Dreamers seeking in-state tuition petition Georgia high court to overturn case | Fox News Latino
ATLANTA (AP) A group of young people brought to the U.S. illegally as children is asking Georgia's highest court to overturn the dismissal of a lawsuit they filed seeking access to in-state tuition at the state's colleges and universities.
The roughly three dozen young immigrants have been granted temporary permission to stay in the U.S. under an Obama administration policy introduced in 2012. Their lawsuit asks a judge to instruct the university system's Board of Regents to allow them to qualify for in-state tuition.
The Georgia university system requires any student seeking in-state status for tuition purposes to provide verification of "lawful presence" in the U.S. The Regents have said students with temporary permission to stay under the 2012 program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA do not meet that requirement......snipped......

Christie gave the illegals in-state tuition in NJ but wants to raise the age to collect Social Security by two years because we are going broke.. no wonder with 18 thousand dollars spent on each illegal here for one year of grade school.. we are flooded with illegals here.. Christie is no conservative with illegals , only the American people , and we all get old. Only alternative is dead.

http://thinkprogress.org/immigration...gns-dream-act/

Christie said that he would only sign the bill if the State Legislature struck a provision allowing undocumented immigrants to access state financial aid programs. The law will allow undocumented immigrants to be eligible for in-state tuition after they attend school for at least three years in the state’s high schools and then graduate. The initial tuition equality bill, which included financial aid provisions, passed through the state Senate last month.

Oh Jesus Christ. What part of paying your fair share do these people not understand? The reason in-state people get in-state tuition has naught to do with the how many years they've squatted on state soil but because they've paid with their taxes! Illegals have jumped the shark with their demands. It's no longer a matter of humanitarianism or basic rights but forcing citizens to bankroll PRIVILEGES. American students are in debt up to their eyeballs even to public institutions; we simply can't subsidize children whose parents worked under the table and sent their cash earnings abroad.

This is why Donald Trump's rally in Norcoss, GA this weekend was one of the most thunderous, enthusiastic rallies I've seen in a long time. They are wise to nip the illegal immigration problem in the bud now, before their state turns into California.

The arrogance of the so-called DREAMers never ceases to amaze me. They have no business being in this country, let alone make demands of us. When they reached the age of 18 1/2, they were officially considered to be out of status. At that point, it was up to them to correct it. Yet so very, very few even make an effort. Correcting it would involve applying to go to college here as a foreign student. Once accepted, they need to return to their own country and get a student visa. When they have that visa, they return here to go to college. But no! Since they were raised without a moral compass, they refuse to do the right thing. Instead, they think that they have a right to cheap in-state tuition. What vile, despicable people they are!

Stand your ground, Georgia!

Agreed and HOW!

The ONLY thing we "owe" Dream Act people is 3 hots and a cot, then deportation OUT of the US with a 10 year ban on coming back.

So I Googled the immigration attorney mentioned in this case, and he is chair of the "Welcoming Atlanta Group" for immigrants and refugees, which erases any distinction between legal and illegal: About Us | Welcoming Atlanta
It was created by the mayor, who boasts that Atlanta's foreign-born population is growing by leaps and bounds but seems unbothered by the fact that native-born growth is less than 1%. He refers to "new Atlantans" even though many can't even speak our language (1/5 of households in the city are bilingual or non-English). You can guess what party he belongs to.

In Florida they can get in State tuition already which is bad. A legal alien student has to go through all the hoops which most of them will not complain about as they know they are guests and legally here but are not green card holders nor citizens and you don't hear that group complain.

However illegal aliens whine and complain about it is not fair how they get treated and they complain about the cost of everything and they want to get the same rights as green card holders...not even the same rights as legal aliens but more rights!

In North Carolina a REPUBLICAN state senator just introduced a bill that would give "undocumented immigrants" in-state tuition: NC Senate Bill Could Give Undocumented Students In-State Tuition. I hope North Carolinians are privy to this and give this man a piece of their mind. He must be in the pocket of that greedy Big Ag that relies on illegals to pick their crops. That and the fact that the short-sighted GOP thinks these Mexican and Central American illegals will soon become citizens and vote for their party.
