CU students will rally Wednesday in support of Senate Bill 126, which would grant illegal immigrants in-state tuition to the state's colleges and universities if they have attended high school in Colorado for at least three years.

CU Democratic Regent Monisha Merchant was expected to speak at the rally.

Eleven states have passed legislation to grant in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, including California, Illinois, Kansas, New York and Texas.

Supporters say the bill in the Colorado Legislature would be a long-term investment in the state's future. Opponents say it would reward illegal behavior.
