Bill Advances for Dreamer Tuition
A Democrat-dominated panel in the Iowa Senate has signed off on a bill to give certain young immigrants a break if they want to attend an Iowa community college or Regents University. The bill would mandate in-state tuition for so-called dreamers, young people who were brought to the United States as children by undocumented parents, and who have attended Iowa primary and secondary schools. In the meantime, the Regents universities say at least some dreamers are already claiming status as Iowa residents.
