Nothing like encouraging and rewarding law-breaking.

Idiots!

On the other hand, I’ll spread the word among our local wetbacks to tell them that Connecticut has put out the “Mi Casa, Su Casa” mat for them. Perhaps we will see a decrease in their numbers, here.

Just like in California, this is ILLEGAL. They are sponsoring/financing/giving reason for crime, and organized crime at that.

This is stupid. They’re here illegally and they receive privileges.

Ugh.

So if my kid wants to go to college in CT on state rates, we change her name to Lopez and refuse to provide identification she is a citizen

So, if I appear in their state without documents, I can also get free tuition?

How long before the revolution?

And when it does occur, can I be a member of the firing squad?

This is a RAPE of the taxpayers of Connecticut.

Is it fair that the children of illegal aliens raised here be denied an education at in-state rates? YES, unless their parents can DOCUMENT that they have paid the taxes supporting that educational system - something 99% of them could not do.

Has our ENTIRE society and culture gone INSANE??? Have we become so SELF-DESTRUCTIVE that we are willing to surrender without a WHIMPER to people who are invading our country and seizing the produce of our hard earned labors?

I blame four Presidents for this - a Succession of Feckless Felons - Bush I, Clinton, Bush II and Obama.

Each of those four took an oath of office. That oath required them to uphold and defend the Constituion. That includes all laws enacted on the Federal Level. Immigration Laws are part of that package.

Each and every one of those bastards should have been, and should be, impeached.

Yet we continue to elect to office SIMILAR Congressional Felons who regard their office as a sinecure and a source of permanent employment. Since they control the impeachment process IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

Thus springs all the evils we are experiencing over this illegal alien problem - PLUS MANY MORE.

I hope that does happen and
Connecticut is overwhelmed with illegals. I want it to happen in Mass as well. In fact, I want illegals to buy houses next to the “gated elitists” and show them how to have tequilla backyard parties illegal style.

Of course Connecticut can afford it. With the Economy in a shambles and revenues declining sharply it's as simple as one two three.

This is nothing compared to dealing with a very intelligent high school or college senior that did well in school,took hard courses and faces being discriminated against. Lower performing minority students that scooped up fiancial help because of color. We tell all these kids that race does not matter. It is all equal. Do well in school and things will fall into place. The reality of it was hurtful to my kid. It was not fun watching what happened when hard work and good grades lose out to being of another color.

Even if she doesn’t change her name, you should be able to sue Connecticut on the grounds that it wasn’t your daughter’s fault she was raised in Maryland.

I’d support this law with a couple amendments:

1. The kids have to turn into ICE any illegal parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc, and any siblings who were over the age of 18 when they illegally immigrated. If it is discovered that they omitted names they’d reasonably know about, or, intentionally harbored anyone illegal, family or not, they are immediately deported.

2. They have to serve 2 years in the military, and, when done, they will get US citizenship, BUT:
-they must go to the embassy or consulate of their native country and renounce citizenship (no dual citizen crap)

3. They must sign an oath that says that if they are convicted of ANY felony ANY TIME in their life, that their US citizenship is revoked and they’re immediately deported, no questions asked and at risk of being a “stateless person” since they will have renounced their original citizenship as well.

4. They must be able to prove that when they came here, they were too young to have any say in it.

If you can do all that, you get in-state tuition.
