RALEIGH (AP) — Leaders of state community colleges say they want to reverse a ban on admission of illegal immigrants into the local North Carolina colleges.

Some members of the state Board of Community Colleges said they favor reversing the ban on undocumented students, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday. The ban has kept those students out of the state's 58 community colleges for the past year.

Board member Stuart Fountain said Thursday at the board's policy committee meeting the colleges shouldn't stand in the way of anyone who wants to attend.

"Without this option, we are creating a second-class citizenry, a group of people who have no option but to go ahead and join a gang," Fountain said.

The students would pay out-of-state tuition rates of about $7,000 a year.

A study commissioned by the system showed that South Carolina is the only other state that bans illegal immigrants. The study also said taxpayers wouldn't be affected if the students pay out-of-state rates.

The committee members voted to draft a policy to allow admission of undocumented immigrants who graduated from U.S. high schools. It would be at least September before the full board could vote on the policy.

"These young people are here with basically no fault of their own," said board member Joanne Steiner. "I am highly opposed to creating a subculture of people who have no hope."

I'm against that unless they have gotten US citizenship first. If they can go to college, then they can get their citizenship.

We taxpayers have already funded their K-12 education, so why should we or would we give them anything more? This will undoubtedly displace some American citizen kid who is "looking for a better life" in their own country. And, once they have gotten their college education, and were they to respect American laws, they would not be able to work in this country legally without a visa or citizenship--applications for both need to be started in the home country.
