Correct me if Iím mistaken, but isnít it a violation of federal law for an illegal alien to work in this country? Isnít this bill encouraging people to violate the law? Yet, unless illegals both live and work in the state of Maryland for a specified period, they are disqualified. Well, blow me down.

A bill providing in-state tuition discounts for illegal immigrants just cleared the Senate on a 27 to 20 vote -- and the issue moves to the House.

The bill requires that illegal immigrants live and work in Maryland for three years before they qualify for lower tuition at state colleges and universities. It is a higher bar than legal citizens who move here from out of state.

MD SB 167 provides that Active duty members of the US armed forces and Honarably discharged vetrens residing in Maryland also be exempted in paying the nonresident tuition rates.

MD SB 167 does not require a MD state income tax to qualify for the student resident tuition rate, but says that if as individual, or an individual's parents or legal gaurdians have MD state tax information, that information be provided to the "communitity college" being applied to.
