The Oregon State Senate has passed a bill to extend in-state tuition rates to all residents regardless of their immigration status. The vote now goes to the House.

As quoted by Oregon Public Broadcasting, Frank Morse (R- Albany), who co-sponsored the bill, said: “Does Oregon control immigration policy? Do we get to decide who comes and goes within this state? And if we don’t make immigration decisions – what then do we do with these children?”
