Anastasia Mann on tuition for immigrants

Is immigration status a technicality or a revenue source for college students? Rutgers' Stacey Mann has an op-ed piece in today's Star-Ledger that explores the issue:
Mary and Maria were best friends. They went through grade school, middle school and high school together. Both applied to Rutgers and got in. But while Mary’s yearly tuition bill came in at $11,886, Maria’s ran to about double that — $22,796.
Since New Brunswick is a long-standing center for immigration, does that change the role for Rutgers?
