Illegal Immigrants To Get A Cheaper Rate For College Than American Citizens In Massachusetts

Who says crime doesn’t pay? It certainly does if you’re an illegal immigrant who wants to go to college in Massachusetts.

Gov. Deval Patrick wants to allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates to attend state colleges and universities.A senior administration official told The Associated Press that Patrick will send a letter to the state Board of Higher Education on Monday instructing schools to grant the resident tuition rate to illegal immigrants who obtain a work permit through a new federal program instituted by President Barack Obama.

The money involved is substantial.

The flagship University of Massachusetts Amherst costs $26,645 this year for nonresidents, compared with $13,230 for residents. Bunker Hill Community College costs $5,640 this year for residents, compared with $13,880 for nonresidents. Framingham State costs $8,080 for residents this year, compared with $14,160 for nonresidents.

If you’re an illegal alien who broke the law to enter this country and you want to go to Massachusetts Amherst, it’ll cost you $13,230. Meanwhile, if your son is an American citizen from New Hampshire who has worked hard, obeyed the law and played by the rules, as a penalty for being an American citizen it’ll cost you $26,645 a year to send your son to the same school. That’s not just corrupt; it’s immoral when American politicians are rewarding people for breaking the law while they penalize their fellow Americans.

    It’s more than enough already. Citizens first. Not last. Everything is backwards. I’m pretty sure this is happening elsewhere.

    mr stockton knows well that leaving out critical facts is one of the easiest ways to lie….in other words, give a false impression for the purpose of inciting racial intolerance.

    here is only one part of what he left out….

    ’12 states already have laws allowing illegal immigrants to claim state residency and pay in-state tuition; this month, Maryland became the first to adopt such a law by popular vote. The others are California, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.’

    oklahoma and texas give a break to immigrants on college tuition and THEY HATE EVERYONE…..especially immigrants.
