California passes its 'Dream Act'

A few days ago, California's legislature passed their own Dream Act, which would allow undocumented students to apply for privately funded scholarships to the state's public colleges and universities.

Although the stipulations of the bill will not provide a direct pathway to citizenship for California's illegal youth, it contributes to the overall discussion of whether or not illegal youth should be entitled to the same rights that citizens of the United States participate in.
