In Retaliation For Obama’s Free College Program, Arizona Legislators Want To Pass Additional Bureaucratic Methods Within Education That Could Mean Less High School Diplomas
Phoenix, AZ -- Republicans want to vote and introduce a bill during their first week of session that ties Arizona education to a test equivalent to INS standards
. The additional education impediment appears to be improper because it uses irrelevant methodology in relation to immigrants.
If there is no compelling state interest, one can show with empirical data that it has a desperate impact on immigrants, which would meet the constitutional strict scrutiny test and be challenged it in court if it passes. See Brown v. Board of Ed. and Hernandez v. Texas, 347 U.S. 475 (1954) [finding national origin discrimination against Mexican-Americans in grand jury selection impermissible].
