In-State Tuition For Undocumented Students 
Undermines Federal Law!

Looks like the Arkansas legislature has decided to offer in-state tuition rates 
to undocumented students (so called “nontraditional documented”), regardless of their legal status!

 

 Credit

HB 1684 has been re-referred as amended by the Senate back to the House Education Committee for 4/4/2019.  Here is the agenda set for the Education Committee in the House tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m. If the bill passes out of the House Education Committee again, it will travel to the House floor for its of final destination of passage. 

Secure Arkansas suggests that we contact all 100 members of the House once again and urge them to VOTE NO on HB 1684 to block aid to students with “nontraditional documented immigration status” which can mean unauthorized aliens… but it could mean anything! 

“Nontraditional documented immigration status” was never defined in HB1684.

It appears that HB 1684 allows a state-supported institution of higher education to classify illegal alien students as in-state students, one way or another.

But Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4 of the United States Constitution provides that Congress has the power to “establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” 

So, states are undermining or usurping federal law when allowing in-state tuition legislation that goes against federal law.

Click the link below to read the wording in the bill. We have also included the wording directly below. (We need to refute this bill line-upon-line in the near future… This bill still brings up many questions which must be answered.) 

HB1684

For An Act To Be Entitled

AN ACT CONCERNING IN-STATE TUITION AT A STATE-

SUPPORTED INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION; TO ALLOW A

STATE-SUPPORTED INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO

CLASSIFY CERTAIN STUDENTS AS IN-STATE FOR PURPOSES O

TUITION AND FEES AT A STATE-SUPPORTED INSTITUTION OF

HIGHER EDUCATION; AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.

SECTION 1. Arkansas Code Title 6, Chapter 60, Subchapter 2, is amended 
to add an additional section to read as follows: 
6-60-215. Nontraditional documented immigration status. 
(a)(1) A state-supported institution of higher education may classify 
a student as in-state, limited to the terms and purpose of tuition and fees 
applicable to all programs of study at the state-supported institution of 
higher education, if the student satisfies one (1) of the following 
requirements: 
(A) The student personally holds or is the child of a 
person who holds a Federal Form I-766 United States Citizenship and 
Immigration Services-issued Employment Authorization Document, known 
popularly as a work permit; 
(B) The student has verified that he or she is a resident 
legally present in Arkansas and has immigrated from the Republic of the 
Marshall Islands; or 
(C)(i) The student’s request for an exemption under 
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals has been approved by the United States Department of Homeland Security. 
(ii) The student’s exemption shall not be expired, 
or shall have been renewed. 
(2) A student who satisfies one (1) of the requirements under 
subdivision (a)(1) of this section shall have: 
(A) Resided in this state for at least three (3) years at 
the time the student applies for admission to a state-supported institution 
of higher education; and 
(B) Either: 
(i) Graduated from a public or private high school 
in this state; or 
(ii) Received a high school equivalency diploma in 
this state. 
(b)(1) The Department of Higher Education shall promulgate rules 
necessary to implement this section. 
(2)(A) When adopting the initial rules to implement this 
section, the final rule shall be filed with the Secretary of State for 
adoption under § 25-15-204(f): 
(i) On or before January 1, 2020; or 
(ii) If approval under § 10-3-309 has not occurred 
by January 1, 2020, as soon as practicable after approval under § 10-3-309. 
(B) The Department of Higher Education shall file the 
proposed rule with the Legislative Council under § 10-3-309(c) sufficiently
in advance of January 1, 2020, so that the Legislative Council may consider 
the rule for approval before January 1, 2020.

It appears that the majority of the Arkansas legislators are in support of giving illegal aliens taxpayer-funded benefits.
