Arizona Cuts Off In-State Tuition for 'Dreamers'

AZ Ends In-State Tuition for DACA Recipients After Unanimous State Sup. Ct. Ruling

Hasson said more than 600 DACA students earned an associate's degree or a certificate from a Maricopa community college, and this ruling is a concern for the 2,000 DACA students now enrolled at their colleges.

For Hispanic representatives of the state, such as Rubén Gallego of the 7th Congressional District, the Court's decision "will slam the door on thousands of Arizona students who want nothing more than to pursue an education", he said in a statement through Twitter.

Monday's order is not a major surprise. "Residents pay $86 per credit hour at the Maricopa Community Colleges, compared with $241 for non-residents", according to the Republic.

What is surprising is the speed at which the seven-member court reached a conclusion.

In January, people marched in solidarity with DACA recipients at the Women's March to the Polls at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix.

As Brnovich noted, Arizona voters in 2006 "approved Proposition 300 with 71.4% of the vote".

The court said it issued its brief order in order to allow colleges and students affected as much time as possible to plan.

More to the point, Heiler said that 150 percent figure appears to cover the actual cost of instruction.

"What this decision means is that the education of these students are on hold", Martinez said. By contrast, tuition and mandatory fees for those who started at UA a year ago is $12,228.

But this policy, if enacted, could result in further litigation.

That is a different legal standard than the 2006 law which deals with "lawful immigration status".

WAKANDA in the Spotlight of New AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR 'Chant' Special Look
This is an impressive collection of posters, but you may have noticed that there are two notable absentees. Tom Holland wasn't allowed to read the 'Avengers: Infinity War ' script in case he leaked the plot.

That comes down to the nature of DACA.

The Arizona Supreme Court has made a decision to put an additional obstacle to around 2,000 undocumented young students who arrived in the country as children (Dreamers), in their struggle to lead a normal American life. Undocumented youth are ineligible for federal financial aid and Pell grants.

That provides some basis for Ridenour's belief that dreamers will qualify. She said that when she heard about the verdict, she immediately thought of her younger brother, who is a sophomore at ASU.

Arizonans have been hostile to the idea of giving undocumented immigrants state services, including in-state tuition.

The AZ Supreme Court's decision to block Dreamers from in-state tuition is a awful blow to AZ students who want nothing more than to pursue their American dreams.

The legal fight started shortly after the DACA program was instituted.

Bales said the high court's decision doesn't impede any action Arizona lawmakers may take to extend in-station tuition rates to undocumented students, although doing so may run afoul of a constitutional mandate barring the Legislature from undoing the will of voters.

Tom Horne, then the attorney general, filed suit.

"We are disappointed with the Court's decision, but are now reviewing the ruling with legal counsel to ensure the District is taking the appropriate steps to comply with the Court's decision". Bill Ridenour is the chairman, and said, "Obviously the universities have anticipated this ruling, or an adverse ruling and they've used this time to be able to start talking to the DACA students and they've also used this time to be able to start lining up private support for scholarship purposes perhaps for the DACA students so that it's not such an abrupt increase in their tuition". Other community colleges also have instituted similar policies. A full written opinion will be issued by May 14, he said.

Appellate Judge Kenton Jones, writing for the court, said the decisions by the Obama administration to let those who arrived in this country illegally as children to remain and work "do not translate into the recipients eligibility for in-state tuition or other state or local public benefits".

The Show's Lauren Gilger spoke with her, and asked what her reaction was Tuesday when she found out about the Arizona Supreme Court's decision.
