ALIPAC Launches National Effort to Stop In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC), a national group which has played a key roll in defeating in-state tuition for illegal aliens legislation in many states, is launching a new campaign to stop new attempts to pass the measure in Arkansas, California, Colorado, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin.
“In-state tuition for illegals legislation replaces innocent American students in the limited seats in college at taxpayer expense!” said William Gheen of ALIPAC. “These bills also violate Federal law, provide taxpayer rewards and incentives for people to illegally immigrate to America, and increasing demands on taxpayers.”
ALIPAC defeated in-state tuition for illegals legislation in North Carolina in 2005 by defeating HB 1183. Since that time, details on how to oppose this unpopular legislation have been circulated to other states resulting in similar legislation failing in almost all states except for Nebraska. The ALIPAC document titled “How To Defeat In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens in Your State” will be distributed anew.
“Wherever adequate public debate happens before legislators vote on these bills, in-state tuition for illegals legislation fails to pass,” said William Gheen. “The nine states that have this measure passed it into law without adequate public knowledge or debate. Our goal is to assure the public in these new states is forewarned and has time to respond.”
A North Carolina poll conducted by the JWP Civitas Institute in 2005 indicated that over 80% of voters were less likely to support any state lawmaker who supported in-state tuition for illegal aliens. Many national polls reinforce the fact that a super majority of Americans oppose any non emergency taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens.
ALIPAC will be deploying citizen activists from around the nation and in each targeted state to inform lawmakers that close to 80% of their constituents oppose in-state tuition for illegal aliens. ALIPAC and activists will use the Internet and talk radio shows in each state to carry the messages.
