  • No, I think they should be sent home.

  • I am assuming you mean if they are here for school?? No, I do not believe they should have to pay any different than anyone else.

  • I agree with lovin angels, they are illegal! They shouldn't be allowed to be here.

  • If they are known illegals, they can't get in to college in the first place. They would need some kind of form of documentation before they can get in, so it would be openly known that they are illegal. IF it's known that they are here illegally, they should be denied admittance not charged more.

  • If they are illegal they shouldn't be allowed to attend school. They should be sent home. They are breaking the law!

  • If they're illegal they wouldn't be able to be accepted into college anyway

    Answer by Evansmommy91 at 4:42 PM on Oct. 6, 2010

  • Why are they accepted into college if they are illegal? Go home and apply for a school visa! Then, they should pay the normal non-resident tuition for public and regular tuition for private.

  • They should pay $0 because they don't get to go to college. You can't break the law and receive rewards for that.

  • If it's known they're illegal, they won't be able to get into college anyway! But if it's unknown, I think they should pay just like out-of-state people would. Because from what I understand, you get charged more if you're going to a college that's out of your homestate rather than one that is.

  • I am sick of people being so threatened by immigrants. Sabrina is right, if the person is illegal, they're not getting into college in the first place.
