Wow I really can't believe this happened in CA. There is hope. My niece lives there and I have been through all the college application stuff with her, so I am up on the subject.

Call me a snot here: I have been having a strong premonition that the pendulum even in California was going to start swinging against the illegals----------the news about in state tuition there is merely part of the first volley of shots being fought in the war against ilegal immigration

Ok snot.

Oh Azbear- I do hope that you are right! And as you always say the downturn in the economics is not going to help illegals and their apologists.

The pendulum done already swung back with Prop 187 - no one believed us back then. Since the illegal population in CA has likely doubled since then, and esp with the housing bubble fizzling out, it is getting too much to bear financially and something's got to give. I'm hoping that the bleeders don't get soft and start backtracking - we need to see this thing through.

Unbelievable. California still has a set of mountain oysters. I'm shocked.

My take on the matter as a student up to my eyeballs in student loans and debt is that if they're going to give free tuition to illegal aliens, then someone like me, the proverbial "older student" who has been paying into the tax system since I was a teenager, needs to be on that gravy train as well.

["Hi" DontH8Me! ]

Another Californian here! People outside of California have no idea just how many of "us" there are! Quite honestly, I don't know of anyone who agrees with illegals getting benefits, etc. People have been up in arms for years about the schools and the inadequate education because of illegals and lack of English. This really isn't anything new in terms of opinion -- it is new in terms of the law.

I was glad to read that, too! Thanks for sharing that!
