TBJ is running an informal poll on whether the community college system was right to bar illegal aliens from degree programs. 72 percent say yes.
Civitas’ polling of actual voters arrives at a similar conclusion.
68 percent of voters believe illegal aliens should be prohibited from enrolling in community colleges and public universities in North Carolina (February 2008).
70 percent of voters oppose granting in-state tuition to illegal aliens (April 2007).
75 percent would be less likely to vote for a candidate who supports giving in-state tuition to the children of illegal immigrants (September 2005).
69 percent believe illegal immigrants should receive no educational benefits at all from the state of North Carolina (August 2005).
