In a new legal filings Brnovich tells Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Connie Contes that Arizona law clearly permits him to sue to “enjoin the illegal payment of public monies.” And the attorney general says that the policy of the Arizona Board of Regents allowing those in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to pay the same as other Arizona residents is a subsidy of public funds that runs afoul of a 2006 voter-approved law limiting in-state tuition to those “lawfully present” in this country.
