So if you’re born and raised in Agawam, Mass. and want to come to a Connecticut college, you need to pay the out-of-state tuition rate but if you enter the United States illegally and reside in Suffield, Conn. you may be able to cut your tuition bill in half.
As Howie Carr is famous for saying … I just want to be treated like an illegal alien. Jamie Muro starts off his article on the News 8 Connecticut website pulling heart-strings immediately.

Lorella Praeli of New Milford is so smart she’s been going to Quinnipiac University on grants and scholarships. She now wants to further her education at a state school, but has found a road block because she’s illegal.
