"This is the contradiction of House Bill 218, sponsored by Reps. George Cleveland, R-Onslow, and Chris Whitmire, R-Transylvania, and three others. If the bill were to become law, young North Carolinians who do not have legal immigration status would be barred from attending the state’s community colleges. It would also affect students here under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals imitative, or DACA, implemented by President Obama."

What Obama has done is against federal law. I'am a democrat and i back barring these illegal aliens. First things first. First you get a visa to come here and after approval then you can talk about going to school or working or anything else. You don't break into a country first and demand any thing.

Chris Christie

Not getting invited to CPAC proved to be a blessing in disguise for the New Jersey governor. If he’d been invited, he might have taken flak for turning down the offer — or come and been booed.

Instead, the snub puts helpful distance between Christie and the national GOP in a state Barack Obama just carried by 17 points. He is likely to coast to an easy reelection this November, and he will have plenty of time before 2016 to re-ingratiate himself with conservatives frustrated by his embrace of the president after Hurricane Sandy.

The cold shoulder made him a sympathetic figure. Several very conservative attendees grumbled that Donald Trump got invited but Christie did not. He came in fourth in the straw poll with 7 percent, just below Rick Santorum’s 8 percent.

Some boosters even handed out fliers to attendees touting “The Christie Record,” crediting him with putting the Garden State’s fiscal house in order by cutting spending and capping property taxes.

Christie also probably had a more fun weekend than other 2016 contenders: he spent Saturday night watching college basketball at the Big East Tournament.

"They’ve lived here all their lives."

SO?!!! The parents of illegal alien "kids" could say the same thing, Yet, they chose to leave the only country they knew and come to one they didn't know, illegally, without knowing the language. I think that a return trip with the kiddies would not be at all so tramatizing.

For some reason they think because they have gotten away with the crime, they are legitimacy to stay!!!! We hav yobs, we pay taxes and get nothing...they never forget that the taxes they pay in no way begins to pay for the freebies they and their anchors get!

Give them a shot!!!!! Funny, that half the Student's in Salt Lake at our Community college are illegal immigrant's. They gotten in and are on Student visa's getting freebies and on school work job's so half already attend community and that includes thousands of Mexicans, Indians, Chinese and other Asian student's. Once here they don't leave. They set up housekeeping anchor and use more benefit's than we can afford. Our Country is going broke as a result of student's over-staying their Visa's and never contributing anything to our Society. No to free Education until American Student's get in line first.... Period.
