Some more sanity on the immigration front. North Carolina's community colleges will once again admit undocumented immigrants, who had been temporarily barred. They have to pay out-of-state tuition (roughly $7,700 a year) and must be bumped if a class is full and a legal resident wants in. As I've reiterated over and over, including in an op-ed, this means the state makes a profit. So it is just sad to hear knuckle-headed remarks like the following:
Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton cast the only "no" vote among board members, as he did in September.
"It is simply not the right time to place greater demands on our community colleges," Dalton said in a prepared statement.
