No Need for Borders - Best Picks for Undocumented Students

As a voting citizen of California, The Dream Act (AB 131) is a hot button issue causing much stir. We are currently in college application season. As millions of high school seniors determine their college choices, thousands of undocumented students also ponder what schools will provide them the best support possible. Technically, AB 131 was supposed to be finalized last Friday (September 30, 2011). So far (at least to my knowledge), no official word if Gov. Jerry Brown has signed or vetoed. Until then, here’s a list of colleges that give undocumented students an opportunity at higher education.
