Lawsuit targets Nebraska's immigrant-tuition law ^ | 1-25-2010 | Margery Beck

A Kansas attorney has filed a lawsuit challenging the validity of Nebraska's 2006 law that allows some illegal immigrants to pay in-state college tuition.

Kris Kobach filed the lawsuit Monday in Jefferson County District Court on behalf of several Nebraskans. The lawsuit names the University of Nebraska Board of Regents and other state college boards as defendants.

The state law passed in 2005 deals with students whose parents brought them to the U.S. illegally. To be eligible for in-state tuition, the students must have graduated from Nebraska high schools, lived in the state for at least three years and be pursuing or promise to pursue legal status.

Kobach, who has fought similar measures in other states, says Nebraska's law conflicts with federal law.

Conflicts with federal law? How about conflicts with common sense?

If someone is here ILLEGALLY, they are be definiton not a resident.

“How about conflicts with common sense?”

Kris is an able litigator. He previously relied in good part on the common sense argument and it did not move the court.

The decision in Nebr. will be interesting.
