MIAMI (AP)U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore determined that students at Florida’s public colleges and universities cannot be charged higher out-of-state tuition simply because their parents are in the U.S. illegally. Judge Moore reasoned that the policy violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution by forcing those students to unfairly pay three times as much as Florida residents.

Children of illegal immigrants have won similar battles in other states.
