It always amazes me that these states were giving in-state tuition breaks to people who are foreign nationals and therefore definitely cannot be considered residents of the United States let alone a specific state.
Georgia is the latest state to pass denial of in-state tuition breaks to illegal aliens. Currently in-state residents going to Georgia State University pay $1,819 per semester while out of state residents pay $7,276, a difference of $5,457 per semester per illegal alien student that the taxpayers of Georgia have been paying.
How this in any way can be construed as fair to Georgia taxpayers by any group is beyond me, but of course illegal alien proponents will try to play the race and sympathy cards for some poor illegal aliens ignoring the poor of Georgia that are being denied entry even though their parents are footing the bill.
Of course Georgia cannot estimate the savings to taxpayers because they don't track illegal aliens, students or otherwise.
Now if we could just get laws passed denying all that free "tuition" the taxpayers of the United States are paying for educating illegal alien's children from preschool through 12th grade.
Sen. Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, architect of the tough immigration laws, said the state should not subsidize the education of student who won't be able to work legally after graduation. The policy shift also wards off any potential lawsuits that have plagued states like California and New York, he said.
"Georgia doesn't need to be put through that," he said.
Ten states offer in-state tuition to illegal immigrants, according to the National Council of La Raza. Many of those states have faced lawsuits from U.S. citizens paying out-of-state tuition rates.
And rightly so. Why should an illegal alien receive a tuition break while a United States citizen gets charged a higher rate? It's common sense that this never should have been allowed in the first place. I don't care if the illegal alien has 4.0 or not, they shouldn't be here sucking off the teet of the United States taxpayers that have paid for and set up this system over hundreds of years of hard work so that their children would have a better education, not some foreigner who jumped the border and broke our laws.
No sympathy from me.
This man is a piece of shit and doesn't give a shit about anyone. I know he's a white boy because only white boys are this evil.
There a kids who were brought here at a young age and only know this country, who speak perfect English and work and contribute to this country, and we're suppose to tell them they are evil and that because they have been here for 16 plus year they are not residents of the state they've lived in their entire life. That seems like white boy logic, the same logic that stole this land from brown skinned people.
I think it's time the brown skinned people who actually own this land throw out all the fucking white craker haters and open their arms to their Mexican Cousins.
Oh, and by the way, White stole Texas from Mexico. Are we going to even give them their due money or time or respect for that? No, because you're an evil white boy. And that's all white boys can do is steal and hate. Piece of shit!!!!!!

First of all, I think the comment above me seems a bit racist, not all white people feel the same way.
But anyways, I think this "article" was written more out hate then out of realism. These are kids who have been brought here by their parents, they shouldn't pay the price for what their parents did.
Besides how would the taxpayer be affected, in fact if in-state tuition were given to illegals it would boost the economy tremendosly.
It isn't really fair for the child to be doomed once it finished highschool. I think if a illegal child has grown up in the state, without a criminal record, then he/she should get in-state tuition, and be given a chance at success, that what our ancestors did.
Georgia is so consevative,I hate it, not only with immigration but with gay rights,abortion,race, and other controversial subjects, I'm moving out for sure.

Yes, such a hateful country that everyone wants to come. Let's just open everything wide up and not have any laws because of "humanitarian concerns". Sorry, but sometimes logic needs to be used. We can't absorb the more than 1 billion people who would pick up today and move to America. We also can't save the world.
It's amazing that you people who pose as "humanitarians" fight for some person who illegally crossed the border to go to college, when in reality if you actually cared you'd be calling for an abolition of all education spending so that we could send that money to all the starving children of the world.
The hypocrisy rings loud and clear.
