In addition to Oklahoma and California, eight states have laws that grant in-state tuition to undocumented students if they meet certain requirements. Opponents of the laws have argued that undocumented students should receive that rate only if it’s available to all students — including those who traditionally must pay out-of-state rates.

Until last year, Oklahoma even allowed undocumented students access to financial aid at state expense although few participated. House Bill 1804, the state’s landmark immigration reform bill, changed that. Students already receiving state-funded scholarships and tuition waivers were grandfathered in, but the changes cut off help for future students who couldn’t prove legal residency.

Some states have gone so far as to ban undocumented students, according to stateline.org.

OK won't let that happen. HB1804 stops it.

I think illegals should be banned from any and all educational systems throughout and in this country. They are not undocumented. They are damn illegals and they are criminals.

Is that the same California that is asking for a federal bailout?? Yeah, thought so. But remember, illegal immigrants are supposed to be good for the economy....Right.
