Helping children

Posted By on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 at 6:37 AM

After reading both the D-G coverage and John Williams' coverage here, I don't think it's by any means clear, as the Beebe administration argues, that Joyce Elliott's effort to provide in-state tuition rates to all graduates of Arkansas high school with sufficient state residency is illegal.

It is meant to stop throwing up obstacles to undocumented children. I'm with UA Chancellor David Gearhart. This bill merely prohibits discrimination, it doesn't produce it. But it's a rare public official with the backbone to stand up to the anti-immigrant forces.
