Post Governor Jerry Brown signs the California DREAM Act - October 9th 2011, 03:10 AM

California Governor Jerry Brown signed the second half of the California DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education of Alien Minors) Act that allows illegal student immigrants to apply for state aid for college. Illegal student immigrants that have graduated from a California high school and can prove they're on the path to being a legalized resident, can pay in state tuition fees. The California DREAM Act now allows these students to apply for state aid.

Thoughts? Opinions?

(And yes, FOX was the only news source I could find so far.)


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

Why not? If they can pull their weight and show others that they can contribute then it's fine. If they're gonna leach then it's not.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

Why not? If they've proven they're on track to becoming a good, legal citizen, even if they didn't get there legally, I don't think that's an issue. It's actually good for the economy.

Sounds like a fair deal to me, so long as they don't receive preferential aid or admissions based on ethnicity or background. And I'm not a Democrat.

You can find my kind living right on the fault line, eyes on the seaside, lives on the B-side, kites on the power lines.
