Posted on 03/16/2011 5:54:36 AM PDT by Blue Turtle
Diego Aguilar of Norwalk told legislators Tuesday that his parents "worry, fight and struggle" to pay his out-of-state tuition fees at Norwalk Community College.
Aguilar graduated as valedictorian of Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk last year, but because he is an illegal immigrant he does not qualify for the lower tuition rate available for state residents. His parents brought him to Connecticut from Mexico when he was 8.

It's about education. It's about money. It's about the law.
I find it terribly depressing that so many people think that we need to bend over backwards and shovel treasure at the criminal class.
So if I rob a bank and get caught..can I trot out my children before the courts asking the judge to keep the money so they can go to school???
Connecticut is a lost cause.When will the taxpayers put a stop these tax increases that will only benefit criminal aliens?and why are these aliens not reported to ICE so they can be deported?
I for one am sick of these criminal alien parasites coming into the U.S. and sucking the life out of the taxpayer.Afterall we do have our own families to care for.
...”because he is an illegal immigrant he does not qualify for the lower tuition rate available for state residents...” DAMN RIGHT! And while you are at it, throw the bastards out!
Wow... bending over for the illegals must be “in” this week.
1. CT protests for in-state tuition for illegals.
2. Utah governor signs bill allowing illegals to remain and sponsor unlimited family members from other countries.
3. Taxpayer-funded LaRaza expands its presence in the U.S.
4. L.A. County in CA caves to hispanic pressure groups; backs away from impounding cars driven by illegals.
So if it is known that this guy and his family are in the country illegally, why isn't the INS on his doorstep right now deporting him and his family?
Wouldn’t a college or university in Mexico be glad to have this bright young man as one of their students to make Mexico a better place to live
I think that if people want to invite illegal aliens into their city or state and give them free tuition, that’s their right. I also think that they should NOT get any federal funds from the rest of us to pay for their decision.
“worry, fight and struggle”. Well isn’t that a novel idea for parents to do. If this child is so smart; let him apply his ability in his own country and how smart do you have to be to steal?
I wonder if he’s aware that Mexico has universities comparable to any in the US. And he can go to them legally!
Hello, I'm calling to find out where I can sign up to get $10,000 'free' from the State of Connecticut each year for four years.
Yes, I am a US citizen.
What exactly do you mean by "when hell freezes over"?
Nah, his Spanish probably isn't good enough....
This would mean that his parents are illegals too, so where are they getting the money to pay the out of state tuition????
but his GPA was probably boosted by taking 4 years of high school spanish...!
We're tired of paying for illegals.
We can't afford it. Go home.
You want to live in the U.S.?
Then, get in line and come in legally.
Send all the illegal aliens caught in the other 47 states to Utah, CT, and LA. Maybe after 2 or 3 million illegals come their way, they may re-think their position.
There is no contradiction here....
We need to deport or imprison ALL illegal aliens, including their anchor babies, seal/secure the border with armed troops, a fence and a wall, and have a lethal response to anyone trying to re-enter illegally.
The Democrats from Connecticut on the Titanic were opening the portholes to let the water out.
You must be a RESIDENT to get in-state tuition price.
You must be a CITIZEN to be a RESIDENT.
His parents brought him to Connecticut from Mexico when he was 8.
Deport them all and we won’t fine the family we call it even.
