In Washington and in Sacramento, so-called Dream Acts are designed to help high-school graduates who were brought to the US at an early age and whose lack of documentation stops them in their tracks, even though they may have succeeded in school. There has not been progress in Washington but, yesterday in Sacramento, Governor Brown signed a bill he said would promote "a more inclusive California and a more educated California." But there's a catch. This Dream Act only gives easier access to privately funded educational aid. State Senator Gil Cedillo, Democrat of Los Angeles, is the author.
