PHOENIX — Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is appealing a judge's ruling that says young immigrants granted deferred deportation status by the Obama administration are eligible for in-state college tuition.

Wednesday's appeal comes nearly two months after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Arthur Anderson ruled that the Maricopa County Community College District could offer the lower rates. Days after the ruling, the Arizona Board of Regents said so-called DREAMers attending the state's three public universities were eligible for in-state tuition.

Former Attorney General Tom Horne sued the community college district in 2013, contending that DREAMers were not legally present in the U.S and could not get state benefits because of a 2006 voter-enacted law known as Proposition 300.

Brnovich says the appeal is about the rule of law and enforcing voter-protecting laws.
