IA Democrats Seek Clear Rules For Immigrants



Bookmark and Share

Young people in Iowa who entered the country illegally, but have been granted temporary residency through a presidential order are getting work permits and driver's licenses, but questions remain about their access to in-state tuition at public universities and community colleges.
 
Some Democrats in the state Senate want to clear up any confusion. They have introduced legislation that would ensure in-state tuition at community colleges and state universities for students who are accepted, meet residency requirements and commit to trying to pursue legal citizenship.  
 
Bill sponsor Sen. Joe Bolkcom of Iowa City says this would help develop a trained workforce in the state.
 
A previous attempt to pass a similar law in Iowa failed in 2004 and this bill would likely face trouble in the House.
