California Dream Act continues as petitioners fall short

Many immigrants living in California want to become U.S. citizens. However, the path to citizenship can be long and treacherous. Fortunately California has laws to help those who are not yet citizens succeed. Last year, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the California Dream Act into law. The act allows illegal immigrants to be considered for state financial aid toward community colleges and universities across the state. However, the California Dream Act was not backed by all.

Brown signs California Dream Act

While many immigration issues still have a way to go in California, many undocumented students may be getting some good news soon. Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed into law new legislation that would allow some 41,000 undocumented students financial access to many college programs, including Cal Grants, UC grants and other state-funded scholarships. The bill is known as AB131, and it is the second half of the California Dream Act. While it is not a green card, it will provide a boost to many undocumented students.
