Arizona Court: DACA Recipients Eligible for In-State Fees for Colleges and Universities

A judge in Phoenix, Arizona yesterday ruled that recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) who otherwise satisfy residence requirements can pay the same tuition at Arizona colleges and universities as other Arizona residents. Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Arthur Anderson ruled the federal government determines who is in the United States legally and rejected arguments of the Arizona Attorney General's Office that DACA recipients are in the country illegally and therefor are not eligible for in-state fees.  Here is a copy of the ruling.  Hat tip to Dan Kowalski.
