The New Jersey Legislature approved legislation on Thursday that would allow students without legal immigration status to pay in-state college tuition. Gov. Chris Christie planned to sign it on Friday, a spokesman said.
During Mr. Christies re-election campaign this year, he spoke favorably of tuition equality.
The compromise bill will allow access to in-state tuition for immigrants without legal status who have graduated from a New Jersey high school after at least three years of attendance.
Mr. Christie said the legislation would become effective immediately, allowing students to take advantage of it in time for the spring semester.

What a pile of dog obama on a public sidewalk!
Name one decent politician from that general area of the country.Just one.Because I can’t think of any.
It must be nice to have a state budget robust enough to offer up that kind of largesse....
Jabba the christie strikes again. Cue up the “only Jabba can beat hillary!” hordes of paid bloggers.
I guess that I should have said living politician.

Does this mean no more higher tuition for out of state students??
No. Governor Henry was from Virginia. Not the cesspool state.
What’s next??? Amnesty???
I should have done my research
If it weren't for immigration (legal and illegal), New Jersey would be facing a long-term population decline driven by an ongoing out-migration of its professional class. Moves like this by the state government are simply an attempt to encourage people who grow up in New Jersey to actually stay there for at least another four years.
And hey ... this is New Jersey we're talking about. Legality never factors much into anything there.
You’re damn right that’s what’s next.Boner and company are getting ready to sell us out.Right after the first of the year,expect a full court press for amnesty.
Some people can violate “the law of the land” and be rewarded for it. The only requirement is that you aren’t a U.S. citizen. If you are, you get to pick up the tab.
The Federal Government mandates that we educate illegals through 12th grade. This is merely an extension and several states already do it. Would you rather have them uneducated?
I would have predicted that The Blimp would have done something like this. How dare he bill himself as a conservative when it’s so obvious that he’s a flaming RINO. He can kick around teachers, but then kowtow to criminals AKA illegal aliens. Go jump off a bridge, Fatso. The resulting splash would clean up a lot of NJ.
Christie Agrees to In-State Tuition for Undocumented Immigrants...
One of my daughters finished up a graduate MA out in Oregon some years ago, and I was extremely tempted to say that she was an illegal alien in the application, so I could get in-state tuition rates.
Chris Christie will be the Republican nominee for president in 2016.
FR will go through another:
Not that RINO!
No, please not that RINO.
Better our RINO then their socialist
binge and purge cycles
