OK so if its such a big deal to get the tuition break, why not go through the PROPER channels and get legalized? Become a legal citizen of this country, if youve been here a decade it cant be too hard, and then a resident of Florida and then you get the Florida in state tuition prices. I mean come on man, this is just stupid "Heres someone who breaks the law and its not fair that they have to pay more money". Really? Well DONT BREAK THE LAW by being here ILLEGALLY THEN. Its not my fault your parents snuck in a stayed illegally and I shouldnt have to pay for it and thats exactly what will happem. "Its only another $100 per credit hour, your still getting a great deal for being a resident", whatever man and invalid. I already have to pay much more money in taxes to cover the partrolling, incarceration, support and management of illegals to begin with. THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY, THEY ARE LAW BREAKERS BY DEFINITION so why should they get breaks? more importantly why do I and my fellow tax payers have to be the ones who get hit with the bill? If there here illegally, that means they arent paying employee taxes so the complete burden falls on US.

Why do you think these illegal people want to come to this country? They want everything for free. They get thier healthcare for free now, so lets just increase everybody's taxes and let them go to college for free. I just dropped over $200,000 to pay for my son's education, why not pay for everybody else who wants to go, especially ones who are not even a US citizen. If it was up to me, anyone who claims not to be a legal in this country, or is proven to be a ilegal, should be sent over the border, or sent to sea to never return. No trials, investigations, nothing....Period.

This just goes to show you how our Socialist education system is brainwashing the youth of this country. Why should any illegal alien, for whatever reason, have an advantage over a legal resident of this country?
