Students Protest In-State Tuition Being Granted To Illegals

If you've ever been to an out-of-state or private college, you understand the struggle involved in figuring out how to pay for tuition. While student loans help, that is only deferring the payments to a later date--eventually the bill needs to be paid.

No one likes starting their career with a huge amount of college debt--it's inhibiting of personal choice and freedom. Many students are naturally unhappy that 22 states currently offer undocumented immigrants in-state tuition while out-of-state U.S. citizens are consistently charged more.

In 2014, the Virginia attorney general said that students who are in the U.S. under President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program qualify for in-state tuition. The same is true for the state of Maryland.

Conservative website Campus Reform asked students at the University of Maryland and the University of Virginia if they would be willing to sign and tear up mock Social Security cards in an effort to renounce their citizenship to get in-state tuition rates. Many of these students were shocked to learn they were paying thousands more in tuition than undocumented immigrants-- and they were more than happy to protest this injustice.
