Arizona Voters to Consider In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens in 2022
 
David Jaroslav

FAIR Take | May 2021

A coalition of big-business Republicans and open-borders Democrats in the Arizona Legislature have managed to force through a bill that puts in-state college tuition for illegal aliens on the 2022 ballot for Arizonans to decide.  Voters in the state previously banned in-state tuition along with other taxpayer-funded public benefits for illegal aliens when they approved Proposition 300 in 2006.

Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) 1044, sponsored by Senator Paul Boyer (R-Glendale), was introduced on February 1.  It legislatively refers placing in-state tuition on the ballot for 2022. If a majority of the voters approve it, in-state tuition rates would be authorized for anyone including illegal aliens who have lived in Arizona for at least two years and graduated from a state high school, the GED equivalent or home school.  In-state tuition in Arizona averages approximately $12,000 a year while the out-of-state rates can be upwards of $36,000.   

SCR 1044 passed the Senate on March 4 by a vote of 17-13 with three Republicans, Boyer, Tyler Pace (R-Mesa) and T.J. Shope (R-Casa Grande)) joining all the Democrats in support.  It initially stalled for two months in the House.  But a small number of Republicans used a procedural maneuver against their party‚Äôs leadership to force a floor vote. On May 10, it passed the House 33-27, with four Republicans, Michelle Udall (R-Mesa), Joel John (R-Buckeye), David Cook (R-Globe) and Joanne Osborne (R-Goodyear), joining all the Democrats to vote yes.

I was in a Zoom meeting with Joel John, and we were ripping him a new one as he tried to explain his vote.

Well, Cyber, guess you're gonna find out next year how the state stands, insofar as "red" v. "blue" goes...

With the Senate and the Legislature with one-vote GOP advantage makes every election a white-knuckle ride.
