Tennessee Immigrants Push for In-State Tuition
Some graduating Tennessee high school seniors are pledging to carry on with their education despite being in the country illegally.
Tomorrow, students and their supporters around the state will tie on blue ribbon bracelets symbolizing their commitment to education and what they call "tuition equality."Students who can't prove citizenship are not eligible for in-state tuition. According to the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, those students must pay three times as much as their classmates to attend public universities in Tennessee.
