Pedro Ramirez, Fresno State's student body president, is an undocumented immigrant serving in the position without pay.
Ramirez, 23, attends school on scholarships and pays in-state tuition. California is one of 10 states that permit undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition -- a position that was upheld by the state Supreme Court this week.

can I throw up now?
You just know we are all going to bail out this revolting Mexican State!!!
Taxpayers lose money on college students. Cost of tuition no where near covers the cost in public universities.
So he’s stealing money from taxpayers.
A legal U.S. Resident moving from, say, Nevada has to pay out-of-state tuition. Illegals get the discount rate.
Second American Revolution on the way!
There is no way the rest of the country should be forced to bail out this monstrosity of a state.
Cut ‘em loose. thanks for playing, let la raza wipe your asses out. Then we’ll come back in and take thm out and have a fresh state to start over with.
Don’t we both think that is exactly why the Mexican Gov is dragging their feet of stopping this mess? They know if they wait long enough and the violence gets even worse along the border, the good ole USA will be sending BILLIONS down Mexico way to help the fight.
Pedro for governor of California!
I thought there was a federal law that prohibited in-state tuition for illegals? If so, why do these state’s (the ones that allow it) students receive federal Pell grants and student loans?
Cali is beyond the point-of-no-return. We will watch them fail, and then the taxpayers of the remaining states will bail them out so they can start all over again down the same path.
but the Feds fight states that try to clean up the mess...yet let this continue.
we are letting CA illegal immigrants form our laws and drain us financially. They have too much power over our future.
They are prohibited by law to ask nationality.
We had a baby born in the family recently b was was from overseas, here legally (year delay, red tape, legal fees, etc.). Hospital said, “She can sign up for Medicaid — they don’t ask them if they have papers to be here.”. Free health insurance for illegals directly from the Feds.
You think they don’t give student loans to illegals?
You are naive. Read and learn here.
bet he got a pell grant? Go home pedro
Well, on the bright side, he’ll make a great Dem politician.
Whatever happened to the USA being ‘a nation of laws’?
I was taking about denying federal student grant and loans to students attending CA state colleges because the state of CA is not following federal law regarding in-state tuition for illegals. If the law was being enforced properly, there would be a consequence for such violation of federal law vis-a-vis in-state tuition for illegals.
Laws, schmaws. Grab what you can get before it’s all gone.
Call the feds.
“Second American Revolution on the way!’’ Wake me when it gets here. I’m tired of hearing about stories like this and a government that doesn’t get it on border security and the rule of law.
Propaganda for the “Dream” Act Obama and the dems want to pass in the lame duck session.
Before they deport him and his family.
I say that Pedro gets to retain his Fresno State’s student body president position while he is serving jail time waiting to be deported.
First he has to work off the money he owes to the USA in a chain gang.
The money should go to the families of Border Patrol agents who were killed in the line of duty.
