Colorado Senate Passes Illegal Immigrant Tuition Bill

 The Democrat controlled Colorado Senate passed a bill that would give illegal immigrants a discounted tuition rate.

It passed after an amendment was added that stated only illegal immigrants who graduate from Colorado high schools would be eligible for the lower rate.

Students would also be required to state that they are seeking legal status.

Each college or university would have the choice on whether or not it would participate in the program.

The bill is now headed to the Republican controlled house, where it is not expected to pass.

Voting has been completely along party lines.
