Illegals Protest For In-State Tuition at University of Michigan

The Detroit Free Press: University of Michigan protest over tuition held on behalf of undocumented students

About 100 students followed suit, one at a time, sitting quietly on the floor as part of a protest calling for U-M to offer in-state tuition to those students who went to high school in Michigan, but are undocumented residents.

They're not the sharpest tools int he shed:

"Today, I stand in silence," said G.S. Suri, a U-M student, who stood during public comment with his mouth taped while a recording of his comments played behind him.

If you're standing in silence, shouldn't you be, you know, silent?

Of Course, having illegals garner the in-state rate will lead to less funds being available for all students.

I also wonder if they get the coveted affirmative action points to increase the chances for their admission.

If The U of M gives in-state tuition for illegals, it would would lead to a rather absurd result:

Legal students on Student Visas from Mexico would be paying out-of-state tuition while Illegal students from Mexico would be paying the lower in-state rate.

What could possibly go wrong?

The taxpayers of Michigan would be busily funding education for illegals.

If the Regents of UofM do enact such a change, I certainly hope the legislature will have the wherewithal to deduct proportionate public funding for the amount given each illegal as part of the in-state tuition break.
