DREAM Act Illinois

ILLINOIS — The Illinois DREAM Act passed the state’s Senate by a margin of 45-11 Wednesday with wide bipartisan support. The act would establish a scholarship account to provide money for the education of students without legal status.

Huffington Post reports:

The state of Illinois doesn’t have the authority to grant citizenship. Instead, SB 2185 would create a “DREAM Fund, a scholarship account funded entirely by private dollars, to give out scholarships to students without legal status seeking higher education. It would also encourage counselors to receive training on education opportunities for undocumented students, and would open up college savings programs and prepaid tuition programs to all Illinois residents.

The bill will now head to the House where it awaits further voting.
