That person apparently writes "Hits & Misses" for that rag, and he offers a "Miss: Hypocrisy Parade":
It's unfair for undocumented Mexican immigrants to pay in-state college tuition when law-abiding children from other states have to pay higher prices. So went the argument as Utah's House Education Committee gave the thumbs up to reversing a law that now lets undocumented high school graduates pay in-state university tuition rates. The other shoe dropped later when the House, by a vote of 73 to 1, passed a bill to more than double tuition-waver scholarships that will give in-state tuition to out-of-state students. A contradiction? Not at all. The second bill is aimed at attracting students from southern Idaho to Utah State University. It isn't that Utah lawmakers don't want foreigners attending our schools, they just want our kind of foreigners.
Dear Ted: Those "foreigners" are actually your fellow U.S. citizens. If you support illegal aliens - who are citizens of another country - over your own fellow citizens, could you please make it official and renounce your American citizenship? Thanks in advance for your assistance with this matter.
