Rather than in-state tuition, give the students an express bus ticket south so they can use their ILLEGALLY gotten education thus far to help reform their country and maybe stay in it. Oh , and it may atract the other 20 million to get out.

looks cool I wonder how much they're charging for rent, since NM is turning down all the affordable housing.

The reason that students from other states are asked to pay more for tuition is that their families do not contribute to CT taxes. Immigrant families, whatever their status, pay taxes and contribute to the economy of the state.

The NT completely misses the boat on this issue. Instate tuition for ALL graduates of CT high schools is the only just policy.

CT should join the other 10 states who understand this.

I would hardly say the News Times misses the boat on this one.

THe end of their opinion piece states:

"But this is a public policy issue. In-state tuition benefits should only be granted to those who legally reside in Connecticut. Out-of-state residents and illegal immigrants should not be eligible."

They are right on the money!

If only the News Times could exptrapolate their newly acquired wisdom to the rest of the illegal immigrant situation. I would comment on Koonz, but I stopped reading any article his name appears on, as in the past it has proven to be pure drivel. To those legal immigrants in our midst, welcome.

Here's a better idea. Let these children get their education at instate tuition rates since it's obvious they want to better themselves and then we can deport morons like you.

I cannot believe what I read about offering illegal immigrants a lower college tuition. Has Connecticut gone totally insane? Have you forgotten that many U.S. born boys and girls are anxious to attend college and can't afford it, how about thinking of them first. Remember that charity begins at home. Please keep the sanity.

You're such a simpleton. If only the real world could be so simple! Are you employed and ready to pay? I doubt it.

College education is good for illegals. They can learn our laws and teach their families how to immigrate legally. Then we won't have any more gripes, and we can all go outside and play in our new safe neighborhoods.

My good people of Connecticut

I am not a fake or real retarded, but #20 is the fake bpt and a real Coward and Wimp for not insulting black people to their faces. The shocker is for the fake bpt is that he does not know that most of the regular writers are black, and his life is not worth living when we find out his real name.

You`ve admitted you have a college education, and often slip up and type normal. But you knew that. Troll. There is more than one BPT, deal with it. The other one who complains a lot has a proxy program and uses different locations in CT.
#22 is the fake bpt, Tommy Dummy Owen from Hell.
