DREAM Act

California Bill to Give Obama's DREAMer Illegal Aliens Unemployment Benefits

Legislation introduced Tuesday would give about 400,000 undocumented immigrants in California the same rights as citizens to unemployment benefits and various other government services. Assembly Bill 35 targets a select group of undocumented immigrants, participants in President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, who came to the United States as youths and have lived generally productive lives for numerous years.
