Why should illegal immigrants get a break?

Yesterday the Utah House of Representatives passed HB241 which removes the capability for illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition to attend colleges and universities. I'm very much in favor of this action. I don't care if you are Mexican, Canadian, or some other nationality, if you are not here legally you shouldn't get a break from the government. To me, this isn't about race, it's about breaking the law and being rewarded for it.

My paternal grandfather came to this country legally when he was 12 years old. Nobody gave him a break, nor did he expect anyone to.
