California Dream Act passed

July 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 130, the bill that allows undocumented immigrant students attending California state colleges or universities to apply for scholarships funded by private donors. Three previous attempts at similar bills failed or were vetoed. A companion bill remains stuck in the Senate. That bill would allow illegal immigrants to apply for state loans and grants. Brown’s decision is sure to stir strong reaction. Opponents argue that AB130 rewards and encourages illegal immigration, while supporters say it allows those students who had no say in how they were brought to the U.S. access to a college degree. Brown signed the bill during a stop at the Los Angeles City College Library. (LA Times)
