Dream On!


Can you do a story on the federal Dream Act? Because you know immigration is a big issue, and you need to get the word out that there are decent young people who are going to school to get their degrees, but in the end they can’t work because they don’t have legal status. More than half were brought here at a very young age, “by force” you could say, not because they wanted to come to the U.S. illegally. I’m an AB540 student [Assembly Bill 540 is the law allowing some “undocumented” California residents to pay in-state tuition] at SBCC and hopefully will be a registered nurse someday!
