It's wrong and illegal to favor an illegal alien over a US citizen.

Which isn't the intention here. The state knows no difference. People want to blame the states when there is nothing they can do.

The states do know the difference. Eighteen states say the difference doesn't matter, while 32 say it does.

You say it's true. Up to you to show it is.

Incorrect. State sales tax money is used to fund public colleges in some states. There are 7 states(8th state soon) without a state income tax .

They can say whatever they want. They have no way to make the determination.

We are using a biased source here. It also must be noted that Dreamers are here legally, like it or not.

you want me to prove a negative?

Quote:
At least twenty states and the District of Columbia have “tuition equity” laws or policies that permit certain students who have attended and graduated from secondary schools in their state to pay the same tuition as their “in-state” classmates at their state’s public institutions of higher education, regardless of their immigration status. The states are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, and Washington. The University of Michigan’s Board of Regents adopted a similar policy for its campuses.
^from a nauseatingly pro-illegal website. clearly states that there is, most definitely, something states can do: they can refuse to draft and pass legislation excluding immigration status in their criteria.
