Stop all federal assistance to California, that's a starter.
Stop all assistance to Texas also.

The California Supreme Court decision even surprised me and I am a liberal Latino. Not entirely sure what the rationale was for the court to give the green light to low tuition rates for undocumented citizens especially when California charges out-of-state students very high tuition.

Map of States with In-State Tuition Laws | NumbersUSA - For Lower Immigration Levels (http://www.numbersusa.com/content/learn/enforcement/statelocal-policies/in-state-tuition/map-states-with-in-state-tuition-laws.html - broken link)

The map isn't right as it pertains to Oklahoma. Oklahoma does not allow in-state tuition under any circumstance. In fact, they are not even allowed to be issued a state-issued diploma.

According to the link:
Oklahoma passed HB1804 in 2008 which prohibits illegal aliens from receiving in-state tuition, but it allows the state's Board of Regents to award in-state tuition to illegal aliens who have attended an Oklahoma high school for at least two years and graduated. They must also sign an affidavit that states that they are trying to legalize their status or will do so within one year.

Is this incorrect?

That is incorrect. 1804 passed. The other bill was not passed, and it's author was punished for it when he ran for U.S. Congress this past year.

Since then there has been legislation that will not allow the government to issue any state document like a diploma to an illegal alien.

Looks like California's trying to help Mexican illegals claim the state as their own.
For the last 3-4 yr's American citizens have been leaving Ca. in droves. (including myself).

Oklahoma's immigration law HB 1804 (2007)prohibits in-state tuition to illegals.

So the map is atleast 3 yr's out of date.

Note:
If Jeri Askins was elected instead of Mary Fallin, HB 1804 would have been over turned.

HB 1804 was passed just before I got there in 2007. That's one of the reasons I moved there from SoCal. (SoLong SoCal)
