RI State Rep. Grace Diaz Introduces RI’s version of the Federal Dream Act.

Providence, RI
April 30, 2009

Tonight at Providence’s Trinity Church, the same church where Rep. Gutierrez launched its Comprehensive Immigration Reform tour earlier this year, a state lawmaker is introducing its own version of the Federal Dream Act at the state level.

RI’s state bill is HR 5353(Not called Dream Act at the local level) which will generate state revenue, provide an educated workforce for the local economy, and bring more in-state tuition to RI colleges and universities. Approximately 160 undocumented students graduate every year from RI high schools all across the state, according to Brown’s Immigrant Rights Coalition. The majority of them are unable to attend college because they cannot afford today’s hefty charge for out-of-state tuition and do not qualify for any type of financial aid. Rep. Diaz recognizes the struggle and wasted potential these bright youth represent to the present and future local economy, thus she is reintroducing for the fifth consecutive time legislation to aid this segment of the American student population.
