NYS passes bill to create state DREAM Act to provide college tuition assistance to undocumented immigrants

ALBANY — New York college students whose parents are undocumented immigrants will soon be eligible to receive state financial aid.

After years of seeing efforts to create a state Dream Act blocked by Republicans who controlled the Senate until January, the new Democrat-controlled chamber passed the legislation on Wednesday.

The Assembly passed it a few hours later.

Gov. Cuomo said he will sign the bill, which was named after the late Sen. Jose Peralta, a Queens Democrat who pushed the Dream Act.
