Immigration bill....

As you might know by now, the proposed legislation that would have allowed undocumented children of immigrants to attend state universities and colleges here in Connecticut at the in-state rate has died in committee.

Republican members of the Higher Education Committee used a fillibuster Tuesday to block any vote from being taken - thus the effort is over.

It was, and remains, a hot-button issue with strong opinions on both sides of the argument. My sense is that it's not going to go away, but will continue to remain a highly-charged issue for some time to come.
