Fed Govt's Nightmare is New York's Dream

A version of the federal government's controversial Dream Act was introduced (SB 4179) on Tuesday into the New York Senate by Democrat Bill Perkins.
The bill provide illegal aliens who entered the country before the age of 16, and have demonstrated a commitment to education public service and strong morals, to have access to financial aid, employment opportunities and health insurance coverage.
There are currently no co-sponsors for this bill, which was very controversial in the federal government and is unlikely to gain any traction in the Republican controlled Senate. No previous version of this proposal exists in the state legislature during the last two year. This proposal is now in the Senate Finance Committee.
