Push on immigration issue shows its value to Republicans

RALEIGH (AP) -- Attorney General Roy Cooper's office says it will review a new policy requiring community colleges to admit illegal immigrants. Cooper's office says the review comes after the Community College System asked for advice on the policy yesterday. A Republican gubernatorial candidate pressed state officials yesterday to defend the new policy. Johnston County Senator Fred Smith asked Cooper's office yesterday if it thought the new policy is legal. The previous policy had given the 58 campuses discretion whether to accept undocumented applicants. That policy was changed last month by an attorney for the Community College System. Smith and the other four leading major-party gubernatorial candidates have all come out against the policy. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

I dont think this is fair because immigrants are still going to come over here. WE are hard working people and Ihink that if they don't give us opportunities to prosper. Thats only shutting our doors and making us not being able to have a future. After all we were once all immigrants. i want to go to college but the're charging me out of state fees. I don't think thats fair.

Put Tax Paying Americans First

I am looking to go back to school in the spring. I work full time and was considering CFCC to take some classes in the evenings. I read an article that said admissions are up and classes likely will be full. I wonder how many seats will be filled by illegal aliens? Why is my governement putting criminals before tax paying Americans?

If your 4 'em, no VOTES!

If you are for the illegal aliens and their takeover of our contry, you will not get my vote. We have to vote for what we thiink is right and not for some Party Stooge that will just end up hiking up taxes anyway. Forget my born and bred Democrat party, not voting for anyone giving in to the illegal aliens criminals in NC.
