The Maricopa County Community College District in Arizona is being sued by the state for offering reduced tuition to immigrants whose deportation has been deferred by the government. The students are eligible for work visas, but Gov. Jan Brewer has said they are still not legal state residents and should not be offered lower in-state tuition. "From our point of view, we didn't change our policy because what we were doing all along was accepting federal work permits," school district spokesman Tom Gariepy said.
