Kaine Statement on Extension of In-State Tuition to Virginia Dreamers

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring's announcement today that Virginia students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) status, or DREAMers, will now be eligible for in-state tuition at Virginia's public community colleges and universities:

"Attorney General Herring's announcement that Virginia DREAMers will now qualify for in-state tuition at Virginia's public community colleges and universities is welcome news for our Commonwealth. Access to quality, affordable higher education will provide an additional path to help them reach their full potential and ultimately help grow Virginia's economy as productive members of the state's workforce and their communities. These are young people in whom we have already invested through public elementary and secondary education and who deserve the opportunity to fully give back to the only country they have ever called home."
