Posted on 12/07/2007 9:46:28 AM PST by NCjim
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. The University of North Carolina system is considering whether to offer undocumented immigrants in-state tuition at its 16 university campuses.
In-state tuition ranges from $1,500 to $3,700 while out-of-state students pay between $10,000 and $20,000.
System President Erskine Bowles said illegal immigrants already are in the state, and he said creating another permanent underclass isn't the right thing to do. The policy's costs and benefits are being studied by a 28-member commission of business, community and academic leaders.
Last week, a controversy erupted over a new policy that mandates all state community colleges admit students regardless of their immigration status. Policy opponents include all five candidates for North Carolina governor.

Insanity on Parade!!
Thanks, State of North Carolina for misusing our tax money to reward illegal border invaders.
I thought his name was Foreskin Bowels.
Hey, Foreskin! Here's a concept: Report them to ICE.
From this link....
...In September 1996, in the landmark Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA), Congress prohibited states from giving in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens. Members of Congress evidently never imagined that some states might simply disobey federal law.
They get the idea from Huckadem?
I wonder if newly arrived military members and their kids will be afforded the same benefit?
Love the spin on the headline, BTW. Must’ve been written by a grad from Joseph Goebbels U.
Irksome Bowels irks me to no end.
If you do that, I believe there is a law that all out of state kids get the same break.
Hey ... I have a better idea ... how about NOT LETTING THEM ATTEND UNTIL THEY ARE LEGAL ... you twits
I believe, and someone correct me if I am wrong, that states are not prohibited from giving illegals instate tuition, but the law is IF they DO give it to illegals, they are then forbidden from charging out of state rates and must charge all US Citizens, regardless of residence the same tuition, ie in-state tuition.
I agree completely. However, my focus is on the word "permanent" while his is probably on the word "underclass". And I know one way to make sure they aren't here permanently.
So these traitors want to give a fricken illegal alien a better deal than an AMERICAN CIIZEN from another state. These folks best beware the seeds of rebellion they sow. It is sad to see many Americans attempting to turn this place into the Balkans.
Just think - these are the brain-dead morons that are educating our youth.
Any conduct that facilitates an Illegal Alien to remain in the country is harboring and a violation of USC 8. Withhold federal funds from any state college that does so.
“...and he said creating another permanent underclass isn’t the right thing to do.”
Wouldn’t deportation be the right (and lawful) thing to do?
