Buried in the Senate immigration reform bill is the DREAM Act, which has been introduced and reintroduced in Congress over the last five or more years. This bill would make it possible for undocumented students to pay resident fees (if they qualify as residents) at public colleges and universities. This is especially important because undocumented students are currently not eligible for federal student loan programs.
