To the editor:
The illegal aliens who are students in Kansas colleges qualify for in-state tuition which out-of-state native born students do not. There is a federal law which states that no noncitizen shall qualify for benefits which citizens do not. This would certainly apply here.
I paid out-of-state tuition for two of my sons to attend Kansas University because at that time our family lived four miles over the border in another state. My family has been in Kansas since the 1800s. My husband and I were both born in Kansas, as was my oldest son. I and many members of my family are KU alumni. I would think that would make a difference, but it doesn't.
In a discussion with a local legislator on this matter, he told me all my sons needed to do was go to school at KU for one year and they would qualify for in-state tuition. I don't know who told him that, but it is not true.
The only place these illegal people belong is at the end of a very long line of people who are waiting their turn to enter legally.
