Yeah, well I didn't get to go to Princeton either. Went thru the University of California system with no loans, financial aide, etc. Worked as a bartender and paid my way thru college with cash from tips.
Why should I have to help pay for You? Go back to Mexico and get your education there!

It is lovely that children from other lands can attend school here but not at the expense of our own children who suffer from overcrowding, bi-lingual issues, lowering the academic requirements and teaching to suit the lowest common denominators.

This is criminal. Felons do not have rights nor do their families.

"About 65,000 illegal immigrants graduate from U.S. high schools each year."

What is the average annual cost per student for public education? I can't remember the number.

“It's gotten caught up in the larger immigration debate,” Diaz-Balart said. “It's unfortunate – this is a fairness issue with regard to hardworking, studious people.”

How about fairness for the legal US taxpayer for a change. I'm sick of paying for illegal aliens. I estimated that at least 1/3 of my local and California taxes are diverted to illegal aliens.

Illegals: getting the tuition discounts Americans can't get

Arkansas State Law HB1525 almost gave in-state tuition to illegals in Arkansas. Some conservative activist, including freepers, lobbied against the bill which almost passed.

Without access to financial aid, grants and most scholarships, he had to push aside the Ivy League brochures and prepare to attend California State University Fresno,

Are you sh*tt*ng me? This is supposed to be some dort of sob story? When my dad died when I was 15 we lost our home and savings and I "had to attend a state university." The horror! "Robbed" of attending an Ivy league I could not afford.

What the f*ck is wrong with Liberals? Since when do criminal aliens get public sympathy for not being able to pay to go to expensive schools? Has everyone lost their minds?

California law allowed her to pay in-state tuition – about $3,000 a year, instead of the $11,000

Cry me a river.

I just finished paying for four years out of State tuition at U of AZ. for my son. AZ. makes it extremely difficult to qualify for instate tuition even for California residents (and yes we are multi generation US citizens).

In Calif. an out of state US citizen qualifies for in state tuition after one year residency.

"Razon couldn't get financial aid, but because California law allowed her to pay in-state tuition – about $3,000 a year, instead of the $11,000 charged to out-of-state residents "

Grand theft of the State of California.

Some legal resident lost a slot to this illegal.

On further thought: The only way we really can effectively 'eliminate' illegal aliens coming in from Mexico, is to help Mexico raise the quality of life their and increase the job market.

I am willing to accept in state tuition for children of illegal aliens IFF: After graduation they are obligated to go back to their country of origin and use their education to improve Mexico.

A kid from Nevada has to pay OUT OF STATE in California, yet illegals there can pay IN STATE.

And yet, we are asked to think of the treatment afforded HER as being somehow lacking.

Nebraska recently joined nine other states – including Texas, New York and
Illinois – that allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition
at their public institutions.


No mention that Tom Osborne (Nebraska Football G-d) lost his Republican
primary bid...to the current governor that vetoed that bill.
Mostly because he (Osborne) supported the give-away to illegals.

I bet there are a few Nebraska legislators wondering if they are
gonna' get some payback like Osborne the next time they stand for election...

Bernal is an illegal immigrant from Mexico City. Without access to financial aid, grants and most scholarships, he had to push aside the Ivy League brochures and prepare to attend California State University Fresno, where he can live with family and pay tuition with money from jobs he is not supposed to have.

Boo frickin' hoo! A lot of American citizens who are very intelligent can't afford Princeton either.

Matias Bernal... is an illegal immigrant from Mexico City. ... he had to ... prepare to attend California State University Fresno
...
Nora Razon, who was brought to California illegally from Jalisco, Mexico, when she was 2 and made it to San Francisco State University

The AP printed their entire names and school locations. I guess the AP wants readers to report these illegal aliens? DHS/ICE sure makes it confusing to figure out where.

Although Razon didn't have much choice in being brought here illegally, she is probably an adult now (at SFSU) and should take responsibility to make the effort to legalize her status.
