A controversial scholarship which benefited Arizona State University students who are in the country illegally has quietly faded away.

As many as 200 students who graduated from Arizona high schools received the private scholarship money through the university this year.

But now the money is spent, and ASU is advising students who depended on it to "seek private funding sources."

Sounds like a 'back door' way of telling illegals no more goodies for them

About time I say and good for AZ. I hope the illegals finally get the idea that we do not want them here.

Wow, the hammer is dropping. However this is still small scale compared to the illegal populations of Texas and California.

I agree, but it'll never happen. I do believe that Ahnold would like to do something about it but the latino presence is too strong and it's going to take someone stronger than the govenator to put their foot down. Especially, since there are a lot of legal immigrants here who would vote him out of office if he even thinks about it. Remember, CA is majority Latino. You're right though, I'm really respecting the government of AZ for protecting its citizens.

Like what the Federal government did two generations ago overriding 'states rights' pertaining to the old Jim Crow laws--------California may be forced to close/lock the door towards illegals and their enablers.

Yes; the US government is 'pro illegal immigrant', just that things are changing faster and faster in the other direction

Arizona is really getting its stuff together. Just wish that more Southern States would follow.
