CA Gives Illegals In-State Tuition

As Congress prepares to debate the Dream Act, the California State Supreme Court voted unanimously on Monday to give in-state tuition at public universities to illegal immigrants who have graduated from state high schools. California is one of 10 states to make this offer, and the court ruling is the first of its kind. While federal law prohibits illegal immigrants from receiving college tuition based on residency, California law carves out an exemption for students who attend the state’s high schools for at least three years.
