted on a State & National level the better off the country will be. They are absolutly looney!

Are they crazy, No!! FOr what it would cost us to educate illegals kids , we could educate our own for free and further our own educated work force...ILLEGAL what is the problem with this word that so many people cannot define it. I am sure other governments would openly pay to house feed cloth and educate me at my will.. VOTE NO, we cannot afford this and by humoring it are breaking the law by supporting aillegals. IMPLEMENT HOUSE BILL 1804 as Oklahoma has and make the laws real. concise and tough....
