Illinois passes the "Dream Act " - What's the "Dream Act" you ask ....

Democratic Illinois Governor Pat Quinn this week signed into law a measure that allows illegal immigrants to compete for private scholarships to attend state colleges - that is the "Dream Act".

The Illinois Dream Act is very similar to law passed in California recently. In Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a Democrat recently signed a law allowing in-state tuition to illegal immigrants last month.

A total of 13 states including California, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin have passed laws since 2001 to allow in-state tuition for young illegal immigrants who graduated from state high schools.
