Texas A&M Students Blast In State Tuition For Undocumented Students

*** NEWS RELEASE ***
A&M Student Senators Propose Bill Against In-State Tuition for Illegals

COLLEGE STATION, TX — Three student senators at Texas A&M University have introduced a bill in the Student Senate to “oppose measures to give in-state tuition to persons residing in the United States illegally.”

“It’s just isn’t right or fair for illegal aliens to receive in-state tuition, especially when there many out-of-state, legal residents paying more,” said Justin Pulliam, student senator for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Pulliam is one of the three senators introducing the bill.

This past Saturday a few students and former students started a Facebook group entitled “Aggies Against In-State Tuition for Illegal Aliens.” It currently has over 1,100 members.

“The outpouring of support for this bill from the student body has been encouraging,” said Steven Crumpley, Off-Campus Student Senator. “But it has also caused quite a stir on campus, which is good. We welcome student input and participation.”

The bill currently has 34 student sponsors. It will be discussed and possibly voted on tonight at 8pm in Rudder 601 at Texas A&M University.
