Illegal immigration and college tuition: States make their own rules

There are 2 comments on the story from May 16, 2011, titled Illegal immigration and college tuition: States make their own rules. In it, reports that:

The tuition battle has grown, in part, because of a lack of action by Congress. The federal government holds jurisdiction over immigration law, and a 1982 Supreme Court ruling mandated that states provide illegal immigrants with access to K-12 education in public schools. But the absence of a comprehensive federal immigration plan has given states relatively free rein to impose their own rules on issues such as who can attend public colleges, and at what rates.

It's not a lack of a comprehensive immigration plan, it's a lack of enforcing the laws already on the books.
