The California Supreme Court has accepted a case that could drastically impact the amount undocumented immigrant students pay to attend state colleges.

The case challenges a law known as AB 540, which allows students who have attended a California high school for at least three years and graduated-amongst other criteria-to qualify for in-state tuition.

A state appellate court ruled the law to be in violation of federal law last September. The state Supreme Court agreed to hear the case late last month.

The case will likely be argued in the fall of this year, said Michael Brady, an attorney for the plaintiffs.

Currently, out-of-state students pay about $18,000 more a year than in-state students

So then how does one justify out of state tuition for anyone?? If you don't even need to be a US citizen then how can you even quantify out of state tuition. I know, let's just say anyone can go to school in CA free of charge and then CA can ask for a federal bailout....

California and several other states give illegal aliens in-state tuition rates, while forcing Americans who do not live in that state to pay out of state rates. This case will set a precedent. Hopefully it will abolish all consideration of the Nightmare Act. It's time for the arrogant, insolent DREAMies to go home and and demand that their own countries provide them with a college education.

That's an excellent question. U.S. citizens and foreigners legally studying in this country on visas, are forced to pay higher rates, while people residing in this country in flagrant disregard of our laws are 'rewarded' with in-state tuition. It defies logic.

Probably because John Q Public turned a blind eye----------if it meant having de facto 'slave labor'. Now; with the economy crashing...........it is high time for the hired help to go home.

Don't rejoice before the case is settled mum. The court might just rule against your wishes.

Not only does it defy logic, it defies the rule of law and common sense as well. With the pending implosion of Mexifornia, any illegal alien with any sense at all (especially DREAMies) would be planning their exit.

Then again, dealing with reality and common sense aren't exactly their strong suits is it?

The word denial is evidently one of their most important examples in their collective lexicons...................

I am not negating the fact that it is indeed Mexifornia. That being said when you take into consideration that illegal aliens play a major role in the financial drain, and the flight of many of its taxpayers, and the warnings of federal funding for education being limited their options are dwindling.

As for her point? She and the rest of her ilk can continue to DREAM about the deferral of their sham on their trip home. With the economy tanking and Americans becoming less tolerant every day, the illegal alien demand-fest is a thing of the past.
