Executive Vice President; former Republican Arizona State Senator
"Business leaders want to tap the tremendous talent pool of the 'Dreamers.' We all win when we let them earn their way through college on the same basis as their peers. Our Arizona students are our future Arizona leaders. By supporting Prop. 308 they become self-sufficient, valuable, contributors to our economy and our state."
John Giles

John Giles

Mayor, Mesa, Arizona
"I'm the Republican mayor of one of the largest conservative cities in America. I think it's smart policy to get rid of this artificial obstacle that currently exists for dreamers who want to go to college. We don't want to stop Arizona kids who we've already educated in k-12 from going to college to become more productive and more self-sufficient. Prop 308 will help accomplish that goal."

Mayor, Tucson, Arizona
"This is a matter of fairness: all Arizona high school graduates should be charged the same tuition. Dreamers deserve the same opportunities as any other Arizona high school graduate. Arizona is their home. We must break this unnecessary barrier and allow Dreamers to continue their education and employment right here in their home state."
David Adame

Board Chairman, Chicanos Por La Causa Action Fund
"It's time to start the reversal of very unfair state policy against immigrants, especially those who came as babies and children. Arizona is better than that! Dreamers are Arizonans. We have educated them in our schools since they were children. They have grown up with our grandchildren. It's time for Arizona to allow in-state tuition for Dreamers. I ask all Arizonans to support Dreamers by voting yes on Prop 308."
David Lujan

David Lujan

President & CEO, Children's Action Alliance
"Arizona kids who want to go to college should be encouraged to do so. Right now we discourage dreamer kids from attending college by imposing higher tuition on them that most can't pay. This is not smart policy for our economy, and this isn't the right way to treat people. Please vote yes on Prop 308."

"The Dreamers I know love our country just as much as I do. They attended Arizona public schools, worship at our churches, and some even served in the military as I did. They've lived most of their lives here, and if they graduate from our high schools, they should be eligible for the same in-state tuition as their classmates. Let's get this done."
Tyler Montague

"I love the dreamers. I've met so many of them who embody who we want in this country, and they love being here, and aren't asking for any sort of handout. They just want to earn their way through college and make their way in life. I am confident that when Arizonans sit down and imagine what they would do if they were in the same shoes, they will find both the reason and compassion to vote for Prop 308."

This November, vote YES on Prop 308!"

"Every Arizona high school graduate deserves a fair shot. Dreamers graduating from Arizona high schools should be able to go to college using the same tuition rate as their peers. It’s only fair and it’s the right thing to do. Doing this will open the door for thousands of students to pursue a higher education, which could change the trajectory of their lives, strengthen our economy, and help our state to reach our Achieve60AZ attainment goal."

As a supporter of DACA, I also support allowing DACA recipients to receive in-state tuition. These youth are already part of the American fabric, contributing to the greatness of our nation, and should have the same benefits as the friends, neighbors, and classmates they’ve grown up alongside. Ensuring DACA recipients have fair opportunities to pursue an education has great value not only for them, but for our entire community. I ask for your support for these Arizona students."

Dreamers are children who grew up in Arizona, and they should be considered assets to our communities and our economy. Encouraging them to attend college is the best choice for the future of Arizona. These students should be able to attend our community colleges or universities at the same cost as other in-state students. They don't need a hand out, but they deserve a level playing field."
