Pennsylvania undocumented youth and supporters speak at Press Conference on Pennsylvania Dream Act

More than 40 undocumented youth and supporters came out to Harrisburg  today to attend a Press Conference on the Pennsylvania Dream Act organized by PICC in collaboration with Senator Lloyd Smucker.  The Pennsylvania Dream Act was introduced on March 18th and would  provide undocumented students who have graduated from high school in Pennsylvania, or have a GED certificate, the opportunity to access affordable college education through in-state tuition rates.

State Senator Lloyd Smucker to Introduce PA DREAM Act!

PICC is happy to announce that State Senator Lloyd Smucker (R- West Lampeter) yesterday announced his intention to introduce an in-state tuition bill for undocumented youth in Pennsylvania. Under current policy, many talented and committed young students who have lived in Pennsylvania for years do not qualify for the lower in-state tuition rate and therefore cannot afford to go to college.
