Yesterday, Florida Democrats said it was time to “do what is right” for Florida’s Hispanic community, regarding legislation that is moving through the Senate giving in-state college tuition to children brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.
So where does the Florida Democratic Party’s own candidate stand on the issue?
In 2006, Charlie Crist Opposed In-State Tuition for Illegal Immigrants. “Crist, like Gallagher, said state lawmakers did the “right thing”earlier this year when they rejected a bill allowing children of illegal immigrants to pay the same tuition rates as Florida residents.” (Gary Fineout and Beth Reinhard, “Cuban Americans Courted; The Republican Contenders To Replace Gov. Jeb Bush Are Trying To Make Major Inroads With Hispanic Voters,” The Miami Herald, 6/10/06)
