Kansas Immigrant In-State Tuition Appeal

A district court judge in Topeka dismissed the case last year because he said the students weren't harmed by the law. A final decision in this case could affect in-state tuition laws around the country. And in Kansas, hundreds of young people are waiting to see the future of their own college careers.
