San Diego legislator proposes in-state tuition for Tijuana residents
Tijuana, Mexico residents would pay in-state tuition at San Diego community colleges under a bill proposed by Assemblyman David Alvarado, reports CBS8 News. It's estimated 1,000 students cross the border to attend classes.
“We live in a very unique region where 100,000 people cross everyday, this means 10,000 families who happen to live in Tijuana, who live on the other side of the border but are still San Diegans,” said Alvarez.
His bill would cover low-income students who live within 45 miles of the border.
