Tom Tancredo's foundation will sue Metro State over immigrant tuition
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo said his foundation is planning on filing a lawsuit in district court in an attempt to block Metropolitan State College's planned new tuition rate for illegal immigrant students.
Tancredo, the president of the Rocky Mountain Foundation, a non-profit organization, said the proposed tuition rate violates state law.
"The legal opinion issued last week by Attorney General John Suthers confirms what we all know, that the action of Metro State is unlawful," Tancredo said in a release. "Administrators and trustees at different state colleges can have honest disagreements about tuition policies but they must obey the law. Metro State must wait for the General Assembly to change the law, and if the law is not changed, they can't make new laws by themselves."..
