"Now that Governor Gavin Newsom has signed AB 1645 into law, California Community Colleges are required to expand resources for undocumented immigrant students. However, there is one major problem with this law: the lack of funding to implement...Earlier this year California Community Colleges reported that only 35 of the system’s 115 community colleges have Dream Resource Centers. The existing centers are supported by a combination of the colleges’ own funding as well as external dollars."
