If he signs the second bill, undocumented students attending public higher educational institutions who qualify for the exemption from non-resident tuition would be eligible to receive financial aid at the state's public colleges and universities.


Undocumented College Students Rally For Public Financial Aid: News: SFAppeal

Of course they didn't just want the deeply discounted college, the illegals expect to be given a free ride all the way. Why work? Why save money for your kids' educations? Just demand, demand, and demand.

And next thing you know, California will be demanding a federal bailout.

That's my biggest concern, Malamute.

California wants to spend recklessly so I sure hope the rest of the country doesn't end up having to take on their debt.

When we have no vote in their legislation that would seem like taxation without representation. I pity the poor people of Cali that don't want this crap.

I know that this is about California grants, but:

Man, these illegal immigrant students just don't get it and they are so selfish. They don't know about the rest of us that were actually born here that were in the same situation. Yet, they want to share with us the treasury and take from us? I really will march against any legislation that makes it OK for illegal immigrants to receive federal financial. I don't think they have a chance of ever receiving federal financial aid. There would be a lot of backlash.

"Sign this bill as if your own children needed it," she said, urging Brown to take action. "Undocumented students are under attack and California can be the beacon of hope."
Seriously? Are they that blind? "Sign this bill as if your own children needed it?" They are saying that? No, they should be saying, "Sign this bill if you want votes." Why would anyone who has children going to school in the United States want to give illegal immigrants a chance to share educational grants and loans with their children? Sorry, but emotions in this case won't override survival instincts and common sense. Also, the children of the people she is talking to probably won't even be eligible to receive financial aid because their parents make too much annual income.

Another thing is this: how many of those students or their parents have contributed enough to the U.S. to even demand payment for school? I bet that some of these kids haven't worked in the U.S. a day in their life.

Also, if I am from another state, can I move to California, apply for school there, get accepted and apply for in-state tuition and the California grants?

I bet I couldn't, but an illegal immigrant can. Does anyone else see something wrong with this for a U.S. citizen?

That is disgusting. Why should it be more beneficial to be an illegal than a citizen or legal immigrant?

Absolutely! Another thing is since after graduation they cannot work lawfully in this country because of their illegal status why in the world should their higher education be supplemented by the U.S. taxpayer?

And undocumented income that parents who have at best only stolen social security numbers and so would not have to report will guarantee that the illegals grab up all the financial aid. Americans will be at a very distinct disadvantage. Also many of the illegal parents send hundreds of dollars out of the country every month so are not putting it away for their kids' college.
