A New Jersey college reportedly reversed a policy it approved just two months ago by voting Wednesday to charge illegal immigrants higher tuition rates than other students who live in the county.

The County College of Morris board of trustees voted 9 to 2 to charge undocumented immigrants out-of-state tuition, the Daily Record of Parsippany reports. The vote followed a meeting that lasted nearly four hours and included dozens of people and emotional testimony.

Chairwoman Elaine Johnson and Michael Van Allen were the only votes for the lower rates, the newspaper reports.

CCM’s trustees voted 7-1 in February to allow some undocumented students who live in Morris County into the school after 10 years of barring them admission. They also voted at the time to charge those students in-county tuition rates, according to the Daily Record.

Freeholders, meanwhile, had asked the trustees to reconsider, saying the board didn't want to supplement illegal immigrants' tuitions with taxpayer money.
