Cal court rules that undocumented students can go to college

The California Supreme Court decided today that undocumented immigrants who complete three years of high school in California and graduate qualify for in-state tuition at California universities. This reversal of the lower court’s ruling allows California to remain one of several states that offer this benefit to undocumented students. The court ruled that the law does not conflict with a federal prohibition on illegal immigrants receiving government financial aid based on residency. The case will likely make its way to the federal Supreme Court for a final ruling. Should illegal immigrants attending California’s high schools be granted the rights of their legal peers?
