    What??? Become a gang member if he has to pay the tuition EVERYBODY else pays??? Is that the same as threatening to become a prostitute if you don't give someone welfare? Well, if that is the case, go for it - problem solved! No skin off MY back. There are many in this country who go uneducatd due to hardships and are not given a free pass. Oh yes, and they still maintain their family values.

    Citizenship for illegals is next followed by secession of a few states.

    New Jersey 101.5 FM - In-State Tuition Bill for Illegal Aliens Never Gets Voted On

    All I can say is we really lucked out by electing Christie. This would have passed with him in charge.

    Would you please send some of that common sense to CA? We are broke because of all the perks given to the poor plus the illegals which make a high percentage of the poor.

    I believe it's pending. Not sure how up to date this map is, but it looks like only 4 states PROHIBIT it. Pathetic.

    I'll try and find the case, but I read a while back that a group of "out of state" parents who were paying higher tuition than the illegals getting "in state tuition" were suing, claiming the law was discriminatory. Which it is.

    NJ legislators tried to claim "It costs nothing". How dumb do they think we are?

    Here's one in CA. Not sure of the outcome.

    Another case pending in TX.
