Citizenship Test For Students

Louisville, KY – A Lexington lawmaker has filed a bill that would forbid public universities from enrolling students who can't prove citizenship.
Representative Stan Lee of Lexington says he introduced the bill partly because of a private scholarship fund started by officials from Lexington Community College, the University of Kentucky and the Lexington Hispanic Association.
The private fund was created to help undocumented students pay for higher education. Lee says that only legal citizens should be considered as candidates because of limited enrollment of schools.
