Judge Rules Children of Illegal Aliens Get In-State Tuition
"A federal judge ruled that children of undocumented immigrants cannot pay higher out-of-state tuition in Florida simply because their parents are in the U.S. illegally.
U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore determined the policy violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution by forcing those students to unfairly pay three times as much as Florida residents. Children born in this country are citizens whether or not their parents have legal immigration status," Fox News Latino writes.
"The ruling Friday came in a lawsuit filed by the Montgomery, Ala.-based Southern Poverty Law Center on behalf of several Florida students who were denied in-state tuition because they could not prove their parents are in this country legally."
