This week, the Florida Senate will consider the Post Secondary Tuition bill and decide whether to grant a tuition break for illegal students who are living in the country illegal. This issue relating to illegal immigration and college students has greatly divided the Republicans in the Florida Senate.
Democrats, many Republicans, Gov. Rick Scott, several former governors including Jeb Bush and Charlie Crist and many news media outlets have piled on — Scott and Crist once opposed the idea, but now support it.
Some Florida colleges and universities already allow in-state tuition for students in the US illegally. Florida International University, for example, was the first to do so. But the University of Florida doesn’t allow in-state tuition for illegal immigrants because it’s against federal law.
