    SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois House passed a state version of the DREAM Act Thursday in a vote hailed by immigration-rights advocates as historic.

    By a 61-53 vote, the House approved and sent to Gov. Pat Quinn legislation that would set up a state fund that would route privately funded college scholarships to as many as 95,000 children of undocumented immigrants.

    Quinn has expressed support for the legislation, whose chief House sponsor was Rep. Edward Acevedo (D-Chicago).

    The measure, also pushed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cardinal Francis George, would allow undocumented immigrants ages 18 to 29 with taxpayer-identification cards to invest in the state’s Bright Start and College Illinois programs.

    “I’m super excited this bill got passed. Illinois is going on a different path,” said Rep. Maria Antonia Berrios (D-Chicago), co-chair of the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus.

    Who are they trying to kid. Money that would feed REAL Americans will be diverted to give diplomas to criminal aliens.

    American college students who earned college degrees and paid big money should ask for a refund.

    BTW Governor Quinn gave LA RAZA 3.4 million dollars last year. That WAS taxpayer money.

    Different path, all right.

    BTW - it's a private scholarship fund, not publicly funded.
