Immigrant tuition faces Colo. test

DENVER — A Republican-led committee in the Colorado House could put this year’s attempt at lowering tuition rates for illegal immigrants to a halt.

The House Education Committee planned to consider a bill today that would allow illegal immigrants from Colorado to attend state colleges without paying out-of-state tuition. The measure passed the Democratic Senate earlier this month.

Supporters say the students shouldn’t be punished if their parents brought them to Colorado illegally. Opponents say allowing those students to avoid out-of-state tuition could entice more illegal immigrants. The change has been considered before in Colorado but never passed the full Legislature.
