Kansas Immigrant In-state Tuition Law

By Sylvia Maria Gross

Kansas City, MO – A federal judge in Topeka dismissed a suit against the state of Kansas over a law allowing undocumented immigrants to receive in-state tuition discounts at state universities and colleges. Out-of-state students sued the state earlier this year, arguing that the law is unconstitutional. Earlier in this year on KC Currents, we heard from the lawyers on either side of this case. Although the judge threw out the case, KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross reports that the battle is likely to continue.
