…can illegal aliens get sob-story coverage for their complaints about being denied in-state college tuition benefits. The USAT headline: “Illegal immigrants face threat of no college.”

Some states are making it harder for illegal immigrants to attend college by denying in-state tuition benefits or banning undocumented students.

In the past two years, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia and Oklahoma have refused in-state tuition benefits to students who entered the USA illegally with their parents but grew up and went to school in the state. That represents a reversal from earlier this decade, when 10 states passed laws allowing in-state rates for such students….

…Opponents say students shouldn’t be penalized for their parents’ actions. Helping them is “the right thing to do even if it’s unpopular,” says North Carolina state Rep. Pricey Harrison, a Democrat who introduced a bill that would prevent state institutions from asking about students’ immigration status.

Yeah, because blanket sanctuary gag orders to protect illegal alien youths have worked out so well. Ask San Francisco.

Only in America.
