Virginia lawmakers to consider version of Dream Act

State Sen. Dick Saslaw (D-Alexandria) says educating the children of undocumented workers is good for Virginia’s economy.

“The people that you got here, you’ve got to make them as productive as possible,” he says.

The bill is similar to a provision approved by Maryland voters in November to allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition.

The bill could face opposition from Republicans who control the Virginia House of Delegates.
