RANDOLPH - The County College of Morris Board of Trustees has decided that undocumented students will have to pay out-of-state tuition rates after a 9-2 final vote.

The college students affected by the decision don't have solid immigration status, but live in New Jersey. Many other students argue that living in the state is enough reason for them to pay in-state tuition.

Many undocumented students say they can't afford to pay more for their education. Demonstrators gathered before the meeting to make it clear they think they deserve an education at the same rate as their in-state classmates.

Others agree with the decision, saying taxpayer money shouldn't subsidize tuition for undocumented students.

The meeting attracted more than 150 people, with a third of them making statements to the board.
