Carried into the United States in her mother's arms, Maria became a criminal when she was just over 2-weeks-old.
Of course, she did not know that at the time. Maria found out that she was an illegal immigrant when she began applying to colleges at 17, and told herself that if she was unable to gain U.S. citizenship by the time she was 30, she would leave the country forever.
Now 22-years-old and a graduate student at Cal State Fullerton, Maria, who is still undocumented, said that she tries not to think about her lack of citizenship and the obstacles it could create for her future.
Maria is one of thousands of students in Orange County who have been able to attend college through AB 540, a California law that allows undocumented students to pay in-state tuition, rather than the higher fee charged to non-California residents.
The Register is withholding the full names of the undocumented students at their request and under newspaper policy that recognizes the potential for retaliation against them.
Undocumented students are ineligible for state or federal financial aid, but do get help under a policy that allows them to pay the same fees as California residents. For example, non-California residents pay an additional $20,608 a year at the University of California; up to $10,170 at the California State University: and up to $170 per unit at community colleges.

...weren’t most of the 9-11 hijackers grads?
So US citizens from any of the other 49 states who come to California for education must pay the far higher out-of-state tuition at public institutions (which receive all sorts of federal funding), but ILLEGALS can get in-state rates.
Oh, yeah, that’s a fair and reasonable policy for American CITIZENS.
we need to be more welcoming (sarc)
Most of the crimigrants are NOT edcuated.
why cant the state of california keep track of these stellar students? after all they would be the poster kids for open borders. (sarc)
Give them all a healthy jail term with a large fine and deport them when they finish serving ther jail term.
Calling an illegal alien an “undocumented worker” is like calling a rapist an “undocumented boyfriend”.
“recognize the potential for retaliation....”
How easy it is to turn logic on its head.
Our Government, and those who elected them, do not realize how stupid they are. The illegals do though.
