Attorneys filed a federal suit arguing that scores of American students — who were born in the United States as children of undocumented immigrants — are being wrongly denied the right to pay in-state tuition at Florida’s colleges and universities.

Wednesday’s suit names several South Florida students as plaintiffs, including Noel Saucedo, who had a full-tuition scholarship at Miami Dade College reduced to almost nothing after he could not prove his parents were here legally. Saucedo now attends school part-time because he cannot afford out-of-state tuition rates, the suit says.

If the policy requires parents to be "legal" residents of the state for their children to qualify for in-state tuition, he has no one to blame but his parents, who chose to live in this country illegally.

More of not wanting to obey the law and follow the rules.

So one of them is btching about having to work 2 jobs instead of going to school.

Welcome to the life of the average American Joe who has LEGAL parents and cannot afford to go to college.

Are you happy now? Deal with it. You are not special.

They have an incredible sense of entitlement. So, in their minds, they ARE special. After all, our government has been pandering to their illegal parents for years, so they expect the same treatment, and whine like spoiled brats when they don't get it. I'm sick of the whiny Dreamies, anchors, and their criminal parents. If they don't like our policies and laws, they are free to leave.

Again my friend thank you, For thinking exactly what i was. Why do they feel they are entitled to entitlements. What really gets me these days, is that they feel that they are so entitled, and so much more deserving then our citizens. Bull rightly stated. If they cannot put up with our polices, and our laws, take a freaking hike South of the border.

Before I joined the Military I worked 3 jobs. Yes THREE. A 9-5 office job, Mon-Fri, a retail job Mon-Fri 6-9 pm and a weekend job (usually 8 hours on Saturday and 8 hours on Sunday). My father is not exactly poor and I could get a free ride if I wanted to...but NOPE.

If you want something, you WORK for it. Don't expect it to be handed to you. That is what my father told me growing up. He was part of the one of the last waves of good (LEGAL) immigrants that came to this country.

When I got out of the Army I had to wait a YEAR to qualify for in-state tuition. I have paid taxes since I got my first job and have always worked hard. My parents pay taxes and I never felt like I was entitled to jack sht! He is one of the most hard working people I have ever met... A man with only a 7th grade education turned businessman.

The sense of entitlement illegals and their children have is ridiculous. Your birth certificate might say Born in the US but your mentality is that of a 3rd world country, just like your parents'.

"Give me, give me, give me."

"Why should I?"

"Because I said so".

We are being robbed everyday.

Unfortunately they will win. The law recognizes no distinction between US citizens. This is why it's imperative to get the 14th amendment interpreted correctly..

That policy is a total violation of their constitutional rights. Who ever came up with that policy is plain dumb.
