Kansas House Defeats Immigrant Tuition Bill
05/11/2012

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Republican-led Kansas House has rejected

an effort to repeal a 2004 law allowing some illegal immigrants to

pay in-state tuition at public colleges and universities.

The law permits illegal immigrants who meet certain rules, such

as graduating from a Kansas high school, to pay the lower tuition

Kansas charges to residents of the state. The Kansas Board of

Regents says about 500 students participate in the program.

House members defeated a proposed repeal Thursday on an

unrecorded 68-32 vote during debate on a broader education bill.

Those favoring repeal said the tuition program rewards illegal

immigrants and serves to attract others to Kansas.

But other House members said the students who benefit from the

program are working toward citizenship and bettering their lives.
