Contrary to assertions made during the debate over this bill, giving the children of undocumented immigrants the ability to attend college would not have increased the burden on Colorado's higher education system. The bill would have in fact qualified Colorado for additional funding once the federal DREAM Act is passed, and in any case the additional pool of college graduates in Colorado would have economic benefits far in excess of the cost--this is one of the reasons why we send kids to college in the first place.

While Republicans can be expected to sell out to the fringe elements of their party, it is unfortunate that a small number of normally good Democrats were key votes against tuition equity, and we need your help to hold their "no" votes accountable. Take a moment right now to sign our pledge calling on Democrats who opposed Senate Bill 170 to support it next year:\

Thank you. Will do.

So now it’s considered “tuition equity” to grant amnesty to illegal alien DREAMies, and to put them and their extended families (including their criminal parents) on a path to citizenship. What will they think of next?

Don't ask me. My imagine is vivid but it pales in comparison to those who are desperate beyond anything I could ever dream of. Thanks for sending the emails!
