Why, we wonder, did the House Education Committee vote in support of Rep. Glenn Donnelson's HB241, which would repeal in-state tuition for undocumented students? Did our representatives even listen to the stories of hard-working people trying to make a better life for their families, of children who came here of no choice of their own, of star students with 3.8 GPAs who try again and again against all the odds? We're talking about children!

To target children pursuing higher education is unethical and runs counter to our state's values of compassion, community and inclusion.
