All States legislators already okayed these bills long before the house got them. In UTAH ILLEGALS HAVE received free educational grant's for the poor. They stand in every line at my son's college for every freebie they can, including free or subsidized rents and free food. What the house will do is approve illegals for Federal money which really is your tax dollars folks. It's been up to States to decide but they've skirted Federal law to pay for them and also do work for tuition in our State. They've not been restricted contrary to what you may have heard. Very few illegals attain higher educations and few graduate from High School.

Another law in brazen violation of USC 1324 which makes it a federal crime to merely encourage illegals to live here.

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!

This information needs to be disseminated across the nation. Forcing these illegal loving states to provide instate tuition to everyone will give them reason to reconsider their decisions.

Of course, the MSM will do nothing to spread this news.

Remember, they use phony ID's and steal S.S.#'s from babies, including their own anchors to sign up for these programs. It would be nice if they played by the rules but they don't and unfortunatly they never will. Also Faith based organizations sponsor them as well such as Catholic charities and the Mormon Church. Many illegals get State money for Education and Grant's coming from all over that pay for them as well.

Address the issue i raised. Giving money to illegals encourages them to live here and that violates federal law USC 1324. Do you dispute that, you insect???
