Trowbridge: Undocumented immigrants deserve in-state tuition

In the most recent Republican Primary, it was pitiful to watch the candidates try to avoid the question of in-state tuition for undocumented resident students. I wish they had all read the article below by Ronald L. Trowbridge, which was originally published in the Houston Chronicle:

Raging now is the heated issue of whether undocumented workers should be permitted in-state tuition. I boldly say, yes - for two reasons: One, educated immigrants pay back more to society than they take. Two, it is ethically right to grant such tuition.   Read more »

Editorial - Why Border Security and Immigration Reform Are and Must Be Linked

On the right we hear, "The border must be secured" and on the left we hear, "We must fix our broken immigration system".

They revealed thousands of incidents of Mexican nationals literally cutting through our border fences and creatively exploiting other U.S. Border security infrastructure. The first video shows a crew of contractors welding and replacing U.S. border fences that had been repeatedly cut
