Should undocumented students who were brought to Kansas by their parents receive in-state tuition?
Asked at Dillons, 1740 Massachusetts St. on January 29, 2013
“Yeah, I think because they are going to be staying here and contributing to our economy, it seems like a good idea.”
“ Yes, because, no fault of their own, they were brought here, and they want to make a living. This is America, the land of opportunity, so why should we hold them back?”
“ No, I don’t think they should receive in-state tuition. I worked for the SRS for four years, and I saw the way laws are right now. Undocumented workers are getting a lot of benefits from the state. They are not paying benefits. That needs to be balanced out.”
“ If they are not born here, I don’t think so. If they were born here and their parents weren’t, then yes.”
