Commending the Passage of the California Dream Act
I'm very pleased that the California Dream Act (AB 131) has become law. Like their peers, undocumented immigrant students are admitted to UCLA on the basis of their academic credentials. They are highly competitive and highly motivated students on a path to become doctors, engineers, teachers and musicians and to contribute to society and the state's economic vitality. They deserve the same opportunities, financial and otherwise, to reach their greatest potential.
