Congressman Joaquín Castro, along with a handful of state lawmakers, are pressing Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott on his plans for the Texas DREAM Act.
DREAM stands for: Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors. The Texas DREAM Act would allow students without documentation to pay in-state tuition.
At the start of Abbott's campaign for governor, he was asked if he supported the Texas DREAM Act. Abbott dodged the question at the time but later released a statement saying that he felt the law was structurally flawed and needed to be reformed.
