Colorado Senate Okays Discount Tuition for Illegal Aliens

After a debate that included references to “jedi mind tricks” and “a galaxy far, far away,” the Colorado Senate on Friday gave initial approval to a bill allowing illegal immigrants to attend public colleges at the in-state tuition rate.

Under Senate Bill 33, students who graduate from high school and have attended a Colorado school for at least three years would be eligible for the in-state tuition rate regardless of immigration status.

The Senate gave the bill first-round approval on a voice vote, and it now needs a recorded vote before it can go to the House.
