Bill aims to end in-state tuition fees for illegal immigrants - San Bernardino County Sun

Quote:
"This is the sort of issue that really hits the middle class," said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the group. "States like California are raising tuition through the roof and cutting admissions in the higher education system. Not only are they turning over seats to illegal aliens, they are requiring everybody else to subsidize those kids."

The days of taxpayer-subsidized college tuition could be coming to an end for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants.
Republicans in the House of Representatives have introduced a bill to close a loophole that California and nine other states have used to provide lower-cost college tuition to illegal immigrants.
Supporters of the legislation say it's wrong for illegal immigrants to pay the same tuition as legal immigrants and U.S. citizens to attend public colleges and universities.
"In-state tuition is a benefit paid for by each state's taxpayers in order to improve educational opportunities for their citizens," said Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, whose district includes Victorville and Barstow. "Extending this benefit to students in this country illegally undermines efforts to crack down on illegal immigration and keep college affordable for American citizens and the immigrants who come here legally to pursue the best higher education system in the world," McKeon said.
