New Jersey Cartoon: Illegal Immigrants at Rutgers?

I know most of you will disagree with me about the recommendations from Corzine's Blue Ribbon Panel on Immigrant Policy report which recommends, among other things, allowing in-state tuition rates for foreign-born New Jersey students.

That's okay. Just think of me as Ned Flanders.

I just think it's a much more complicated issue than simply "send them home."

The Star-Ledger had an excellent editorial on the subject, which drew out the anger of many readers. Among what they said:

"We may call them law-breakers. We may demand they go home and reenter the country "the right way." We rage on internet sites about how much money they're costing us "real Americans." We demand that our politicians -- the same ones without the guts to design an effective immigration policy -- "enforce the laws on the books." Maybe that makes us feel better, but it doesn't solve the problem. Outrage isn't a policy."
