House Votes to Bar Illegal Immigrants from State Colleges

MARCH 1, 2007 - Posted at 8:02 a.m. CST

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House has voted to ban illegal immigrants from the state's colleges and universities.

Lawmakers today endorsed the bill 122-to-35. It also requires institutions to guarantee to lawmakers that they have not knowingly admitted anyone who is in the country illegally.

Supporters say that by allowing schools to educate illegal aliens, the state is essentially paying people who break the law.

Critics say the ban would punish students who entered the country illegally as children.

The House rejected an amendment to let students who meet Missouri residency requirements receive in-state tuition while applying for permanent residency.
