Two state House Republicans filed a bill Tuesday that would keep state community colleges and universities off limits to “illegal aliens,” including immigrants who qualify for a two-year reprieve from deportation issued by the federal government. Bill 218 H218 [Filed]

As things stand now, immigrants without legal permission to be in the U.S. are allowed to attend NC community colleges and universities but must pay out-of-state tuition.

This is going to an interesting bell weather on the mood of South Carolinians. Illegal aliens students allowed to attend public higher education and aliens allowed driving privildges currently. Is the lesgislation as last attempt to stop a march to lawful status?

Well, maybe it will free up more spaces for our own citizens. The added benefit is encouraging more illegal aliens to relocate to sanctuary states. Self deportation is the cheapest option for everyone.

This is a step in the right direction unlike other political leaders that are basically treating them like citizens. I hope this passes

Illegals are free to attend our public universities. If they were brought here as kids, the process is simple.

1.) Apply for admission as international student
2.) Apply for student visa within 6 months of turning 18
3.) Leave and re-enter the US with student visa
4.) Matriculate and pay international student tuition

It ain't cheap, but it's legal. But they won't do it this way because they think they're entitled to in-state tuition and/or financial aid.

Nope!

Steps 1-4 or go home.

You are from Texas. Why didn't R. Perry or the Legislature propose this? Is it the same reason S.Carolina wouldn't?

Don't ask me; I'm usually mystified by how idiotic Rick Perry and the Texas Legislature are. They're all a bunch of pandering SOBs.
