Illegal Immigrants Get Affirmative Action

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a bill to require the state's public universities to give undocumented aliens in-state tuition privileges.

The bill mimics the law in ten other states, including California, New York, Texas and Illinois.

'We should stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents. We should stop denying them the chance to earn an education or serve in the military,' Obama said..

Affirmative action benefits can be substantial. A study by Princeton sociologists Thomas Espenshade found by listing one’s race as 'Hispanic' instead of ‘White' increased the likelihood of admission by 130 points on an SAT.  Compared to Asians, the study found, Hispanics receive a 240-point advantage.

Outrage? Understatement.
