SIGN THE PETITION TODAY: http://www.change.org/petitions/the-new-jersey-senate-assembly-and-governor-we-urge-the-new-jersey-legislature-to-pass-nj-a1659-s2355-and-a3509-s2479-2

From Akin Olla (January 2013):

On Tuesday, January 8th, the youth of New Jersey and their close allies chose to ring in the New Year in their own special way.

Despite having attended New Jersey high schools and being children of New Jersey tax payers (the non-tax paying immigrant being an outdated myth, with some estimates believing individuals actually pay more than their documented neighbors), these students [undocumented youth] are forced to pay significantly higher tuition rates than their neighbors.

After hours of braving the cold, New Jersey United Students wrapped things up with reminders of the bills, A1659/S2355 and A3509 and a reminder that this was just the beginning of something great.
