Board Will Appeal Ruling on DACA TuitionJune 29, 2017 |
by Antonia Noori Farzan
The Maricopa County Community College District governing board voted Tuesday night to challenge a recent appeals court decision that deemed DACA recipients in Arizona ineligible for in-state tuition. While the litigation is pending, those students should theoretically be able to keep paying in-state rates.
For a week beforehand, groups like Aliento Arizona and Undocumented Students for Equity at ASU had been encouraging their supporters to call governing board members and ask them to fight the appeals court decision.
