STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Senator Catherine Miranda, chair of the Arizona Legislative Latino Caucus, released the following statement on the Arizona Board of Regents’ decision to grant in-state tuition to Arizona dreamers.
“Today is the day for which Arizona's young dreamers and our Latino communities have long hoped. Finally our dreamers will be able to seek higher education at an affordable cost, fulfill their dreams as college graduates and soon join our economic workforce to help build a stronger Arizona,” said Senator Miranda. “I know that by allowing dreamers access to our state universities we will see an increase in these students applying, attending and graduating. These are students that have been oppressed for far too long and they are ready to bring innovation to our economy.”
“Thank you, Regents, for your courageous decision and for putting the best interests of Arizona first. I am delighted in the outcome of this decision and optimistic for the bright future in store for Arizona.”
