    California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the state's Dream Act into law Saturday, clearing the way for illegal immigrants to receive state financial aid to attend California universities and community colleges.

    The law gives illegal immigrants in California more education benefits than in any other state.

    According to a statement from the governor's office, Brown said he signed the California Dream Act because it makes sense to allow high-achieving students access to college financial aid, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    "Going to college is a dream that promises intellectual excitement and creative thinking," Brown, a Democrat, said in a statement. "The Dream Act benefits us all by giving top students a chance to improve their lives and the lives of all of us."

    Under the law, illegals who are accepted into state universities can receive, beginning in in 2013, Cal-Grant assistance, which last year provided grants averaging $4,500 apiece to more than 370,000 low-income students, according to the Times.
