DREAM Act

Tom Tingle/Arizona Republic

The board overseeing Arizona's three public universities has voted to grant in-state tuition to young immigrants who were granted deferred deportation status by the Obama administration.

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.

A judge says young immigrants granted deferred deportation status by the Obama administration are eligible for in-state college tuition.

Tuesday's ruling from Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Arthur Anderson comes in a lawsuit filed by former Attorney General Tom Horne against the Maricopa County Community College District.

Horne contended that so-called "dreamers" offered deferred action status were not legally present in the U.S and could not get state benefits because of a 2006 voter-enacted law known as Proposition 300.
