Our U.S. born students can thank the generous California Legislature, with it's California Dream Act for contributing to the overcrowding.

The California Dream Act allows illegal immigrant students to attend all California community, state, and university colleges and pay discounted resident fees. Further, these students are given financial aid through various (illegal) immigrant rights groups to pay for books, etc.

Now our California colleges say they don't get enough in fees to fund enough classes and provide a quality college education to our U.S. born students.

These same illegal immigrant rights advocates are trying to get a Dream Act law passed in the U.S. Congress and Senate to make it a Federal Law. On the Federal Level, every college in the entire nation will be required to give discounted resident rates to all illegal immigrant students. However, every college will still be able to charge non-resident fees to U.S. students attending from other states.

Foreign students with student visas will still have to pay additional fees totalling thousands of dollars each semester.

Let's put our U.S. BORN STUDENTS first for a change. Remember this in November.

I completely agree. What has our country come to?
