I'm sorry. It's too late for that! This damned administration will do whatever it wants along with its sheeple. It doesn't matter what you want.

This has been going on for years.

IT IS TOTALLY WRONG AND UNFAIR to allow foreigners and illegal aliens to get in state tuition or ANY discounts. Don't think our students who are AMERICAN CITIZENS aren't angry about this. First tuition rates are going up all over the country to the point where it's hard for American citizens to go to university. And employers still have the gall to insist that to work you must have some sort of degree.

Either we should have flat rate tuition and either you can go or not, or forget it. The in state tuition rates have been abused to the point where citizens of this country have to pay a HIGHER out of state tuition rate, when foreigners and illegals get off with either grants or in state tuition. WRONG, wrong wrong!

This country is DELIBERATELY breeding malcontent because of this disparity and then punishing the malcontents.

It's sickening.

Awarding in state tuition to illegal aliens is fiscally irresponsible and patently unfair .

50% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. It tells a lot.

On a side issue, not all students are cell phone toting idiots who have a sense of entitlement.

I have met some very intelligent students, more so than I, and they ARE searching for work and for a decent education and we are letting them down on BOTH!

One of the students I know quit the engineering program at a very well known local university. He did so because for two reasons. One, the textbook he was supposed to use was DUMBED DOWN from his father's textbook. Two, and most important, his professor was more into "global warming" than into engineering and they couldn't replace the prof because of tenure. THIS is the sort of crap parents, government and students are paying their hard earned money for! Blessedly another student went to a different university in what I would call a run down city and got a decent engineering degree and went on to actually WORK thereby being able to pay OFF the school debt.

I might add that illegal immigrants here are considered "at risk minority students" and are given all the social breaks we can bestow. Affirmative action comes to mind. THAT program should be thrown away.

I've already written my congress person on this YEARS ago. They listen when it either suits them or they are perceived as being in a key position and can't be denied.

Our highest unemployment rates today are among unskilled blacks and native born Hispanics with the same skill sets as most illegal workers. Well educated Americans, like the newspaper editors and politicians who incessantly call for “fixing” immigration by passing more legalization schemes, don’t compete for those jobs. They hire immigrants to clean their houses, mow their lawns and paint their nails. And they’re oblivious to the distinction between who hires and who competes.

So what about the rotting fruits and vegetables? Do we need to legalize 11 million illegal immigrants to get our crops harvested? Not really. The federal government has created a guest worker program (the H-2A visa), specifically for agricultural workers, with no limit on the number of workers an employer can sponsor. That’s right. There’s no excuse for anyone to be illegal. But employers prefer illegal workers because it's less paper work; they don’t have to pay minimum wage, overtime, sick pay, observe safety regulations, provide housing, or pay social security taxes.

According to the Pew Hispanic Center, only 4% of illegal aliens work in agriculture. The rest work in construction, maintenance, cleaning, repair, manufacturing, food preparation and service. Is it true that Americans don’t want those jobs either? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the majority of workers in each of those fields are native born. But the number of illegal workers flooding those labor markets drives down wages.

The biggest threat to the security of American citizens does not come from al Qaeda or the Taliban, neither does it come from North Korea or Iran. It's comes from Mexico, just on the other side of the Rio Grande.

I think American taxpayers are already paying a lot more than they should to help support all the illegal immigrants entering our country.

Why do some members of Congress want to give work permits to 11-18 million illegal aliens when U.S.
veterans cannot find work?
