The Colorado Senate last week approved Senate Bill 11-126 to give in-state tuition rates to illegal alien students. The bill would give illegal aliens a financial advantage at the expense of American students whose families are struggling to put their children through school. There are only so many admissions, so each illegal alien admitted would displace a qualified American student.
The bill has been assigned to the Colorado House Education Committee .
The bill will be heard by the Education Committee on Monday, April 25, 2011, at 1:30 in the Old Supreme Court Chambers in the State Capitol.
1. Go there Monday and testify against the bill! Why? Your testimony will publicly oppose the bill. It will place on-record facts that clearly show the bill is in violation of Federal and Colorado law (more info below). There are very few chances to make a difference in the legislature each year. This is one of them. The committee is the only place where testimony will be heard. You can make a difference.
2. Call and email. The House Education Committee consists of the following Representives. Do call and/or email them. But keep in mind that on this short notice, public testimony on the bill is really the best way to make your opinion known.
