Arizona Republican Accuses Adversary of Giving ‘Illegal Immigrants’ School Tuition Discounts

Kari Lake, the candidate backed by Donald Trump in the Republican primary for governor of Arizona, accused her rival Karrin Taylor Robson of give illegals discounts on school tuition and make taxpayers pay for it.

On July 7, Lake tweeted a television ad claiming that Robson “He’s against putting America first.”

“(Robson) voted to give illegal immigrants discounted tuition fee less than American students should have been paying,” he said on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast a day earlier.

From 2017 to 2021, Robson served on the Arizona Board of Regents, the governing body of the state’s public university system.

Lake’s remark indicates that confirmation based on three votes of the Arizona Board of Regents on the enrollment of students who are in the country irregularly. But, according to Telemundo, this statement is partially true.

The media reports that students illegally residing in the United States and graduating from high school in Arizona you can choose a reduced cost of training out of state at Arizona State Universities.

The decision was voted on by the board, including Robson.

The point where what Lake said falls short is that this type of training is not paid by taxpayers.

This discount rate applies to US citizens and permanent residents. which they may apply if they meet the requirements.

Telemundo recalls that in 2018, the Arizona Supreme Court agreed with an appeals court and ruled that DACA students were not eligible.

In response, the Board of Trustees banned Dreamers from teaching in the state.but turned to a 2015 board rule that allowed it to provide lower tuition for DACA recipients in Arizona.
