No special rate for American citizens, just illegals

Michelle Malkin has a post on her blog here about the Shamnesty piecemeal attempts of Dick Durbin and associates with the DREAM Act. 

As Michelle notes:

“…the Dream Act would repeal a clearly worded provision in the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA)”

That provision would be:

Notwithstanding any other provision of law, an alien who is not lawfully present in the United States shall not be eligible on the basis of residence within a State (or a political subdivision) for any postsecondary education benefit unless a citizen or national of the United States is eligible for such a benefit (in no less an amount, duration, and scope) without regard to whether the citizen or national is such a resident.

Remember, the recent Gallup poll on dealing with illegal immigration I posted on here yesterday.   I don’t think giving away the farm is what participants in that poll had in mind.

Why on earth, logically speaking, would you give special in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, when you deny it to native-born and naturalized citizens?  What a slap in the face from the Shamnest front.
