There are few things I have wrong with this idea:
Christie, although I have huge respect for you since you did go to my High School (LHS in NJ), I don’t think this newest idea of yours is a good one. This isn’t fair. If anything they should just be allowed to go to college period. This is totally unfair for out-of-state kids! So a kid who is a citizen of this country and lives out of state pays twice as much as someone who is not a citizen in this country to go to the same school?!?! That is not right. If anything make them (the illegal immigrants) pay the out-of-state tuition and have everyone else pay the same price to go.
Speaking as a person who is paying out-of-state tuition to go to a SUNY school, I think that is totally unfair for out-of-state college kids.
You already made one mistake cutting all of the school’s funding in the state with one swipe, and then bringing a portion of it back just a few months later. Please don’t ruin your chances of re-election by doing this.
Let us start first by giving them the ability to get into the school.
