And America's foster kids, who through no fault of their own, are dumped at the age of 18!!! Many become homeless! Why do illegal aliens take precedence over our own?

Same with our active military who were cut off from college benefits without warning...why do illegal aliens get this break.

We have given these "kids" 12 yrs of free education with meals and meds...no acknowledgement, no thank you, just why don't you want me to go to college bigot?

Bottom line, if they are so the best and brightest, and such hard workers, why don't they do like my son, work full time and go to school? It took him 7 years, but he paid for his own! Oh, yeah, he is an American, doesn't count!

So stupid, their goes another State, down the tubes.. What a waste. Allow them and screw the legal student's parent's so we can subsidize their educations while our own kids have to pay the piper...I've seen it in Utah, and it hasn't added one benefit to this State, not one.

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 is so true. Oregon had better rethink this action and Quickly.

good point. but let's see if any of our own students pick up on this, and protest having to pay out of state tuition when citizens from other countries who are in the usa illegally pay in state rates.

if they don't, maybe we shouldn't be working so hard to try to save the system for them.

if they don't stand up and speak out, it means they are so stupid, they are a waste of our time to speak up for.

it really makes me so mad that our young folks don't speak up more.
