Virginia colleges can now grant in-state tuition to students previously deemed ineligible because of their immigration status. Attorney General Mark Herring (pictured) made that announcement Tuesday, citing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. That applies to certain young people brought to the U.S. as children. Joseph Montano with the Virginia ACLU says the new status provides economic benefits to both the students who qualify and the Commonwealth. Many Republicans in the House of Delegates say Herring’s policy change shows blatant disregard for his oath of office and the rule of law. They say tuition will now likely go up for everybody.
