Tom Moore, online Sentinel Editor, told me that the Oakland Tribune blocked comments (?????). So, here is my comment that I already had posted but now cannot be seen (article at: http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/education/ci... ):

UM, giving free aid to Illegal Alien Students DOES affect aid given to CA residential students. This is all too often denied when it is a fact that while the NUMBER of Cal Grants given to CA Residential Students does not change, the AMOUNT of the award has and will be diminished.

Berkely's own student newspaper admitted this as such:

It's also interesting to note that Cesar Chavez (The Center where the pics were taken) was adamantly opposed to Illegal Aliens because they hindered his work for justice for Farm Workers.

When are we going to learn these lessons? The immigration item should never have been an item at all had politicians not used it as platform to earn a few cheap political points. What are the true benefits that come from this immigration squabbling and discrimination? If there were any, politicians are the only beneficiaries.

I speak from an experienced point of view. I have lived in several countries across the globe. After all my ordeals, illicit trades, I am neither in support nor against immigration. I would however opine that societies make their immigration laws based on whether or not it is beneficial to them.

My book,‘Evicted from My Space’,(at leading online bookstores) to me, should be a paraphernalia to governments and individuals who want to delve into the secret places of an immigrant.

Spineless Californians get exactly what they deserve!! A bunch of illegal freeloaders sucking them dry. Round them up with their illegal families and send them packing back to where they came from. DEPORT!
