Illegal Immigrant Students Have Hope
03/17/2011
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas Senate panel is urging rejection of

a bill to repeal a law granting in-state tuition rates to certain

illegal immigrants at public colleges and universities.

The Federal and State Affairs Committee voted Wednesday to send

the bill to the floor with an adverse recommendation. That means

the bill would die in the current session barring a procedural

motion.

The House approved the bill last month.

The law allows illegal immigrants who meet certain rules to pay

the lower, in-state tuition rates at the state's public

universities and colleges. The Board of Regents said 413 students

enrolled under the law last fall.

Critics argue the statute violates federal law and is unfair to

out-of-state and foreign students.

Supporters say the repeal is driven by fear that the law

encourages illegal immigrants to move to Kansas.
