illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates

BOSTON (AP) -- Gov. Deval Patrick has instructed state colleges and universities to allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates to attend state colleges and universities.

In a letter sent Monday to the Board of Higher Education, Patrick said immigrants who obtain a work permit through a new federal program instituted by President Barack Obama would be eligible to pay the lower rates. Those rates cut in half the annual tuition to attend the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, for instance.

The governor told reporters the directive is in line with an existing state policy that allows people with work permits and valid Massachusetts residency to qualify for in-state tuition. But he said it was only a first step toward comprehensive immigration reform.

It wasn't immediately known how many immigrants might benefit from the Massachusetts program.

But the hard working illegals are going to take the good jobs from the lazy Americans once they are educated.
