(Reuters) - California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law on Monday a bill allowing illegal immigrants to receive privately funded scholarships to attend the state's public colleges and universities.
The bill, dubbed the California Dream Act, passed the state Legislature earlier this month and aims at helping illegal immigrants who have earned a high school diploma after attending at least three years of high school in the state.
"At the end of the day, if we're going to continue as a powerful, equal-opportunity society, we're going to have to invest in our people," Brown, a Democrat, said at the signing ceremony in the library of a Los Angeles community college.
The state law is named after a national bill introduced in Congress last year to give young, undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States for at least five years a path to citizenship through college or military service.

1. These kids are still illegal.
2. I’m sure that the men have not signed up for selective service.

“”At the end of the day, if we’re going to continue as a powerful, equal-opportunity society, we’re going to have to invest in our people,” Brown, a Democrat, said at the signing ceremony in the library of a Los Angeles community college. “
LoL except their NOT your people, their not even your Federation partners people. Their foreigners that have no allegiance to your state or this federation.
It’s ok in my book thou, clearly Califorina is overflowing with surplus Tax payer dollars to invest in foreign nationals.
Do you hear that sound? It's the Founding Fathers doing about 2500 RPM in their graves.
Sadly, that could be true.
simple solution, private scholarships which do not screen for legal status do not have their student loans protected in bankruptcy.
legal or illegal can then get out of those loans.
