You a fan of these proposed bills, or not?

A U.S. congressman has introduced two bills that would make it easier for illegal immigrant students to attend college.

Rep. Marc Veasey (D-TX) introduced the American Dream Promise Act and the Fairness in Financial Aid Act on June 16, just three days after Veasey submitted a resolution “honoring the bravery of undocumented immigrants.”

“ITINs are for federal tax reporting only, and are not intended to serve any other purpose.”   

The American Dream Promise Act would prohibit universities from discriminating against applicants based on immigration status, forbidding them from turning down a student “on the basis of the student’s immigration or naturalization status.”
