While the bill has failed several times since 2001, supporters and opponents of the measure say it stands a good chance of passing this year, given President Obama's support (As a senator, he was a cosponsor in 2007) and the large Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress.

But there are still plenty of lawmakers who fiercely oppose the bill, and members of Congress face many competing priorities. Even if the bill clears committee, it will have to compete with energy and health care for floor time. And if the measure is attached to a broader immigration bill, as it was in 2007, and as many lawmakers support doing again, it could get bogged down in debates over earned citizenship versus amnesty.

The faltering economy could also work against the bill. With so many citizens out of work, "the argument that we need to legalize the workers who are already here doesn't really carry much weight," argues Kris W. Kobach, a law professor at the University of Missouri at Kansas City who has challenged Kansas and California state laws granting in-state tuition to illegal immigrants.

Arizona passed a law that prohibits giving in-state tuition to those in the country illegally.

Its a good law.

And, btw - it is not "undocumented". It's ILLEGAL.

Indeed. After all everybody is documented somewhere. Illegals are often documented several times with multiple identities.

Why do we have to let them into American universities AT ALL?

I don't care how much they pay - they should not be permitted to attend. Period.
