Attorney General Dustin McDaniel opined yesterday what had been clear all along — no law prohibits Arkansas colleges from admitting undocumented immigrants. But here’s the key point: NO (i wrote this incorrectly originally as now) law requires colleges to do a citizenship check. There’s the somewhat far-fetched (and dramatically overstated) concern that a non-citizen might get an in-state tuition break and a student from New York might sue over this unequal treatment, but it’s only a cover for colleges to impose a citizenship check, as Mike Beebe has strong-armed Arkansas colleges to do. It’s a check that produces punitive fees for longtime residents of Arkansas with Arkansas high school diplomas versus, say, Texans, because a handful of them can’t produce a U.S. birth certificate. But we wouldn’t want to discriminate, would we?
