First half of CA DREAM Act Passes State Senate

Last Thursday, the California legislature passed the first part of the California Dream Act, AB130, which would allow undocumented immigrant youth who qualify for in-state tuition to also be eligible for non-state funded scholarships such as institutional financial aid or private scholarships.

NY State Dropping the Ball on Health Exchanges

The New York State Senate recently failed to pass a health insurance exchange bill (“Dropping the Ball on Health Exchanges,” NY Times, July 11, 2011) that creates an exchange where small businesses and individuals in New York purchase quality, affordable, private insurance. Unlike the current marketplace, the exchange is consumer- friendly. Insurance companies are required to publicize information about their practices, including claims denials and costs to the consumer for out-of-network coverage.

Join Our Conversation: Welcome to the NYIC’s blog!

Today, we are extremely excited to share with you the New York Immigration Coalition’s brand new blog, a place we hope will be a hub for conversations and news around immigrant issues in New York and beyond! The NYIC has been sparking conversations—and making sure immigrant voices are included in public policy debates--for over two decades.
