DREAMers and their supporters were on the Texas Capitol steps early this morning in preparation for lobbying legislators on S.B. 1819. They are in Austin to speak to the Texas Senate’s Sub-Committee on Border Security. The sub-committee is part of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations. The bill would remove in-state tuition eligibility for certain children who came to America illegally.
The Texas Senate takes up the issue of repealing in-state tuition benefits for children of illegal immigrants living in the Lone Star State. There will be an emotional debate by people in favor of repealing what many perceive to be a magnet for illegal immigration, and supporters of the current in-state tuition law who consider this to be an earned benefit.
S.B. 1819, filed by Texas Senators Donna Campbell, Brandon Creighton, and Lois Kolkhorst, would amend section 54.052 of the Texas Education Code (entitled “Determination of Resident Status”). The bill addresses the determination of resident status of students by public institutions of higher education. It defines the persons who are considered residents of this state for purposes of the Act.
