We don't need to educate them, send them back to their home country.

They are taking tuition assistance from our veterans and active duty soldiers and they want to give assistance to illegals! Really?!?

If you're here illegally, no...you get nothing. You want the benefits of this country, learn the language, follow the rules and become a citizen, just like the rest of us. Otherwise, go home. Not only vets and active-duty soldiers but ordinary Americans have to pay tuition, and my state tax dollar pays for it for illegals??? I don't think so! Not just "no", but "hell no"!!!!!

This bill "allows in-state tuition for illegal immigrants who attend a public or private high school in Colorado for at least three years immediately preceding graduation or completion of a GED in the state and who are admitted to a Colorado college."

When we educate one student, we educate us all. I wholeheartedly support the passage of this bill.

When you educate one illegal you are taking that money and opportunity from a legal citizen, veteran or an active duty soldier. If they aren't here by legal means they should NOT be afforded any rights or privileges that rightfully should be given to legal citizens. This includes welfare benefits, medical treatment, and any other government sponsored programs.

Would you honestly deny medical services? Even in the case of an emergency?

If they were being treated for an honest emergency, no. But that's not always the case, which drives the cost of medical care up for people that live here legally. And there should be no such thing as anchor babies, coming here and having their children and getting government assistance also takes away from honest citizens. If they want to live and work here they should apply for citizenship in the proper way, not sneak over and then suck the system dry.

Kids shouldn't be punished for their parents decisions. I support the bill.
