Mass Dem Gov. Deval Patrick Grants Illegal Aliens In-State Tuition Rates At All Public Colleges, Universities…
Undocumented immigrants who qualify for deferred deportation will get tuition breaks at public colleges and universities in Massachusetts.
An unnamed official told The Boston Globe that Gov. Deval Patrick will send a letter Monday to High Education Commissioner Richard Freeland announcing the new policy.
The news marks a victory for immigration rights activists who argue that immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children should have a path to citizenship and be able to enjoy the same residency benefits as citizens.
Some oppose the change in policy, arguing that state resources should go to citizens.
Patrick had said previously he supported providing in-state tuition to undocumented residents of Massachusetts, according to a report by the State House News Service, calling it a “matter of fairness.”
“They didn’t sneak in,” Patrick said, according to the State House News Service.“They were brought here by their parents. They only know one country and that is the United States.

bring'em on in... they just don't get to vote for 25 yrs (after the first opportunity for them to vote).

but i digress
you are teaching the kids it's ok to break the law... in fact you'll be rewarded for it.

what about the people who take YEARS to get citizenship the RIGHT way? why bother now....?

We're talking about kids. You want to punish kids for what they're parents do? That doesn't make sense. You think a kid who was forced to come here as a 5 year old should be punished for life?

The parents- sure. The kids- no.

Punish the parents. Deport them. If the kids are college age, and their parents brought they here via illegal means, they don't deserve to be punished for life.

What if your parents had a big business or gambling debt and the state could pass that on to you? Is that fair?

i see - split up the family. leave the kids to the gov't.... seems like a decent idea so far (turn off sarcasm).

don't punish them for life? college age is adult age. they can leave too.

Well we'll agree to disagree. Hopefully nobody ever punishes your kids for what you've done.
