Federal law currently requires colleges that give tuition breaks to illegal immigrants to extend those same breaks to all American citizens regardless of their state of origin. Metro State College located in Denver, Co, announced today they will be violating that law and will allow illegal immigrants to attend the school for $3,358 per semester.

The new rates will reward illegal immigrants for breaking the law to the tune of almost $10,000 per year.

"A Social Security number — that's it," Hernandez said, shortly after Metro State's board of trustees voted 7-1 Thursday to pass a new tuition rate for illegal-immigrant students like her.
Nine digits and a felony or two...
