Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey signed into law last week a bill allowing undocumented college students to pay in-state tuition rates.  New Jersey is the 17th state to pass legislation resembling the national Dream Act that has faltered at the national level. Fourteen states provide these provisions through state legislation—California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington.  Two states—Oklahoma and Rhode Island— allow in-state tuition rates to undocumented students through Board of Regents decisions.
