Great News on the Minnesota Flat Rate Tuition Bill

A Dreamer sent me this today. It is amazing how Minnesota can move forward while so many other states (including Texas) are going the other direction.

Victory with the Flat Rate Tuition Bill

For the past few years we-immigrants and allies-have been fighting for equal access to higher education for all students regardless of their immigration status. And during the last legislative session we made history! Although we still have to keep fighting for the MN Dream Act, we won a huge victory with the passage of the Flat-Rate Tuition Bill.

Undocumented students have won the right to attend 18 Minnesota colleges for in-state tuition.
