Senate Set For Midweek Debate On Immigrant Tuition

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A bill allowing children of illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges is scheduled to be taken up by the state Senate in the middle of the week.

Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller said Monday night he’s expecting a great deal of debate and a lot of proposed amendments to the legislation.

Miller, D-Calvert, says the bill will come up on Wednesday. He says the Senate could have two sessions on that day, because of the length of debate.

The measure would require children of illegal immigrants to graduate from a community college or receive an associate’s degree before they could get in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges.

    That they are even debating this issue for ILLEGALS shows how out of touch with reality our representatives are. There should not even have to be a discussion. ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL and no benefits of any kind should be rewarded to those who break the laws.

      I could not agree with you more. That goes for welfare as well! They want benefits then they better gain citizenship first.
