DENVER: A group of students paying higher out-of-state tuition to attend college in Kansas cannot challenge a state law allowing some illegal immigrants to pay lower in-state tuition, a federal appeals court ruled.
The ruling, issued Thursday, dealt only with whether the plaintiffs could challenge the 2004 Kansas law and did not address the merits of the law.
A trial judge in Kansas had ruled the students lacked standing to challenge the law because they did not face a "concrete and imminent" injury. A three-judge panel of the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed in its ruling Thursday

What this really means is that people from any other country can receive entry into our educational institutions for less than our own people? Or is it just illegals? We really like giving our country away don’t we?
In other words the headline is pure propaganda and has nothing to do with the ruling.
Just the MSM pushing their addenda.
addenda = agenda
looks like any students in states surrounding Kansas ought to declare themselves “illegals” - I think we sould create a new category.....”illegal in Kansas but, not in the other 49 states.”
It sounds to me like the plaintiffs attorney didn’t focus on the right aspect here, but then this may have been a good slight of hand by the defender's attorney that the judges bought. Either way they did buy it, and illegals get a better rate than citizens do. This is so pathetic.
Judges...Not only condoning, but aiding and abetting criminals, alien criminals, breaking US Laws...
These judges are now criminals themselves.
Illegals don’t want rights.
They want MORE Than Equal Rights.
ever see college loans stack up on a credit report?
If Kansas had passed a law that charged higher tuition for African-Americans out of state, and some of them sued because it would cost them an application fee to prove the harm, I wonder if the court would have ruled against the plaintiffs because they “did not have standing.”

the people really being injured are the tax payers subsidizing the lawbreakers. It would seem the suit should come from inside the state, not outside.
If Georgia should ever do something as unfortunate and wrong as subsidizing illegals with in-state tuition, its not the people in Florida who should have a case - they pay out of state tuition no matter what. It would be the Georgia tax payers who would be getting screwed.
This is the kind of idiotic law that must be challenged at the ballot box.
Every pandering scumbag politician who voted for this law needs to be ejected by the voters.
It certainly proves that those indulging in such actions were not brought up to value it. Those who don't value our country are unfit to lead, represent or make decisions that affect it.
For your AFIRE ping list. These illegal aliens officially have more rights than citizens.
Thanks, Kevmo. Sorry I just got to it, I've been out most of the day...
I read the article twice and still cannot figure out the logic of the ruling.
