The Oregon House has voted to extend resident college tuition rates to some young illegal immigrants.
The House's 38-18 vote on Friday sends the measure to the Senate. In the last decade, similar legislation has failed twice.
The measure would allow students to qualify for in-state tuition at the Oregon's seven public universities if they've attended an Oregon high school for at least three years and lived in the United States for at least five.

Congratulations to the Oregon taxpayers and the moms and dads whose little junior is going to lose a spot in “college” to an illegal alien.
ITS “alien” NOT “IMMIGRANT” . That is all over our statutes. And i’m tired as hell of paying for these free loaders. The Government let them in and gave the welfare— Now the government can get them out of here and jail any employer that pays these parasites.ADIOS!!
They’re not worried a bit ~ the kid who gets booted off at the end is black.
Out-of-state students who pay higher tuition should sue the state. After all, it is not their faults that their mommies and daddies chose to reside in other states!
This means that the illegals have already cost the state billions in free High School education for them for at least the last 3 years. Now they get to fugg over legal residents by taking their spots in college.
HEAR THAT!!! They gotta ‘swear’ they’ll follow the rules...just like they’ve been ‘following the rules’ (NOT), their entire lives.
Oregon’s entire government structure is dominated by liberals, who I have watched over 50 years come into this state, not for it’s beauty and culture, not for what it was when they got here, welcomed by we rubes, but to CHANGE IT! Just like the current crop of illegal aliens...they don’t accept our laws or culture and they ARE changing it!
ALL CULTURES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL! I can tell you this was a better place before big city liberals invaded and changed OUR HOME and CULTURE and LIVES!
Yeah, let’s reward those who are good at hide n seek
Tell that to the Oregon legislature because, fur shur, they took the action of preferring foreigners over Americans ~ with a clear understanding of who was going to have to get off at the end of the train.
“ITS alien NOT IMMIGRANT “
Thank you! I fixed that on my blog.
Oregon House passes illegal ALIEN tuition bill - Esquivel fights the good fight
This really makes me mad. One of my daughters went to the University of Oregon because she wanted to get a degree in Interior Design. She did, but we are still stuck with huge education loans, even though I paid off as much of it as I could at the time. Very high tuition for out of staters.
So Oregon rewards criminals with extra “rights” (the right to entitlements) while preparing to decimate the “rights” of law-abiding citizens (massive gun-control legislation).
Folks, these are the enemies of America that the John Birch society warned us about.
Yeah, it stinks for USA kids. I moved 10 miles over the calif/oregon border and had to pay out of state tuition for my kid who was born and raised in Oregon.
Just amend any benefits bill for illegals with an amendment to allow them to purchase guns.
Now that you mention it...also today....
Massive Gun Ban Introduced [in Oregon House]
Isn’t this some great legislation to come out on Washington’s Birthday! How insulting is that!
“Yeah, lets reward those who are good at hide n seek”
LOL! For sure!
“Out-of-state students who pay higher tuition should sue the state.”
Federal laws already mandate that if a state gives illegal aliens in-state tuition, it must also give it to out-of-state US citizens.
Specifically, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, §1623 states that public post-secondary institutions need not admit illegal aliens at all, but if they do, these aliens cannot receive in-state tuition unless out-of-state United States citizens receive this benefit.
All that is needed is for students to bring an action against the state. Problem: They have to be first injured before they can sue. That is why similar suits have not made it past appeals - the students had not yet started to pay tuition.
Cancer inflicted by rats and fed with your tax dollars. your not to far behind detroit and flint.
IMPOVERISHED THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES W/ PRESSURE GROUPS IN THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
These impoverished countries have cunningly determined that amnestizing their pressure groups on US soil forces vote-crazed US politicians to handover zillions in foreign aid. The financial benefits politicians derive from these issues are huge--establishing a permanent Dem majority of Third World "pressure groups" exchanging votes at the ballot box for foreign aid.
Chain immigration is a horrific result of amnesty. All the old folks plus the extended family back home----will invade---salivating at the thought of gorging on US benefits.
REFERENCE Citizenship for young illegals triggers chain migration of extended families. The Washington Times | Feb 15, 2013 Editorial Entitlement spending and immigration are two issues that threaten Americas financial future. The two controversies meet in the case of the newly arrived elderly, many of whom have discovered they can cash in on an overly generous welfare system.
The scam is simple. Senior immigrants typically live with their foreign-born adult children who already have gained their US citizenship. After five years of green-card status, the parents can apply for citizenship.
From 2000 through 2011, about a million persons aged 60 or over were granted citizenship, accounting for about 13 percent of total naturalizations. Often, the immigrant children are highly educated and quite well off, living in upscale homes and driving expensive cars.
Their elderly parents standard of living is often well above that of most Americans, thanks to their childrens success. The only factor considered is income, and language and distance barriers render it nearly impossible for U.S. authorities to verify whether they have income in their home country.
Medicaid for recent, elderly immigrants is practically a given. They frequently take advantage of Section 8 housing benefits, which can provide an extra place to stay on weekends after keeping an eye on the grandkids during the weekdays.
Elderly illegals crowd waiting lists for Section 8 housing to the extent that the lists get closed to new applicants, resulting in a particularly perverse outcome: Many of those shut out are genuinely poor. (Excerpt) Read more at washingtontimes.com ...
