This past week a state court of appeal ruled against these tuition breaks:
In a unanimous opinion, Justice Rick Sims wrote that the tuition policy "stands as an obstacle" to Congress' objective to limit immigrants' access to public resources...
Kobach said the universities can appeal to the California Supreme Court. No representatives of the universities could be reached for comment.
Our UC campuses must be having a hard time filling classes with American students, so they fight to be allowed to give tuition breaks to foreigners who are here illegally. I'm sure my seniors will be happy to learn that there are so many slots at the UC's.
