Today Congressman Ruben Gallego, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick and Congressman Raul Grijalva sent a letter to Attorney General Mark Brnovich urging him to drop the lawsuit and stop any future action against the Maricopa County Community College District for granting in-state tuition to DACA recipients.
“This lawsuit is nothing but another frivolous political attack against our immigrant community and a waste of our tax dollars. The federal government made clear that DACA recipients are considered lawfully present in our country and therefore qualify for in-state tuition under MDCCC policy,” said Rep. Ruben Gallego. He added, “Republicans in Arizona have reached a new low trying to take away affordable higher education from young people who grew up in our state, pay taxes, and just want to learn and give back to Arizona. I urge Attorney General Brnovich to stop using our state resources for political purposes, drop this lawsuit and stop any future actions to deny in-state tuition to DACA recipients.”
