Arizona Supreme Court strikes down in-state tuition for 'dreamers'

Well now this should just be common sense. The fact that it went to the State Supreme Court is ridiculous in my opinion, but at least reason prevailed in this case.



Arizona colleges can't give in-state tuition to young immigrants covered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Monday. The court issued a brief decision order saying justices unanimously agreed with the Arizona Court of Appeals' ruling that said existing federal and state laws don't allow the Maricopa Community Colleges to grant in-state tuition rates for DACA recipients.


It's bad enough that Americans are getting fleeced by the education system, making sure incentives are reserved for American citizens should be a no brainer.



Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said he wasn’t surprised to see the ruling because his office has maintained all along that colleges and universities were violating state and federal laws by granting in-state tuition to DACA recipients.

“It’s about time someone held them accountable, and that’s my job. My role as AG is to make sure you’re following the law,” he said. He said he’s sympathetic to the DACA recipients’ arguments because he’s a first-generation American. But he said his job isn’t to delve into policies, but to uphold the law as it’s written.

“What makes this country unique and great … is because the rule of law means something,” Brnovich said.


More common sense! I love it.

It focuses after a second or two.

Looks like it's just an animation when the site loads.

I consider dreamers citizens and deserve to be treated like citizens. Not their fault our politicians can't compromise and come up with a solution.

That sounds reasonable.
From a taxpaying American Citizen
point of view.
But not to those American leaders in the pocket of
the communist agenda drug cartels of course.

I agree. When college costs and student loan debt are already so high for citizens and legal immigrants, we need to first take care of legal residents.

While I agree on principle (although I don't consider them citizens...because they're not citizens), the reality is that they are not legal citizens at the moment.

If you're not a legal citizen, should you be counted as a resident of a state?

I know, it brings a lot of questions along with that (do they have jobs, do they pay taxes, etc., etc.), but the bottom line is that they are not here legally at the moment, therefore they should not be afforded all of the luxuries that citizens are provided until that reality changes.

But like I said, I'm with you--Obama screwed them by doing what he did, but now I think that we need to make good on what our government promised them, even if I disagree with amnesty in general.

This is probably the only time I agree with amnesty or an easier path to citizenship. No criminal record etc
