Video: Cheaper Tuition For Immigrants Bill Tabled Thursday

A bill to provide immigrant students with cheaper college tuition failed in the Senate judiciary committee today. To get the proposed in-state tuition rates, undocumented immigrants would have had to graduate (or get a GED) from a Florida high school after three years, among other requirements.

Why are you calling these people "immigrants" when they are illegal aliens? Your biased reporting is out of control.

Juan

Your comment proves how out of touch you are with immigration issues. Go educate yourself, kthnxbai!

Isn't being forced to pay to educate children of illegal aliens K-12 enough?

YEAH SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE!!!
What in God's name has happened to those in our OR ANY legislature and community to make them think that illegal aliens should receive ANYTHING but a jail sentence and deportation??? Illegals are no different than Americans who commit crime, they are criminals! If we go along with those imbeciles who pamper illegal thugs, then we must in all fairness, do the same for AMERICAN criminals. Let THEM run free and steal from americans through gov subsidies such as welfare. Let THEM have 'free' (taxpayer funded) educations. Reward THEM for being criminals!

"...The very author of the citizenship clause, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, expressly said: "This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers." Ann Coulter

When read, the 14th ammendment does not give citizenship to the offspring of illegal aliens. That premise is a lie.

Undocumented students are children, often their parents brought them to the US when they were babies. Now if the readers of this column were born outside of this country, and their parents happened to be "illegal" would you not deserve an opportunity to further your studies? It is not the fault of children for the transgressions of their parents! Is the USA a Christian country? Does not sound like it from some of these comments. A college education should be fee for all anyway, or is the money better spent invading and occupying Iraq, Afghanistan, and probably Iran if the GOP gets into office, then God help us all.
