With the federal Dream Act in limbo for over 20 years now, states have stepped up with their own solutions to help Dreamers, the population of young immigrants brought to the United States as children. Political activist Tyler Montague and ACE’s Derrick Anderson visit the podcast to talk about Arizona’s newly passed Proposition 308, which gives in-state tuition for non-citizen residents of the state. The hosts also break down recent higher education policy developments, including government funding, the Biden student loan forgiveness plan, a new report on college financial aid award letters, and more.
