Action delayed on A&M student illegal migrant bill
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - The Texas A&M University student senate has deferred action on a proposal to put it on record as opposing in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.
The panel voted 34-19 Tuesday night to send the bill back to its external affairs committee.
The Eagle of Bryan-College Station reports the action came after two hours of debate. 1 of the bill's 10 co-sponsors, Justin Pulliam, said, "This isn't a financial issue. This is about what's right and what's fair. It isn't fair to out-of-state citizens who are here legally."
But according to student senator Taylor Barron, "This is an immigration issue. It does not belong in the student senate."
Illegal-immigrant residents of Texas have qualified for in-state tuition at state universities under a 2001 Texas law.
