New York State Dream Act (S.4179)

It was about time New York stood up for the undocumented youth population. Last week, a new version of the Dream Act was introduced in the State of New York named New York State Dream Act (S.4179). This new bill is a similar version of the Dream Act, giving the undocumented youth population access to state resources such as being able to get a drivers license, health insurance, work authorization and access to state financial aid. Just like the Dream Act this bill has a few requirements: to be a New York State resident for more than two years, to have arrived to the United States before the age of 16 and to be under the age of 35, have good moral characters and to have a high school diploma or GED. The biggest difference between the Dream Act and New York State Dream Act is that New York State Dream Act will not lead to getting legal status in the United States. The bill is now being introduced to New York’s state senators and representatives, and hopefully will be going on its path to becoming a law. The bill was introduce by senator Bill Perkins (District 30) and is strongly supported by the New York State Youth Leadership Council (NYSYLC).
