    In order to qualify for the in-state rate, an undocumented immigrant who is applying to a state college must file an application to legalize his or her immigration status or plan on filing an application as soon as he or she is eligible to do so.

    State Rep. Peter Palumbo, D-District 16, Cranston, has filed a bill that largely copies a controversial Arizona law considered the toughest immigration legislation in the country.

    Palumbo's bill, like the Arizona law, makes failure to carry alien registration cards a state crime, and requires police to question people "where reasonable suspicion exists" that the person is unlawfully in the United States.

    The bill, H 8142, filed Tuesday, also targets people who hire illegal immigrants, or who knowingly transport them.
