Judge rules universities must offer in-state tuition to those without legal status. —>
A judge in Georgia ruled Friday that students living under President Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program qualify for in-state tuition, Campus Reform reported on 1/4.
“We believe our policy follows the law,” Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia Charles Sutlive said to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “As the Superior Court’s decision will remain on hold during the appeals process, our current in-state tuition policy will remain in effect.”
The ruling contrasts greatly from past decisions by the state’s Supreme Court which previously favored policies opposing incentives for illegals. “I really didn’t think we would actually win this because of all the other decisions we had in the past,” a supporter said to the media according to Campus Reform, clearly surprised at what had transpired.
It’s worth noting that the Department of Homeland Security website states even those under DACA cannot qualify for admissions despite receiving “deferred action” which it explicitly says “does not provide lawful status”.
The left continues to incentivize illegal immigration without regard for those who’ve waited years to enter the country legally. Even if President-elect Donald Trump rolls back open border policies in 2017, individual universities nationwide will likely continue to welcome illegals and operate as “sanctuary campuses”.
Under the rule of Cultural Marxism espoused by the regressive left, anything less would be deemed “racist”.
Freedom University officials said the ruling was “an important victory in the struggle for equal access to education in Georgia” in a prepared statement.
“Congratulations to the courageous undocumented students of the Georgia Undocumented Youth Alliance who were plaintiffs in this case and attorney Charles Kuck who successfully argued the case for in-state tuition. Freedom is a constant struggle, but with undocumented students leading the way, we will win.”
Those who can’t afford out-of-state tuition but would like to enroll in Georgia are simply out of luck. For modern day “liberals”, illegal immigrants come first.
