I think it's time to cut these people off til we get our country together. These people are using up a lot of money. Before, poor American students did not have to worry so much about tuition. Now they worry about that as well as passing exams.

I wouldn't give illegals any special benefits, but I don't have a problem with them going to college here.

They always speak about the fact that they are the best and brightest, but at every turn, they come begging! They can't seem to accomplhish anything without public assistance...and this includes the 12 years of free education with all of the trimmings!!! And you are REALLY stupid if you think these "kids" after getting degrees, won't go back to mexico, and treat the peasants the same way they were treated.

My son, an 8th generation American, worked full time and paid for his own college!!!! It took him seven (7) years to graduate!!!

Ever read an illegal alien story like this?!!!

They should have to pay for it themselves...what jobs will they be able to get if they graduate, as they still have no legal documents?

Even if they do graduate they will be used. Employers will still pay them less. Many illegals or what does our Government call them?,"Dreamers" will not get to far without long term legal documentation. Yes they may slid through for 2 year with temp. credentials,after that then what?

Because of past discrimination we deserve tuition to any school we want to attend.

Who are they kidding. The U.S. has already been giving them free Education along with grant's and Scholarships for the poor. In Utah dreamer's have lied and cheated their way into University and/ or been sponsored by their Church's and been given all kinds of freebies. New York is no different. They simply want to make it Law to give them in State Tuition and and permanent access to Pell Grant's. In other words free College Ed. I am ashamed of my State not helping poor Americans get in, but giving hand out's too lawbreakers. It's truly a travesty.

Nope sorry juanita doesn't work that way. You want higher education you pay for it at the going rate. Because of your illegal acts you deserve either jail or deportation, nothing more.

"Because of past discrimination"? You mean law enforcement? You do know being in the country illegally is against the law?

From mountains high under starry skies
Comes my lovely Cielito Lindo.
Thru the gate where the dancers wait
Comes my laughing Cielito Lindo.

Ay, ay, ay, ay!
No time for sadness,
When music meets with her dancing feet
She will fill our days up with gladness
