Democrats will do anything to pander for Hispanic votes in 2012. Theyre even in favor of amnesty and cash handouts to illegal aliens, if thats what it takes. The latest scheme from California liberals is a move to force over-burdened taxpayers to foot the bill to put illegals through college.
On Thursday, the California Senate Appropriations Committee passed AB 131, which would allow undocumented pupils to sign up for public financial aid at state schools. At the same time, the Golden States dire fiscal straits have forced cutbacks in public-education spending for actual citizens.
This particular bill is one of two measures in the so-called California Dream Act, a package designed to call to mind the congressional Dream Act which grants citizenship for illegals who go to college.
Californias version makes illegal immigrants eligible for millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded Cal Grants and other forms of financial assistance. The only limit for applicants is that they must have attended state high schools for three years.
The same legislation has passed before, but former Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger terminated the measure. Current Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, however, has said that he would sign the bill.
State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly turned to the Web, appealing to his constituents to call the governors office and oppose the idea. The Twin Peaks Republican said in a video that the bill would take your taxpayer dollars and use them to create an incentive for more people to come to our country illegally because were going to pay for their college education. And that just doesnt make any sense.
The big spenders in the state Senate dont have a plan for getting any of the financial aid paid back. T

What a magnificent, generous gesture.
Demorat weasels are always happy when they’re spending other people’s money, but what are they to do when they’ve extinguished the supply?
I believe they have already!
They know that Perry loves the idea of giving illegal aliens college educations ~ but not Americans.
They probably imagine him sending stimulus funds to their state to help out with this enormous effort ('cause they got a whale of a lot of 'em).
Gov Brown closed state parks to help pay for this vote buy.
He is working on raising our taxes and fees to pay for this.
Political Pandering Ping!
CALIFORNIANS FOR A DEMOCRAT FREE CALIFORNIA.
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DEMOCRATS ON NOVEMBER 8 2000
“Free tuition for illegals [ California Assembly proves its not broke ]”
They’re broke alright, and totally out of their minds.
I would be puzzled at any student who couldn't "prove" that one. I wonder if the thousandth applicant with the name same from the same school wins a prize.
“They know that Perry loves the idea of giving illegal aliens college educations..”
Hang on, the PerryBots will be here in a second to explain why Perry granting benefits to illegal aliens for college in a great idea.
As long as citizens can vote with their feet against this, let the PRK dig its hole ever deeper.
But don’t allow the Feds to subsidize illegals nationwide with the DREAM act.
Don’t worry guys. The next election will have a ballot petition overturning this & it will pass. BTW the unions are running ads to scare people into signing petitions because your identity can be stolen.
A judge will overturn the voters...
I don't understand why they would do that, Gov. Perry has been sucking up to the illegals since damn near the stone age. It hasn't worked so far, the illegals here are all still socialist/donk supporters.
He isn't learning anything, the illegals are not learning anything and we are now up to our eyeballs in the grinning little bastards.
Like somehow, one could not predict that.
Why are the socialists buying more votes? They only need a lock on 51% to rule everything like they now do. Any pandering above that just advances the date of bankruptcy and their complete loss of power.
Milton Romney is going to use this issue to hurt Perry. And it’s going to work.
Republicans say conservatives can’t win by themselves, but at the same time, the GOP can’t win without us.
Perry needs to come out with a mea culpa and assure all of us he’s going to do his job if elected: enforce our laws.
CA can go to hell. (All except Fresno county, he added, hastily. Go dogs!)
Ca judges only get involved if the ACLU and CCLUs’ oxen are getting gored.
This isn't about Perry or Texas.
This is about California.
“This isn’t about Perry or Texas.”
Sorry about that, but for just a moment I forgot the PerryBot Mantra.
“California In-State Tuition and grants it Illegal Aliens is bad!”
“Rick Perry providing In-State Tuition and grants to Illegal Aliens in Texas is really great!”
It is lunacy. Why it is any better that Perry did that in Texas instead of CA? It makes no sense. In fact, it is much worse. He had a red legislature to work with... As Ann Coulter has said, it makes no sense that Perry wasn’t uber conservative in Texas since he had little to no opposition at all.
