    A Federal judge says Florida can’t charge children of illegal immigrants more money to attend public universities.

    FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports from Miami:

    Audio clip:

    A Federal court in south Florida rules college students who meet citizenship and state residency requirements must not be charged out-of-state tuition rates just because their parents could be in the country illegally.  The Southern Poverty Law Center sued Florida on behalf of a group of students, all who were forced to pay out-of-state rates, but who were born in the U.S. and lived in Florida long enough to quality for lower tuition.

    The ruling could mean a tuition drop for thousands of students.
