The Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance is asking lawmakers to approve in-state college tuition for children who graduate from high school in Mississippi after being brought to the U.S. by parents who lack proper immigration documents.
It's unclear whether there's a need for any change in state law.
The College Board handbook says in-state tuition is available to any minor who graduates from a Mississippi high school and who has lived in the state at least four years.
MIRA is also requesting that the state issue driver's licenses to all types of immigrants.
