On Monday, Illinois became the second state in the past week to implement a DREAM Act, which aims to provide financial assistance to undocumented college students.
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed the Illinois DREAM Act into law Monday. The bill creates a scholarship fund, which will offer private grants to undocumented students. A nine-member commission will be established to oversee the fund.
Last week, California Governor Jerry Brown signed the California DREAM Act.
