High school senior Diego Ramirez from Florida City told lawmakers he’s in the top 10 percent of his class. He’s lived in Florida four years and is undocumented.
“I’ve always wanted to go to college [and] become a businessman because that’s my dream,” Ramirez said.
Undocumented students in Florida have to pay out-of-state rate for college, which is three times more expensive.
Now, a bill to grant cheaper, in-state college tuition to undocumented students may be in trouble.
