    Brown signs California Dream Act

    Following through on a campaign promise, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law Monday easing access to privately funded financial aid for undocumented college students. He also signaled that he was likely to back a more controversial measure allowing those students to seek state-funded tuition aid in the future.

    Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles), author of the private financial aid measure, described it as an important but incremental step toward expanding opportunities for deserving students who were brought to the U.S. illegally through no choice of their own. Cedillo is pressing ahead with a more expansive measure that would make certain undocumented students eligible for the state's Cal Grants and other forms of state tuition aid.

    California, going broke, but who cares? Let's throw money at illegals!



    I vote we quit sending Cali Federal money.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This bill does impact the California budget at all.

    easing access to privately funded financial aid
    Unless there is a shortage of space at their state schools this might bring in more money for the state.

    I vote we make it a crime for politicians to aid illegals.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I have no problem with illegal immigrants who have lived here since childhood attending college with financial aid provided through private funds. If they simultaneously enroll in a mandatory program which will lead them to citizenship, I also have no problem with them receiving public funds, however I feel their need should be put after the needs of legalized citizens and students on legal student visa programs.
