Colorado Independent | CU Students rally to support ASSET bill to provide in-state tuition for undocumented students


By

Last week, Rep. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo, and Sen. Michael Johnston, D-Denver, introduced a bill that would allow undocumented students who graduated from high school in Colorado access to in-state tuition.

Proponents of the bill argue that in addition to the human rights benefits, the bill would offer the state many economic benefits as well.
