OK, let’s get this straight: Illegal immigrants paying $7000-plus tuition is not making N.C. community colleges profitable.
Tuition comprises only 12% of the community colleges budgets. It’s like imagining away the costs of building the buildings, paying the light bill, buying the land, etc. etc. So whether any illegal immigrant that attends a community college is being subsidized to the tune of 85% or 90%, neither affects the fact of his being subsized. People who are arguing that illegals make colleges "profit" are being dishonest.
