N.J. lawmakers advance bill granting in-state tuition for students in country illegally
Star Ledger NJ.com ^ | June 17, 2013

As Congress debates an overhaul to the federal immigration system, New Jersey lawmakers again took up controversial legislation today that would allow students living in the country illegally to pay in-state tuition at the state’s public colleges.

The bill, dubbed the “Tuition Equality Act,” was approved by the state Assembly Budget Committee after a lengthy hearing in Trenton. The crowd in the chamber, which included immigrant students who have been pushing for the change for years, cheered as the committee moved the bill.

Makes sense to me. Charge illegals in state tuition, but charge legal American citizens out-of-state tuition. /sarc

Democrats are despicable, corrupt parasites.

Our elected representatives think they are in office to represent everyone except legal citizens.

I thought there were some decent GOP lawmakers in NJ who created a bill based on the employment provisions of the Arizona law. Of course it would not have passed the Dem controlled statehouse.

Christie and Mayor Booker did nothing when the illegals cut the heads off 3 black college students.

Why have instate tuition at all then ? Can I just come to N.Y. state and say I’m an illegal ? WTF would I want to pay out of state tuition when I can “Obama” or as it used to be called “Lie” and get a discount.

And on top of needing to prove they are legal, they are penalized by having to pay out of state tuition because they are Americans! California already does this and it makes so angry I could scream that we treat our own worse than invaders!

It used to be that governments did only what was in their interests. No more. That philosophy has been replaced by the liberal democrat fantasy that America can do everything for everybody. Soon we may realize that the reality is we can do almost nothing for anybody anymore including ourselves. Just keep printing those Obama-dollars.

The kids who will end up being the only ones paying for college will be white middle class American-born, B-C students.

No. They are subversives who entice foreigners to illegal acts.

They should be imprisoned.

Speaking as someone raised in Hunterdon County (which is still (R) by the way)... I can call NJ a “2 holer outhouse”... one from Trenton to Camden... and one hole (A big hole) from Somerville eastward.

Everything about this state bill is constitutional imo. The Founding States made the 10th Amendment to clarify that the Constitution’s silence about issues like immigration and public schools means that such issues are uniquely state power issues.

So if NJ taxpayers don’t like the idea of in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, but sit on their hands and let state lawmakers pass this bill anyway, then that’s the problem of NJ taxpayers.

‘.. liberal democrat fantasy .. can do everything for everybody....’

‘everybody’ except those who support the AMERICAN system of government that follows our Constitution and Americans who work hard to make honest earnings and pay taxes. The current people in power are not so interested in doing anything ‘good’ for those people.

Why do New Yorkers keep moving to NJ in droves ? Used to be that they were happy with just ruining Bergen, Hudson, Union and Middlesex. Now they are working overtime to ruin Somerset, Morris, Hunterdon and Monmouth counties too.

American students need to sue on the basis this is discrimination. In order to get the low in state rate, college students have to prove they have lived in state and illegals don’t.

Sometimes liberals leave me speechless. I cannot comprehend how it makes sense to charge someone from Mexico less than someone from New Mexico in a New Jersey college.

As a parent that pays out of state for 2 kids, this just burns me up. Out of state tuition is extremely high. They should not even be allowed to go to college here if they aren’t legal citizens.

Foreign students will need to burn their visas.

You can actually have two different rates applied to students in the same family, and Fur Shur no matter what they plan on doing it will discriminate AGAINST AMERICANS.

We need to disestablish New Jersey, reorganize it, and have them reapply for statehood.

It is assumed they will be required to purge themselves of the members of the Anti-American movement.

The overwhelming majority of people in prison or have been incarcerated at some time are democrats. By majority I mean probably 85-90% are/were democrats. This is very easy to prove.

nearly half are black - 95% voted Obama = 45%
nearly 30% are hispanic - 70% voted Obama = 20%
nearly 20% are white, asian, or some polyglot - figure 50% voted Obama = 10%

So, conservatively speaking, if cons/excons voted like their non-cons counterparts:
45 + 20 + 10 = 75% total cons/excons were/are dems

Throw in another 10% for a “shiftless, resentful, sociopath attitude and you come to 85% of cons/ex-cons voting for dems.

Yes, calling all dems criminals is a bit over the top, but it is not inaccurate to say that a super-majority of cons/excons are/were democrats.
