Amidst all the clamor about a possible Spring amnesty effort by Senator Chuck Schumer and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, patriotic immigration reform scored a major triumph in New Jersey last month
There will be no in-state tuition for illegal aliens here despite efforts of former Governor Jon Corzine (D) to make it happen. Proponents did not have enough votes to carry the measure.
Now that Chris Christie (R) has been sworn in the DREAM Act's local version, which he opposes, is dead. [Instate Tuition for Illegal Immigrants Fizzles, by Jeffrey Diamant, Star-Ledger, January 10, 2010]
New Jersey is broke. Any proposal to grant in-state tuition to the children of illegal alien law breakers is absurd.
Aliens are not entitled to the same benefits as citizens.
