Judge Richard D. Rogers ruled in favor of the State of Kansas aganst a Lawsuit brough by The Federation for American Reform(FAIR) to repeal the In-State credit to undocumented Aliens.

FAIR, an anti-immigration group, has contended in its lawsuit, that The Kansas law violated the Equal Protection clause of the 14th ammendment of the US Constitution; Kansas violated federal law and the U.S. Constitution when it granted in-state tuition benefits to undocumented aliens, but denied those same benefits to non-resident U.S. citizens.

By The Judge dismissing the Fair lawsuit, upheld the power of State's Rights and left it to the People of Kansas to decide this issue.

Co incedently the CIR ASAP 2009 bill in Congress has a provision do repeal the Federal law and leaves it to the States to decide In-state tuition and benifits.

I hope the citizens of Kansas are smarter than that judge.

I can't find any article referring to the OP thread. Only ones dating years ago. OP help please?

And yes, Kansas will hopefully make a financially correct decision if this is a current issue.

I'll keep looking!

Correction, FAIR is not an anti-immigration group. They are an anti-illegal immigration group.

Isn't this a bit dated - as in 2005?

Wait a minute. Why would CIR ASAP need a provision to repeal the law prohibiting in-state tuition for illegal aliens if, with the passage of this bill, illegals will be legalized? Or, could it be, the provision is intended for the “new” illegal aliens who will surely flock to our country seeking a better life, and yet another amnesty if this bill becomes law?

We are still waiting for the link to this “breaking news.”
