More Illegal Immigrant Nonsense

Keeping with the theme of the last post, here's another story about rewarding lawbreakers:

Kansas Gov. to sign illegal immigrants tuition bill

TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) -- A bill offering some illegal immigrants a tuition break at Kansas' public colleges and universities cleared the Legislature on Tuesday and headed to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who plans to sign it.

Am I to assume that "diversity" includes criminals now?

The House voted 68-54 for the measure, which won Senate passage earlier this year.


The proposal extends in-state tuition -- which is much lower than tuition for nonresidents -- to illegal immigrants who have attended a Kansas high school at least three years and graduated or who earned a general educational development certificate in Kansas.

"You're in the country illegally? AND you've already gotten a high school education? Well, your free ride needs to be moving even faster!"

To receive the lower tuition, an immigrant would have to be actively seeking legal immigration status or plan to do so when eligible.

Here's an idea: Let's wait until they actually gain legal status. I can see some of these deals:

"Are you in the country illegally?"


"Would you like to be here legally?"


"Good enough for me."

I'm sure it's not exactly like that, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Proponents contended that many of the immigrants who will benefit have lived and attended schools in Kansas for years and intend to remain in the state.

Why wouldn't they intend to remain? The state is throwing money at 'em.

Opponents argued that the proposal would reward lawbreakers and perhaps even aid terrorists.

"*GASP* You can't say that, you racist!"

"If terrorists come to get a pilot's license at a Kansas university, at least we gave them in-state tuition before they used it against us," Rep. Scott Schwab, a Republican, said sarcastically, drawing boos from some in the chamber.

Boos. In the House of Representatives. Where are all the grown-ups?

Kansas residents pay much less than students from outside the state at public universities. In the current semester, for example, in-state tuition for 15 credit hours at Kansas State University is $1,755, compared to $5,700 for undergraduates from other states.

And yet...they want to give some people the same deal because they're not legal citizens?

...My brain hurts.
