At what point should not complying with our immigration laws have consequences ("College bound, but undocumented," Jan. 24)? Assuming that the state university system has a quota for in-state applicants in order to meet budgetary expectations, granting in-state tuition to the children of illegal immigrants puts the children of legal residents of Maryland at a disadvantage.
Children of illegal immigrants are not being denied a college education by if the state does not grant them in-state tuition. Rather, those students will be charged the same tuition and fees as a student from Virginia or Pennsylvania would be charged. And the state taxpayers would still be subsidizing them.
