I don't know. I think in order to go into a state college, which they are allowed to do and in some states at the in-state fees, you have to have signed up for the draft.

Here is a list of people who have to register: Register with Selective Service

College financial aide: FinAid | Student's Guide to FinAid | Selective Service Registration

Again, we shouldn't even be having this conversation because they should have been deported per the law.

Very good points. I have to agree. Nothing but deportation is acceptable!

A better question is, why is it, only men are required to register for selective service when women are now allowed to do every job in the military? Imagine if it were reversed; imagine a law mandated, that punitively targeted women to do something that men had the option of doing.
