Yes he is, a legal one.

It isn’t his stance on immigration or illegal immigration that has changed. It’s his longstanding denial that illegal aliens were contributing to the budget deficit in California.

MANY , many legal migrants are opposed to ILLEGAL aliens. I fail to see how that can be regarded as hypocrotical in the least. Being against illegals isn't being anti-immigration.

How is being anti-illegal = to being anti-immigrant?
I am about as anti-illegal as you can get but I am also a strong supporter of legal immigration.
Thats like saying I am anti-car owners because I don't like car thieves.

I'm just telling you what pretty much every Mexican has told me. Nobody likes him there.

"The Governator Changes Tune - Illegal Aliens a Drain on California"

Schwarzenegger has finally realized that he can't keep ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room.

In order to get elected, he toned down is stance against illegal immigration. Now that he's on the way out, he has taken the gloves off. The bottom line is that he was no better than Davis. Predictable since he was not qualified to hold the office to begin with. Just a former steroid using bodybuilder and actor.

Shame on the people of this state for allowing this grunt into office. He has been ineffective.

wow, it took him awhile but at least hes finally doing something about it. Itd be nice if every governor of every state opened their eyes a lil more and double checked their budget to cut the "loose ends". I keep hearing you guys dont have a big illegals problem and then that you do. Anyone got a general idea on how many ARE THOUGHT to be in Cali? and how much is going out to support them?

Sling is right. Legal or Illegal immigrants...neither ever liked him.

I for one, did not vote for him either time. I voted for Cruz Bustamante but many were afraid that he would raise our car insurances. Bustamante in my opinion had more experience than Arnold and had been working at the Capitol for some time.
