The five leading candidates for governor next year agree on at least one thing: they don't want illegal immigrants to enroll in community colleges.

Democratic candidates Bev Perdue and Richard Moore joined the
three top Republicans yesterday in opposing a decision by the state
community college office to mandate the enrollment of undocumented
individuals.

Moore told reporters illegal aliens should not be allowed to
attend the state's 58 community colleges.

Perdue campaign spokesman David Kochman says the lieutenant
governor opposes the decision by a college system attorney this
month that overturned a policy giving each campus discretion to
accept immigrants.

Republicans Bill Graham, Bob Orr and Fred Smith want the college
system board to override the latest change.
