ALBANY, N.Y. (WHEC) — A bill that would use tax dollars to help undocumented immigrants in New York state pay for college has been put on hold because it contains language that would allow international students to apply for tuition.
According to the Times Union, the DREAM Act is worded to include foreign nationals going to college on temporary visas.
A spokesman for Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the governor hopes the issue will be resolved soon.
The DREAM Act passed the state senate and assembly in January. It is expected to cost $27 million a year.
