Evil Republicans Strike Again.

Now they’re taking awayfree college from illegal immigrants:

The vast majority of speakers who addressed a public comment session at Dalton State College opposed a policy change by the University System Board of Regents that will deny in-state tuition to students who cannot prove they are in this country legally.

Since 1999, the board has been giving presidents of the system’s 35 colleges and universities discretion to waive out-of-state tuition for up to 2 percent of each school’s freshman class to benefit various groups of students, including athletes, international scholars and illegal immigrants living in Georgia who achieved outstanding grades in high school.

Effective July 1, the system will drop the waiver program for illegals in an effort to comply with the state’s new comprehensive immigration reform law.

On Tuesday, students affected by the new policy, their fellow students and their teachers complained the change will force promising students who have lived in Georgia for most of their lives to drop their plans for a college degree.

    Next thing you know, they’ll be taking away free medical care from illegals too?

    I mean, why even cross the border if those mean gabachos are going to make them pay for everything?

    These kids are IN SCHOOL. They’re getting GOOD GRADES. Anyone who takes away their tuition waivers to encourage KIDS who were brought here illegally by their parents to leave the country should be ashamed of himself.

    Actually, if they’re in college, the “kids” in questions are 18 or over, so that would make them adults.

    In do believe there are colleges in Mexico. Just because ours may or may not be better does not mean that everyone in the world has to attend them. If we spent the money that is going to pay for an illegals tuition on an American citizen who cannot afford it then we would be much better off. The excuse that their parents brought them here is crap. It does not make the situation right. Also, who says they are getting good grades? You can get into many colleges in this state with average or below average grades. We have too many of our own to worry about right now before we try and solve the worlds educational needs.
