This should be a no brainer, but then again, the idiots that sit on these courts can be liberal morons that can’t make sense of anything.

A state Supreme Court could establish a precedent with nationwide impact when it rules on a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of discounted college tuition for illegal immigrants.
The California Supreme Court has decided to take up the heated issue of whether granting illegal immigrants discounted in-state tuition at public colleges violates federal law. The case (Martinez v. Regents of University of California) was filed in 2005 by a group of out-of-state students and parents who correctly claimed that California’s public university and community college system charged them higher tuition and fees than undocumented immigrants.
A lower court dismissed the suit but, in September, a state appellate court ruled that the lawsuit can move forward. The out-of-state students argue that federal law requires states that provide discounted rates to illegal aliens to offer the same benefit to out-of-state students.
