For years, Democrats and Republicans such as Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah have pursued legislation that would enable illegals to get in-state tuition rates, which can be as little as one-third of what out-of-state students pay. While past proposals have made little headway, this one was added to the current bill last week after just minutes of debate.
"It will free eligible students from the constant fear of deportation," said Sen. Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. "We hope to extend Hispanic young people greater educational opportunities, so they may realize the American dream and achieve their potential."
Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, said the financial-aid provision was stripped out, but defended the larger proposal. "We are not a country that punishes children for the mistakes of their parents," he said.
Ok Democrats, Senator Hatch, other highly defective members of congress lets review for a moment m'kay
Higher pool of elgible people at a discounted rate + Increasing rate of expense for the university =Raise in the rates for education for EVERYONE.
Isn't that great? So instead of inconviencing a small group of people who...well... broke the law, and rewarding people who...ya know... obeyed the law we are instead going to indirectly punish everyone.
Thanks US senate
