Walsh: Dream Act a Nightmare for New York Taxpayers

A Statement from Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R, C, I-Ballston) on the passage of the DREAM Act.

“While Assembly Majority called the passage of the DREAM Act a success, this is a nightmare for the citizens of New York,” said Walsh. “We are giving illegal immigrants access to taxpayer-funded tuition assistance, when the average student loan debt for our students is $39,400. It’s impractical and irresponsible. Moving forward, I hope to remain committed to fighting against these misplaced priorities.”
