Something good for today: Maricopa judge rules in favor of in-state tuition for dreamers

The ruling

Saying that federal law determines who is here legally, a Maricopa County Superior Court judge ruled today that "dreamers'' are entitled to the same tuition rates as other Arizona residents.

Today's ruling affects students in the Maricopa Community College system.

Who else might benefit

But it also is likely to buttress arguments by Pima Community College officials who, like their Maricopa counterparts, have offered in-state tuition to DACA recipients.

And it will help support arguments by the Arizona Board of Regents which is attempting to enact a special tuition structure for DACA recipients that, while not the same as in-state students, is less than the out-of-state tuition they have been paying.
