Arizona Supreme Court Denies DACA Students In-State Tuition

AZ Ends In State Tuition for DACA Recipients After Unanimous State Sup. Ct. Ruling					by Tony Lee9 Apr 20180		9 Apr 2018		9 Apr 2018

Because of the ruling, immigrant students protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will have to pay much higher out-of-state tuition at public colleges in Arizona.

Arizona sued the Maricopa County Community District in 2013 for a policy granting DACA recipients in-state tuition.

The Arizona Supreme Court, agreeing with the Court of Appeals, decided that no current federal or state law allows the granting of in-state tuition to DACA beneficiaries.

Bill Ridenour, chairman of the Arizona Board of Regents, said the universities had anticipated and adverse ruling and they've used this time to start lining up private support for scholarship purposes for the DACA students so that their tuition does not abruptly increase.

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. In-state students will have to pay $9,834 next year at Arizona State University, while non-residents will have to shell out $27,618 per year. "Residents pay $86 per credit hour at the Maricopa Community Colleges, compared with $241 for non-residents", according to the Republic.

"These Dreamers grew up attending Arizona schools, and want to pursue careers that will give back to Arizona's communities and boost our economy", he continued.

"It's going to be harder to continue with this journey", she said.

"The university is now looking into all options to assist Arizona high school graduates who are qualified to be in the US under DACA with an uninterrupted educational journey beyond high school", Crow said in the statement.

Like most students, when Carlos Yanez was applying to college, he faced the question of how to pay for it. "I can't afford that", Yanez told reporters at the Capitol on Monday evening. In 2006, voters approved Proposition 300, a ballot measure that denied in-state tuition to students who were not citizens or permanent residents, or to anyone "without lawful immigration status". In the meantime, undocumented students will start to come to terms with what the ruling means for their education.

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.

Genesis Egurrola, the vice president of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition, got the news about the Supreme Court in her inbox shortly after leaving class on Monday.

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.

That includes "a United States citizenship and immigration services employment authorization document" - precisely the document issued to DACA recipients. Regardless of the justices' personal views on the matter, they recognized that both federal and state laws prohibit illegal aliens from receiving in-state tuition benefits.

Edder Diaz Martinez, a DACA recipient, journalism major at ASU and communications director of Undocumented Students for Education Equity, said Monday's decision "completely puts education out of our reach and really just derails the hope and aspirations for these students to better themselves, their communities and their families".
