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(a)) states: "an alien who is not lawfully present in the United States shall not be eligible on the basis of residence within a State (or a political subdivision) 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."

That means if you give in-state tuition to illegal aliens,then you have to give it to anyone else,which includes legal immigrants and students from other states!

Exactly...and I don't see any of these groups rallying around for citizens or legal residents to be given in-state tuition no matter where someone goes. The idea is absurd.

It may profit colleges but it will sink America at a faster rate. We just killed this measure temporarily in Arkansas. Everyone from law enforcement on down seems to be looking at this from the view of what can I get out of it...nto what is this going to do to our country or our state?
