UT/TT Poll [EXCERPT]
The Texas Legislature left in place a policy that allows undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities if those kids graduate from Texas high schools, live in the state for three years and apply for citizenship. And Texas voters are divided on that, with 41 percent in favor of the policy and 43 percent against it.
What started as a bipartisan idea in the Legislature more than a decade ago is now appealing to 61 percent of Democrats and only 26 percent of Republicans, the poll found.
“In-state tuition, like the numbers on gay marriage, is hard for lawmakers to do something about because they get a lot of resistance,” Henson said. “There’s a lot of ‘no opinion’ on this among Republicans.”
