4. "The justices turned down an appeal from lawyers for a conservative immigration-law group that
contended "preferential treatment" for illegal immigrants violated federal immigration law."

http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/washingtondc/sc...

The high court rejects an appeal to California's policy of giving in-state college tuition to state high school graduates who are in the country illegally. The action leaves in place laws in 11 other states that permit illegal immigrants to obtain in-state tuition.

The court's action turning down the appeal is not an official ruling, but it leaves in place laws in 11 other states that permit illegal immigrants to obtain in-state tuition. They are Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin.

Another 12 states have explicitly refused to grant in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. For its part, the federal government -- through the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations -- has taken no steps to enforce the federal provision.

Citing this confusion over the meaning of federal law, the Washington-based Immigration Reform Law Institute had appealed the California case to the Supreme Court. Kris W. Kobach, a Kansas lawyer and counsel for the group, said the federal law "will become a dead letter in any state where the legislature is willing to play semantic games to defeat the objectives of Congress."
