Law professor Kris Kobach sued Kansas on behalf of several American students who paid full price for college educations that some illegal aliens were able to get at a discount. A district court judge threw it out, saying those students didn't have standing to sue, and Kobach is appealing.
Now, he's gotten some "heavyweight" help from the Mountain States Legal Foundation and the Washington Legal Foundation. Former Senator Allen K. Simpson and Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) are involved as well. And:
WLF backed FAIR's claim that Kansas has denied the students' constitutional right to equal protection of the laws, and pointed out that DHS has refused to respond to two administrative complaints filed by WLF in New York and Texas, asking the Bush Administration to enforce the 1996 law.
Note the title of this post, because that's what this boils down to. Everyone should be concerned that the government wants to give illegal aliens a better deal than citizens.
UPDATE: There's more on this case here.
