An Arizona immigrant rights group will resume providing counseling and financial assistance to people who need to renew their status under the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

The Arizona Board of Regents has filed motions to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Arizona Attorney General's Office over steep tuition increases at the three state universities.
