Connecticut To Allow Illegal Immigrants In-State Tuition
The state of Connecticut is signing a bill into law that will allow illegal immigrants in-state tuition. This will lower their tuition payments by thousands. Connecticut is now joining a hand full of other states, like Illinois and New York, in allowing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. These immigrants are however, working towards legal status.
Governor Malloy is signing this bill into law today July 07. Between 200-300 students are expected to take advantage of this new law within the next year.
I would think so, it could save them as much as $17,000 annually.
Here is my problem with this. They are here ILLEGALLY but yet we are giving them benefits we don't even give our own citizens. If I went to college outside of Texas, would they allow me to waive off that extra tuition money? No way.
If you want the benefits of this country, of being a citizen, then go and get your green card.
I went to college. I had loans, grants, worked part-time but I don't remember ever being granted any benefits by the government. Why should these illegals benefit more than we do?
