Wait I am confused, when can a U.S. citizen not get in state tuition when they can prove they do in fact live in state?

soccerboy22, et al,

Don't claim US Citizenship when you apply.

Wait I am confused, when can a U.S. citizen not get in state tuition when they can prove they do in fact live in state?
(COMMENT)

There is a law against claiming US Citizenship, when you're not really a US Citizen. But, is there a law in reverse?

Most Respectfully,
R

A US citizen, who is 'not a legal resident of CA', cannot get in state tuition.

An illiegal immigrant, who is 'not a legal resident of CA', can get in state tuition.

I'm torn.

I've been paying exorbitant out of state costs to attend a school in this state because I do not have residency. I would be quite peeved if somebody who was here illegally were allowed the option to pay in state costs.

On the other hand, they have to spend 3 years in a California high school before they can get in state costs. So it isn't like they get to come right from Mexico and start in college at in state costs. They are usually kids whose parents migrated illegally.

Their parents probably don't pay taxes, either. Not much to be torn over.

Everybody pays taxes, period. Illegal or not it starts when one purchases something.
Sorry, not the same thing. Come tell me about it, when those illegal aliens have a four-figure Federal income tax bill.

This is what we get for allowing Liberals to intimidate us into letting them run wild. We have to learn to stand up to them and tell them sit down and shut up.

This political correctness and cries for tolerance from a bunch of two faced do gooders has put the State of California on the vrge of total ruin and the with Obama doing the same thing o the Nation as a whole we have little choice but to stand up to the name calling and Socialist/Marxist agendas.

The Tea Party members get it and they need our suport and we can't let the propaganda from places like the White House and the Obamedia get in out way.

We should never compromise with them because if we try they will once again force things down our throats.

They specialize in saying one thing and doing the opposite and when caught at it they say, oh no you didn't see it right we are doing everything to make it right and all the time they forge ahead.

I'm warning you We are on the verge of desperation and we have little time.

We threw out a Chief Justice a few years ago and no it's time to get rid of the whole Court. Rose Bird was as useless as the Governor who appointed her to stop the death penalty. Now we have that useless piece of garbage back and a Court that is so far lft they almost make Schwarzenegger look like a Republican. Almost.

We should also start working on a recall of Jerry Brown we don't need a reason other than he's a damn liar and we want him out. what we do need is a candidate to replace him with that will stand up to the wackos in Northern California and at the Capital and work to dump the Unions and take the State back and begin to rebuild some of the glory the Liberals have sucked out of it in the last 30 years.

This State went from 1rst to next to last in education, from the 5th greatest economy in the world to near bankruptcy, and all because we didn't stand up to Liberal BS.

Part of the problem in also moral decay and it has to stop. Part of that is ignoring the law and saying illegals can go to college at the instate cost.

Well I say fine, let's enforce the damn laws we have deport them and the problem goes away.

A whole 1,000 dollars? I guess they would have to get paid enough to have that kinda bill.:roll:

And you claim they pay it also? How? With that fake or stolen SS number. If you believe that then I have some beach front property in the South Pole I want you to buy.

I dont understand how you are torn. They are here illegally. So if they don't get caught for 3 years that makes it ok?

LOL. Oh yeah? And just whose social security number does that get creditted to?
Many work under fake SSNs and have taxes withheld from their paychecks. Social Security actuaries estimate that two-thirds of illegal immigrant workers do this, and that the net contribution to Social Security is about $12 billion per year.

And do you realize what that does to the AMERICAN they stole the number from? How would you like the IRS knocking at your door claiming you earned $30,000 you never paid taxes on? Bet you would be so quick to stand up for these criminals.

What I'm confused about is why are illegals being treated better than US citizens? If a Texan can't get in state tuition for Ca. than an illegal alian sure shouldn't be able to.

I bet you'd be quick to stand up for a murderer who used a gun, because conservatives LOVE guns, am I right guys?

First off, "never paid taxes on" would be a strange charge when the taxes WERE paid via withholdings from paychecks. Next, the IRS could probably figure out that Deuce T Deuceson could not possibly hold a job in Minnesota and a job in Arizona simultaneously. Yes, it would suck for the person who had their SSN stolen... assuming that's what actually happened.

Nowhere did I state that I support this activity. Any more baseless slander you'd like to level against me?

Oh, well... that makes it all better then. :rolleyes:
Could you point out the part where I said I was in favor of stealing social security numbers?

These judges are insane with power. They redifine logic and completely ignore their oath to uphold the Constitution. They are basically saying since we won't pass laws to give these people amnesty they are going to bypass us and unilaterally give them amnesty by conferring rights to them as a citizen. They aren't interpreting anything. They are making it up. Law enforcement needs to refuse to comply. Somebody make a stand against this nonsense.

Hmm, interesting.

I took it just the opposite - the fact that they expect poor illegals to pay for college is actually a step away from our recent trends towards supporting them on the taxpayers dime.

Or am I missing something?

No I say kill the SOB that used a weapon to kill someone with. I am not a believer in God but do believe in "Eye for an Eye". Yes I do love weapons and believe that its the right of every law abiding citizen to own one. I also think these low life scum thugs that kill, rob and rape, the liberals love to protect, should be shot down in the street when they are caught.

Have you ever had to deal with the IRS because they are not so easy to talk to? At the very least you would be audited and its is a big deal and expensive even if you have done nothing wrong. Can you pull out 7 years of recipients you claimed on you taxes? And would you like to just because a illegal stole your SS number.

You support this activity when you support illegals being here in the first place. Its not slander when its true. Learn what the word means before you throw it out there son.
