Immigrant youth and their allies are gathering in front of the State House in Trenton today to push for "tuition equity," specifically legislation that would allow undocumented immigrant students who have grown up in New Jersey to pay the same tuition rates as other NJ high school graduates.

Under the bill(s), any student, regardless of immigration status, would be eligible for resident tuition rates at the state's colleges and universities, as long as that student attended a New Jersey high school for at least three years and received a degree to prove the accomplishment.

The rally runs until 1 p.m., in anticipation of Governor Chris Christie's State of the State Address.
