Out-of-state tuition unfair to ‘illegals’

Kokomo Tribune

Indiana ought to rethink a 2011 law requiring students to verify citizenship in order to qualify for in-state tuition at state-supported colleges and universities.

The law might appeal to those who view such students as “illegals,” but it isn’t fair to hundreds of Indiana residents pursuing the American dream.

One of the Indiana law’s sponsors was Republican Rep. Mike Karickhoff of Kokomo. He describes the measure as a matter of fairness. He thinks it’s unfair to have students who are not legal residents paying tuition at the same level as state taxpayers.
