The Student Senate earlier this month endorsed a bill that condemned
allowing illegal immigrants to pay the same tuition rates as Texans. The measure
was vetoed by student body president Jacob Robinson, who says the Student Senate
is meant for the betterment of each student.
Backers of the plan failed Wednesday night to secure two-thirds of the Student Senate vote to override Robinson's veto, with the final vote 34-25. The bill would have represented the official stance of the A&M student body, but it had no standing on the tuition policy.
It will be interesting to see if the bureaudummies at Texas A&M listen to the will of the students.
