The split agongst Florida Republicans on immigration continues. Juan Zapata was born in Peru. He is sponsoring HB 119.
But some immigrant children aren't as lucky as he was, Zapata said. So he wants to give children of illegal immigrants a chance at success by charging them in-state tuition.
"This really is a bill about access and about kids who have done nothing wrong being able to earn a college education," Zapata said. "These are very bright students, some of them are at the top of their class."
