Bill would financially aid illegal immigrant students

Ignoring the governor’s veto of last year, a legislator has again introduced the California Dream Act, which would provide state financial aid for students who enter into the U.S. illegally.

Authored by state Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, the bill would give foreign students access to the state’s Cal Grant program, scholarship programs they are not currently eligible for, and aid from individual schools.

The students would still be ineligible for federal loans, which are the main source of college financing for most students.

“There have been so many studies showing the benefit of an educated work force that many minds have been changed,” says Cedillo. “Plus the governor is no longer in an election year, so he does not have to appear to be as tough on immigration.”
