The Arizona Board of Regents has called a special meeting to discuss a court ruling that says young immigrants granted deferred deportation status by the Obama administration should get in-state tuition.
Thursday morning's meeting comes after a judge ruled that young immigrants granted deferred deportation status are eligible for in-state college tuition.
State senators confirmed Jay Heiler on Wednesday as the newest member of the Board of Regents -- but not before a discussion of some things he wrote years ago.
Heiler was editor of the State Press at Arizona State University in the 1980s and known for his conservative commentary. He has since been chief of staff for Fife Symington when he was governor and now is chairman of a network of charter schools. But Sen. Steve Gallardo said Heiler has not properly apologized for some of what he wrote, reading from the paper.
