    Stand With Arizona ^ | 04-26-2013 | John Hill
    Way to go, Peach State! Gov. Nathan Deal yesterday signed S.B. 160 - a tough expansion of Georgia's H.B. 87, the Arizona-style law cracking down on illegal aliens, which passed in 2011. The La Raza lobby was left stunned and upset, believing Deal would bend to the prevailing GOP pressure for immigration appeasement in Washington, and veto it. They were sadly mistaken. Passed in the final hours of the General Assembly’s 40-day session - and despite fierce lobbying against it by ethnic intimidation groups, big business interests, and the ACLU - Senate Bill 160 was created to "fix" problems in licensing...

  • Schwarzenegger vetoes California Dream Act

    CA Governor's web site ^ | September 30, 2006 | Arnold Schwarzenegger
    To the Members of the California State Senate: I am returning Senate Bill 160 without my signature. I applaud all young people who work hard, graduate high school and attend college. Current law allows undocumented students who have attended a California high school for three years and graduate from a California high school to attend a state college and get a reduced “in state tuition rate” but not be eligible for public financial aid dollars. California has over 100,000 students here legally who apply annually for financial aid to attend college, and our state has limited funds available for this...

    Schwarzenegger will have final say on bill greenlighting state aid for illegal immigrants. Legislation that would make illegal immigrants eligible for financial aid at California public colleges is waiting a decision by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The bill — named the California D.R.E.A.M. Act — extends more rights to undocumented students, which legislators estimate numbered almost 600 across the UC system last year. Currently, those students are allowed to obtain in-state residency status if they meet certain criteria, including attendance at a California high school for at least three years. However, undocumented students are not currently allowed to compete for state...

    A controversial bill that would allow illegal immigrants to get state financial aid while attending California's public colleges and universities is now in the hands of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has until the end of this month to sign or veto. The bill's author, state Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles, called on the governor Wednesday to ``invest in California's future'' by signing SB 160, also called the California DREAM Act, into law. Opponents say the state should not give money to lawbreakers. While Schwarzenegger has not taken a position on the bill, he has previously shown some inclination to extend...

    Students who came to the country illegally could apply for state financial aid when they attend California colleges and universities under legislation approved Tuesday by the Assembly in a party-line vote. Supporters said immigrant children who have graduated and completed at least three years of high school in California should not be penalized for their parents' decision to bring them to the U.S. illegally. "It is one small measure to help these kids that are working their butts off to live the American dream," said Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, D-South Gate. The bill would build upon existing state law...

    SAN FRANCISCO – When he started high school, Matias Bernal's English was so limited he stumbled over the words for numbers and colors. Four years later, he was on the wait list at Princeton. Bernal is an illegal immigrant from Mexico City. Without access to financial aid, grants and most scholarships, he had to push aside the Ivy League brochures and prepare to attend California State University Fresno, where he can live with family and pay tuition with money from jobs he is not supposed to have. “I was crushed,” he said. About 65,000 illegal immigrants graduate from U.S. high...
  • CA: Rescinding In-state Tuition for Illegal Immigrants - SB 349

    My Note: The following was posted on the Tom McClintock's website on June 19, 2006. SB 349 was blocked by Democrats the same day as the quoted speech (April 2005), never making it out of the Senate Education Committee (there were only 3 Republicans on the Committee, out of 12). Senator McClintock authored SB 349, which would rescind the in-state tuition subsidy for illegal immigrants attending state universities and community colleges that was granted by AB 540 in 2001. However, a bill by Senator Gil Cedillo, SB 160, would allow illegal immigrant students to receive state sponsored financial aid in...

    SACRAMENTO - Even as the national debate rages over illegal immigration, California legislators are weighing bills that take aim at the issue on fronts ranging from such public benefits as driver's licenses and in-state tuition rates to better investigation of the citizenship status of state prison inmates. Many of the bills are authored by Republican legislators looking to reduce public benefits to undocumented immigrants and investigate what they cost the state in resources and infrastructure. One bill would eliminate in-state discounted tuition rates for undocumented immigrants to attend community colleges and the California State University system. Another would allow the...

    Democrats in the state legislature have had a busy year so far. They have tried to keep the punishment for a person possessing 24 items of child pornography from qualifying as a felony, they have produced legislation to put a moratorium on the death penalty, and "One Bill Gil" re-introduced his pet bill to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. Senator Cedillo must have decided it was time to go for a new nickname, because today his legislation to give Cal Grants to illegal immigrants, SB 160, passed in the Senate 23-12. Senator Cedillo's bill allows for illegal immigrants attending...
