Universities across California are raising tuition costs on all America students, except illegal immigrant students, according to the Daily Caller.
Last month, the University of California school system approved a measure to increase tuition for out-of-state students by $972, but the rule did not apply to illegal immigrant students.
The state’s system board of regents was content on raising tuition for American students, but made sure it didn’t apply to illegal alien students.
“All students — regardless of immigration status — are subject to the same tuition and fee structures, based on their residency status,” UC system spokeswoman Clair Doan said.
The state essentially voted in favor of raising tuition costs on out-of-state students while passing measures in recent years to make it easier for illegals to receive grants and pay for their tuition.
Under California assembly bill 540, illegal alien students can acquire in-state tuition so long as they attended high school in the state for at least three years and earned a state high school diploma.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, Federation for American Immigration Reform spokesman Ira Mehlman said Congress should close the loophole that California is exploiting that only benefits illegals.
While many American families are saving and doing everything they can to pay their children’s college tuition, California is passing countless measures to assist illegals.
Aside from Doan’s giddy liberal-speak, hard-working American families are being cheated and forced to pay even more to attend colleges in California.
This is just the latest stunt from the far-left state to prioritize illegals over Americans, and it has led to many calling on Congress to take action.
By closing the loophole being exploited by California, Congress can block the state from imposing penalties on American families while making it easier for illegals.
American families are sick of democrats prioritizing illegals. Many would agree this should be fully investigated by Congress as it clearly violates the law.
