Oregon Senate Approves Immigration Bill

The Oregon Senate approved the immigrant tuition bill Tuesday on a 18 to 11 vote. State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend voted against it: “I voted no.  Illegal means illegal. These are not children as was said on the floor of the Senate. These are 18 and older. The only way to get citizens is to go back to the country of origin and enter legally, which is a time consuming thing.” The bill allows some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at Oregon public universities. It now goes on to the House for their consideration.
