Immigrant tuition petition drive is all about bigotry

July 10, 2011

Regarding the petition drive to suspend the law granting in-state tuition to illegal immigrants: At least the immigrants are trying to better themselves by getting an education that will lead to jobs so they can become self-supporting members of society. The reason people are signing the petition has nothing at all to do with money. It's about bigotry.

It's not as if the immigrants will be getting free tuition, after all. They will pay in-state fees.

This is just another example of how this country clings to any opportunity to discriminate against a group of people, in this case against Hispanics. This petition has bigotry written all over it.
