Arizona Supreme Court rejects in-state tuition for ‘DREAMers’

[Ed. – It will be interesting to see what federal courts do with this.  Because you know that’s where it will be going.  Not that it should, of course, but the festival of improper litigation will just keep motoring along — unless we put a stop to it with courageous political action — until the Supreme Court of the United States has to rule on your mother’s hairdo.]

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. …

For example, in-state students at Arizona State University pay $10,640 this year, while non-resident students pay $26,470. Residents pay $86 per credit hour at the Maricopa Community Colleges, compared with $241 for non-residents.
