'Dreamers' lose at state Supreme Court

DACA UA Protest 2

DACA UA Protest 2

The Court reviewed the case brought from the Arizona Court of Appeals where that court had ruled [JURIST Report] against in-state tuition for DACA recipients in June 2017.

In a five-paragraph order signed by Chief Justice Scott Bales, the court indicates all of its members agree that existing state and federal laws do not allow the community college district to grant in-state tuition to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The Arizona Supreme Court said it was making its decision known quickly to give the district and its students, as well as the state, as much time as possible for planning.

The Arizona Supreme Court mentioned that a full opinion with an explanation of the Court's ruling should be issued by May 14, 2018. Arizona Board of Regents Chair Bill Ridenour said that in compliance with the ruling, DACA recipients will no longer receive in-state tuition at public colleges.

President of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition Karina Ruiz told the Arizona Republic a lack of access to federal or state financial aid made it hard for DACA recipients to pay in-state rates and the ruling will make pursuing higher education "almost impossible" for them.

Petra Falcon, executive director of Promise Arizona, said in a statement the ruling "basically declares that the future of thousands of Arizona Dreamers simply doesn't matter".

Danny Welbeck recovers from shock miss to save Arsenal against Southampton
Welbeck narrowly failed to get on the end of a Wilshere cross after he hooked the ball back from the byline on 79 minutes. Charlie Austin restored parity for Southampton in the 73rd minute but Welbeck got the victor eight minutes later.

"Our Dreams don't depend on a court ruling", she wrote in another post, "we have put ourselves through school and we are going to continue to do so". "Our universities will work with now enrolled DACA students to help them understand the implications for tuition", he said in a statement.

"While people can disagree what the law should be, I hope we all can agree that the attorney general must enforce the law as it is, not as we want it to be", said Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

DACA recipients have remained protected because of a court injunction suspending Trump's decision to end the program, but so-called Dreamers outside the program - other immigrants who arrived in the country as minors and live here without legal status - are subject to deportation.

The Show's Lauren Gilger spoke with her, and asked what her reaction was Tuesday when she found out about the Arizona Supreme Court's decision. In 2004, 56 percent of Arizona voters approved Proposition 200 that, among other things expressly prohibits illegal aliens from receiving public benefits. In the meantime, undocumented students will start to come to terms with what the ruling means for their education.

Arizona DACA students are also ineligible for federal or state financial aid.

The president of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition, Karina Ruiz, told the outlet that her group will start raising money to fund emergency scholarships because this is a "state of crisis".

"An individual who has received deferred action is authorized by DHS to be present in the United States", the document says. As President Obama forthrightly acknowledged when he established the program in 2012 (after repeatedly saying he did not have the authority to do so), DACA does not bestow legal status on beneficiaries. "Unfortunately, today, a decision was made to block access to education for deserving Arizona students", she said.
