So come one – come all … and pay half the tuition rate that everyone else does! So says the State’s Republican Governor. The Governor is clearly violating federal law, but that just doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Voters in Arizona must be so proud!

Do the people of Arizona have a say in the future of their own state, or is their destiny controlled completely by illegal aliens working with unelected bureaucrats and courts to override state and federal law? Evidently, Doug Ducey, the alleged Republican governor of the Grand Canyon State, believes that illegal aliens should receive privileges as Arizonans. Arizonans will continue to pay for the rope to hang themselves and they will like it, according to Ducey. Who needs Democrats when Republicans have already turned the state blue?

Last week, the Arizona Board of Regents voted unanimously to offer illegal aliens a discounted tuition rate for attendance at state universities. They set the rate at $16,500, which is $5,500 more than the standard rate in-state residents pay of $11,000, but well under the $30,000 American citizens from other states have to pay. One would expect that the governor would immediately work with the legislature to fix this travesty passed by an unelected body of bureaucrats, especially at a time when illegal immigration needs to be deterred more than ever. Shockingly, as if he’s trying to pour lighter fluid on the immigration fire at Arizona’s border, Governor Ducey praised the decision earlier this week, according to the Arizona Republic.

In an interview with KJZZ host Mark Brodie, posted online Tuesdaythe Republican leader said he believes that “somebody that graduates from an Arizona high school is an Arizona kid.”

“I congratulate the regents for a first step around this,” Ducey said. “I do believe that if you are here and graduate from an Arizona high school, you should have the same opportunities that anyone else that graduates from Arizona high schools has.”

So, according to Ducey, are the children among the 66 Central Americans who just marched into the Tucson sector on Wednesday deemed “Arizona kids” as well? Well, they haven’t attended high school yet, but once they step foot here, the unelected courts make them go to primary school on the taxpayer dime. Does that make them an Arizonan so they can get a subsidized college education as well? Evidently so.
