Will state DREAM act come true for New York immigrants?

The New York DREAM Act would make it easier for undocumented immigrants to pay for higher education by giving them access to state aid programs.

"I'm not illegal; I'm undocumented," says Yelky Ramos, a 20-year-old immigrant on the front lines of the DREAM Act debate.

Activists had pushed hard last month in an effort to get the bill included in the 2013 budget. That push fell short, but supporters of the state DREAM Act are still fighting for its passage.

We take an in-depth look at how the debate is unfolding.
