Monica Villalobos, president & CEO of the Arizona Hispanic Chamber, speaks during a press conference in support of Proposition 308 at Xico Inc in Phoenix, AZ on Oct. 14, 2022.

Years ago, Arizona voters chose to bar college students who are undocumented from receiving in-state tuition discounts. The decision came amid a rising climate of frustration about the southern border and a stalemate on immigration reform.

Today, there's still frustration about the border and immigration laws haven’t changed, but Arizona voters have.

In the recent election, voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 308, which allows undocumented students to pay for college at in-state tuition levels.

In this episode of The Gaggle, we'll take a closer look at what Proposition 308 will do, who it will help, and how it will impact Arizona as a whole.
