California to launch college for ‘illegal’ immigrants

Last year, Georgia lawmakers mulled over a bill that would have barred undocumented immigrants from attending college. A group of college professors then banded together to offer those students an education. Now a similar effort to Freedom University, as it was called, is going national, reports Associated Press.

A project called National Dream University, mirrored after the Georgia effort, is being formed in California. It’s a collaboration between the University of California, the Los Angeles Center for Labor Research and Education and the National Labor College. It aims to offer online courses for college credit to young immigrant and labour rights activists who want to attend college.
