According to an Article on the Communist Party USA News, People's World, this happened on Wednesday:
"CHICAGO - The immigrant rights movement got a double boost here this week after state lawmakers approved a bipartisan measure that would aid undocumented youth in attending college. Also, Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn officially withdrew from the controversial "Secure Communities" federal immigration program.On Wednesday, May 4, the Illinois Senate passed the Illinois DREAM Act with a strong bipartisan 45-11 vote. The bill, SB 2185, would establish a state "Dream" commission to administer privately funded scholarships to as many as 95,000 students of immigrant parents.The measure aims to amend current law so that Illinois residents, and not just citizens may access the state's college savings program. It would also require high school counselors to get trained on dealing with the challenges and hurdles that undocumented youth face in accessing higher education opportunities.Further, the law would allow undocumented youth aged 18 to 29 with taxpayer identification cards to invest in the state's Bright Start and College Illinois programs. Supporters note no taxpayer dollars would be used."No Taxpayer money will be used... pfft...right.. I'll believe it when I see it. So who is going to train the High School Counselors if not the state? Possibly SEIU???The Bill goes on to the House in the next several weeks and if it passes will most likely become law since the Governor supports the bill.
The Governor also opted out of the "Secure Communities" Federal Deportation Program that targeted criminals and terrorists.
So I wonder how long it will take the Obama Administration to step in and sue the State of Illinois for NOT Enforcing Federal Immigration law?
Ok...Ok.. Stop Laughing.. When Hell freezes over huh?
