Romer pulls reins on tuition bill ( Illegals Dream Act )
The Denver Post ^ | 03/11/2009 | Tim Hoover

The sponsor of a bill to give illegal immigrants in-state tuition says the legislation won't move forward until it becomes clear whether Congress is taking similar action nationally.

Sen. Chris Romer, D-Denver, said he wanted to see the latest draft of the so-called DREAM Act, which would give illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children ...

Out-of-state tuition can often be two to four times as much as the in-state rate.

A Senate education committee approved the bill after a contentious hearing, but Romer's bill hasn't hit the floor of the Senate chamber yet.

But Romer said the bill will remain in a holding pattern until Congress introduces the latest version of the DREAM Act.

The irony is that amnesty for illegal immigrants, thanks to the dominant leftists making it really happen, will definitely turn the U.S. into a socialistic third world country for the long-term that’s full of all kinds of problems, and this is what the illegals were originally trying to get away from in their countries of origin.

How is this not discrimination against out-of-state citizens?

I would have to raise cain on this one. We are paying out of state tuition at School of Mines because my son wanted to go to school there. Our way of getting around the situation was to actually MOVE to CO to establish residency. Hopefully, next year will be slightly cheaper.
