Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the California DREAM Act Tuesday night for the second time in two years, once again shutting out undocumented students from state financial aid.

The act would have granted undocumented students access to financial aid administered by the UC system, the CSU system and the state's community colleges, including grant, scholarship, work-study and loan programs.

In his veto message on Tuesday, the governor wrote that it was not appropriate to pass the bill given the condition of the state's economy.

Good for schwarzenenegger! As hard as it may be for some to realize, the US does not have access to the mythical river of money. There isn't enough for citizens, let alone people who are here illegally!

Has anybody noticed in just the last 3-4 months that the tide in California is starting to turn against the illegals?

Admittedly; the crumpling economy there is probably the catalyst but still...........
