Important NJ Senate Vote

Sure, it’s the Gay Marriage vote which is getting all the headlines, but there is a far more important issue they are considering

TRENTON — The New Jersey Senate has postponed a vote on a bill allowing some illegal immigrants to pay lower in-state tuition at the state’s colleges and universities.

The Senate is now expected to vote on the bill on Monday.

Outgoing Gov. Jon Corzine supports the measure, which would apply to illegal immigrants who meet certain residency criteria. Gov.-elect Chris Christie opposes it.

Can someone please explain to me Why The Hell illegal immigrants should pay the in-state rate on tuition?

In other words, why you and I and all the legal immigrants who had the nerve to actually follow the law and play by the rules should have to underwrite yet another give away to those who broke the law?


Heck, why no let them vote too?

Oh wait…

    I think California and many other states already do this.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    There are several other states that do, Skyler, you are correct.

    Doesn’t make it right, obviously…especially if California is one of them.

    As much as I enjoyed my recent visit there, mostly because of family and the weather, any state would prosper by doing the opposite of California when it comes to policy. I didn’t get into many political discussions while out there, but I did ask one liberal guy that I had met why he was so serene about the fiscal crisis in California. His response? California is too big to fail and the feds will bail them out eventually. It didn’t faze him one bit when I said not if the rest of the country has anything to say about it. The scary thing is I’m not sure which one of us is delusional.

    Hmmmm…. back in the mists of time, when I went to Rutgers, I paid in-state tuition. Then my mom moved to Florida. I had to jump through fifty-four kinds of flaming hoops to prove that I was a permanent established resident of NJ in my own right to keep my tuition from hopping up to the out-of-state levels.

    Now, though, I could just burn my birth certificate and social security card and I’d be golden.

    To me, it shocks the conscience to think that people here illegally will get a better deal on tuition than will citizens of other states or legal immigrants.

    In a sane world, people here illegally would not be admitted to Rutgers in the first instance.
