    TX. State Senate panel OKs repeal of illegal aliens’ in-state college tuition

    Action Alert: Call TX House Speaker Joe Straus, R- San Antonio and explain to him why in-state tuition for illegal aliens is a bad idea. Make sure he hears from you by phone and in writing that in-state tuition for illegals forces Texas taxpayers to pay displace and replace their own children in the limited seats in colleges that fill up each year! Explain to Joe Strause that 83% of Americans surveyed by Rasmussen polling April 5, 2015 said that only those that can prove they are legally in America should receive any taxpayer benefits and that clearly includes thousands of dollars of college tuition subsidies each year! Then get on the phone to every member of the Texas State Senate and tell them by phone and in writing to pass Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels bill (Senate Bill 1819) to end in-state tuition for illegals in Texas this year! (contact info for TX State Senate CLICK HERE)

    State Senate panel OKs repeal of immigrants’ in-state college tuition

    AUSTIN A state Senate committee passed a bill Wednesday that would repeal in-state college tuition for undocumented students.

    The Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee sent the bill to the full Senate on a speedy 4-3 vote, two days after 11 hours of emotional testimony on the contentious measure.


    The legislation, Senate Bill 1819, by state Sen. Donna Campbell, R-New Braunfels, repeals a 2001 provision — signed into law by Gov. Rick Perry — that allows some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at public colleges and universities. Of the 176 people who testified Monday night, five were in favor of Campbell’s bill.


    Witnesses that night ranged from illegal immigrants who benefit from the law to Republicans who say the current policy makes sense economically. Tears were shed by several students and their supporters who said the current policy was essential to how far the undocumented students have advanced.


    It’s unclear what the chances are for the bill’s passage. Fewer than 60 days are left in the regular legislative session. And across the hall in the Capitol, there may not be much appetite for the measure; House Speaker Joe Straus, R- San Antonio, has said he thinks the current policy is good for Texas.


    It’s unknown when the full Senate could take up the measure, but supporters of the current policy aren’t waiting. On Monday, former Republican state Rep. Carl Isett, a co-author of the 2001 bill, will join Bill Hammond of the Texas Association of Business and Juan Hernandez, a former aide to Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain, at a news conference where they will reiterate their support for the in-state policy.


    Senate Democrats have called out their GOP counterparts for sending the bill to the Veteran Affairs Committee’s border security subcommittee — instead of one on higher education or other state affairs.


    “I am aware that our Senate committees don’t have jurisdictional statements, but common sense should prevail,” Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, said Monday. “There is not one single piece of evidence that suggest Dreaqmers pose a threat to the border or to Texas.”
