Undocumented college students from Chicago public universities want an amendment to legislation that would make them eligible for state financial aid. The students rallied in downtown Chicago in the Federal Plaza where they shared how the bill, if passed, would impact their lives. If House Bill 3528 is approved, Illinois will join five other states in granting financial aid to undocumented students.
