” They pay in-state tuition rates.”
” They “ being the kids of illegals who were brought here as children.
Not the adults.
Also “ Pay “ is the operative word.
Unlike K-12 where all taxpayers provide education
for every child-legal or not.
Then you’re talking about some serious taxpayer money.
And not just Texas , but, every state.

While this is not the topic at hand, since you did mention this subject, I will take one moment to make sure you have this info for use down the road (hopefully on a thread that deals with higher education issues and reform).
Any student receiving the Texas in-state tuition rate will pay a Texas college or university somewhere in the range of $1,180.00 per student-per year to $30,880.00 per student-per year.
That means that any student going to college in Texas at the in-state rate would pay the tuition rate in that range, depending on what college or university they were attending.
Also, Texas grants out-of-state students from anywhere in the United States the same in-state tuition rate if they live in Texas for the same period of time, three years, regardless of what U.S. State their parents claim as their residence. Children of military members on active duty in Texas are also granted the in-state rate as a courtesy to our American service members.

Other than that info, please remember, even when someone else does not, that we are on the verge of exciting financial and economic reform that will make America that shining star upon the hill!
Stay focused and stand firm with us conservatives who are not fighting against ourselves but fighting to get Obama out of the White House and to get America back on track!
