This violates USC 1324 which makes it a federal crime to merely encourage illegals to live here. Enforce the law.

Encouraging illegals is as bad as encouraging child molesters or terrorists. Enforce the law.

"The number of students receiving campus grants under the Dream Act is so small that the effect on resident students is negligible, said Rhonda Johnson, CSU East Bay's financial aid director. "It would be really hard for a student to argue that 'I would have gotten it had you not given it to those Dream Act students,'" she said.

Lying sack of shot!!! WHAT IS NOT EVEN MENTIONED IN THIS ARTICLE IS THE FACT THAT CITIZEN LEGAL STUDENTS' AWARD AMOUNTS ARE BEING DECREASED(!!!!!) IN ORDER TO ACCOMMODATE ILLEGAL ALIENS!!!!!

That's right tax paying folks in Callie, your child's Cal Grant award amount has been reduced so that illegal aliens can go to college!!!! Nevermind that you have already paid for 12 years of education with free lunch/breakfast/snack, med, social services!!!

How facked up is this?!!!!

You are right mag,but it's happening all over too.
They come into our Universities with no clue what is going on and for some reason are given a pass when they speak/read little if any English at all. The average legal citizen studies til 2,3 and sometime 4 in the morning in order to pass the exam and to see illegals (like I said) who don't understand the subject getting a passing grade. Something serious is going on here.
Most college students are too busy studying and working at the same time to figure out that they are cheated out of money for next semester , next years tuition.

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.

Berekely's own student newspaper admitted this as such:

It's also interseting 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.

If California continues to perpetuate breaking the Laws that our founders created, this Country will continue to be downgraded to a third world shit hole. It's insulting to all of us that have obeyed our laws and lived within the perimeters of normal, clean, law abiding Americans, to have Lib's decide our future and the futures of out children, that it's okay to break the law, steal other peoples ID's, and belongings, never learn our recognized National language and give legal Americans the finger when they are granted right's. This changes the very fabric of the way this Country was developed and why we are civilized and have enjoyed an advanced Society. And now watch it become depleted by thugs and crooks. Sad scenerio for Legal Americans.

It is very interesting that this and another venue (San Leandro Topix) are the only ones out of the myriad of PR outlets where you are allowed to comment and tell the truth. I guess the powers that be ARE afraid of the TRUTH and the thought Police are alive and kicking. Note: The original story came from the Oakland Tribune.

its not just the libs in ca who are attacking the citizens,look at all who are against deporting and giving cheaper college rates and drivers license. it comes down to if they are not against illegal aliens they are against the citizens there is no inbetween

If the tax payers of California stand by and take on this debt, so be it. Debt will crush the state before long and they will be filing for bankruptcy.
