Defeat HB 2006 sign now

To: Kansas Legislature
We agree that:
* It is counterproductive to the States interests to allow HB 2006 to repeal the 2004 Kansas Law that allows the children of undocumented immigrants to access in-state tuition in order to go to college, if they have lived in Kansas for 3 years, graduated from a Kansas high school (or received their G.E.D. in Kansas), and sworn to apply for citizenship as soon as they are eligible. 

* The 2004 Law is not unfair to US citizens paying out-of-state tuition. In fact, U.S. citizens have an easier standard to meet to become eligible for in-state tuition in Kansas. 

*Encouraging these immigrants to complete higher education contributes to the Kansas economy, by creating a more highly skilled workforce, contributing more tax dollars and attracting high technology employers to the state.
* The 2004 law does not contravene federal law. States efforts to extend in-state tuition to immigrant students in this way have been upheld by the Federal District Court in Kansas in 2005, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2007, and the California Supreme Court in 2010.
* This is not an immigration issue; this is a human rights issue.
* For these and other reasons, we call on our Kansas legislators to defeat any measure that sacrifices access to education in order to unfairly and unwisely target immigrant children.
