(Watch) “Access to Higher Education: Not at the Expense of CT Residents and American Citizens”

April 23, 2016

Should Connecticut provide undocumented residents with access to financial aid available for in-state college students at the expense of American citizens?

I voted no on the proposal.

In voting no, I emphasized the rights and privileges of citizenship in access to college financial aid.

I understand the uncontrolled circumstances of undocumented students, and I advocated for a revamped pathway to residency and citizenship for undocumented students and their families.
