NH Bill Would Deny Illegal Immigrants In-State Tuition

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Illegal immigrants could see their tuition costs rise at the state’s public colleges if a bill facing the New Hampshire House passes.

The House votes Wednesday on a bill requiring students to prove they are legal residents of the United States to receive in-state tuition rates. Proponents assume a student would have to sign an affidavit and provide documentation as they do to prove state residency.

Opponents argue any child who grew up in New Hampshire and graduated from its schools should be afforded in-state tuition.

The only current in-state tuition requirement is to have lived in New Hampshire for at least 12 months prior to registering.

    Why should an ilegal pay less tuition than a legal citizen from another state?

  2. George Fuller says:

    First it is illegal for a state to offer lower tuition without offering to all students in teh country……..

    Second….Legal Taxpayers are forced to pay to educate these kids K-12

    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
