    College tuition is too high to begin with, but to give preference to illegals over American citizens in other states is just immoral and wrong.

    @Concerned_Cit wow, this is BS, so undocumented get in state tuition, but if my kid leaves Florida and goes to Colorado he pays out of state tuition or has to live there a year before he get in state rates.
    Handing America over on a silver platter.

    Ridiculous! Undocumented immigrants should get NOTHING other than a bus ride back to their home land. They are UNDOCUMENTED, for God's sake. That means they are not citizens. Jesus.

    Let's see, a returning, wounded combat veteran who lives out of state pays out of state tuition but an illegal immigrant who broke our laws gets to pay instate tuition. Send in the clowns.

    @GuyFawkes How about the legal immigrants who come here legally, obey our laws, learn our language and assimilate? They pay full tuition but the illegal pays in state tuition? Man something has to change.

    this bill has nothing to do with how anybody got into the country, of if they're a veteran. all it's talking about is those who graduated from high school in the state. it might help if you could actually get on topic here.

    Undocumented Immigrants = Criminal illegals + TaxPayers =$$$ to be paid out for illegal criminals.

    I will always be against this!!!

    Remember that "bleeding heart" liberal's comment during the GOP debates. Rick Perry 2x Gov. of Texas, probably the only state with more illegals than Az., said it was a good investment! Based on the Texan economy, which is doing better than nearly every other state, I'll take his word.

    wtf are you on about... nobody is asking the tax payers to pay their tuition. they have to pay for it themselves. in reality, however, all education should be paid out of tax dollars

    It's not that I don't sympathize with ANY immigrant, but to grant them in-State Tuition assistance in this age of diminishing resources for legal citizens is incomprehensible. Not only that, they are adding yet one more reason for people to immigrate illegally to the USA. It doesn't make sense. It's like the Democratic Party is reaching out to future (illegal) voters. They'll just have to stop in New Mexico and get a driver's license there before driving north to Colorado!

    The illegals should pay the higher rate to repay the state for the free public education, free healthcare, and back state income tax.

    @GuyFawkes I wouldn't describe him as the brightest candle on the cake, but the people of Texas saw fit to elect him twice, and you can't deny the fact that the Texan economy is thriving

    @martydotcom
    Or it might be that TX has zero taxation on business and has lobbied aggressively for aerospace companies and defense contractors to relocate (wisely. Go Texas!)
    Texas is now lobbying firearms manufacturers located in liberal anti-gun states like NY to 'come to Texas' and several are expressing interest. Maybe Andrew Cuomo will make up the missing revenue from NY out of his pocket and Bloomberg's pocket?
    Has nothing to do with illegals invading TX. They don't bring jobs. Faked ID's don't add to the tax base, but they DO draw $Billions from the economy- ask California.

    Not the brightest candle- funny!
    My sister and her family live in Houston.
    Texas has a lot going in the right direction, for sure-
    but please keep Rick Perry. Yikes.

    College children of illegal immigrants really don't have a choice if their parents brought them here illegally. They should be able to have an affordable education, regardless of their parents choice to illegally immigrate.

    I agree, let them go back to Mexico and let Mexico pay for it. Illegal means ILLEGAL.

    @johnny_potseed They won't stave, the parents take them back to Mexico and feed and educate them. They are not our responsibility. They live here, illegally, they go to school paid for by our taxes, illegally, they get every welfare benefit under the sun on our dime, illegally. This country is bankrupt and it's time to put our citizens FIRST.

    @earl I agree, but will say, as humans we have a responsibility to all children. First ours, then everyone else's. Children should not go without.
  • #143

    @johnny_potseed You are ignoring the fact that they and their parents are here in violation of our immigration laws. I am responsible for feeding my children, not children who are here illegally. Deport them to Mexico.

    New form of slavery - deprive working class people of the fruits of their labor & monies for their families thru TAXATION & give to those who have done NOTHING to deserve it.
    It is Slavery .

    This is just wonderful. A citizen kid from a neighboring state has to pay premium rates to go to school in Colorado (or a number of other states) while the illegals kids get "preferred rates". Just wonderful. I sure hope Costa Rica works out so I never have to come back to this cesspool of a country

    @stepped_in_it Well my son has the serious money. Got to have a money man. My oldest daughter has the business skills to keep the wheels turning. Youngest Daughter has the social scene down pat and will most likely take over the immediate area's night life schedule. Have a couple of extended family down there watching the place and doing as little as possible. I call them the roadies. Now I got your for the Compound maintenance manager.. And the granddaughter for muscle and the odd shoplift. I don't see a problem.

    @Medicinebow It is a shame that the Democrats who control both of those beautiful states have destroyed them with taxes and illegal immigration. We are looking in Costa Rica.
  • #144

    @earl I'm not sure what you meant by both states. Wyoming is definitely not democrat lead. Wyo. has no state income tax either. Property taxes are low and the people in that State are wonderful. Wyo. has great laws concerning firearm ownership and use.

    this is a huge mistake and these folks will follow california which not only gives free college now also gives the student aid,so they will soon get paid for the prevledge to go to our schools. not to leave out in this economy this money will have to come from somewhere,first bet is from citizens trying to get this same aide.

    folks need to wake up we all seen in 86 what happens when you reward illegal aliens.

    Why are illegals allowed to attend a university? They should be in jail. An illegal was discovered at a Ga. college and was expelled. Good for them.

    Being here illegally is by definition a crime.
    So can I go to France and expect the French to pay my tuition in French colleges- and demand they also teach me in English?
    Pretty sure they would send me packing.

    I believe this bill was more targeted towards those who were brought over illegally by their parents as children, meaning they really had no choice in being an illegal immigrant. I mean, look at the choices: you can either help these kids get an education so they can become contributory members of society (at least they're trying to go to college!) or you can leave them be to become a burden on society. Either way, they're not going back to where they came from--this is the only country most of these kids, no adults, have ever known.
  • #170

    @ashgreen No, there is another choice, deport the parents and the children back to their country of origin. When a parent chooses to willfully violate our immigration laws, the consequences are directly attributable to the parents,These illegals will be put ahead of legal, lawful Americans. Our country is bankrupt , 300 billion dollars a year in illegal immigration costs. No excuses, deport them , today.
  • #171

    @earl Except these kids are now adults. They are independent of their parents. We're going to punish children for the crimes of their parents? Seems cruel and callous to me, especially since these people are looking to make a better life for themselves unlike the entitled brats that currently populate this country.
  • #172

    @ashgreen I understand your sentiment but you do see that allowing illegals this benefit will only cause thousands more to come here, illegally. If we are going to ignore immigration laws, maybe we should ignore the Civil Rights Laws too.

    All American citizens who are students in Colorado Colleges should sue the state because this policy goes against the U.S. Constitution's Equal Protection Clause.
    The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, provides that "no state shall ... deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

    How is it "equal" to give non-citizens instate tuition, and not give American citizen students that live out-of-state higher out-of-state tuition?

    Just sue the state for denying "Equal Protection."
