Are David Choi and the other young woman attending UCLA on scholarships or are they paying out of state fees as Americans from states outside of California do now? Does the Pasadena Star News understand how many American Citizens are denied admission and opt for illegal residents. This is so wrong on many levels. David Choi lives in South Pasadena ...a high end community whose parents are probably well off, where is the fairness in all this? Is this supposed to be a 'feel good story"? Sorry, you missed the mark.

I have a son attending UCLA Law School whose $40K/year tuition will leave him with a substantial loan to be repaid. Is this fair? The question on the sign in the article that read "I'm not an 'illegal ...I am a dreamer" should be rightfully answered ...you are illegal and we are the dreamers if we think we could get this help in your country.

Yes, the DREAM ACT is extremely discriminatory against Americans especially those in other states! When are Americans going to get help instead of illegal foreign nationals?

Never unless we demand it. That Race/discrimination Card works both ways. If a qualified Naturalized Citizen is bypassed or refused in state tuition to accommodate a Dreamer if that should happen, the ground work is being laid for complaints with the EEOC to investigate discrimination based on National Origin. It will actually give the Federal Courts plenty to consider as mass claims ( that have validity ) are filed. Semper Fi !

That is already happening in CA. with their own version of the DREAM ACT. Too bad the 9th circuit appeals court read it so narrowly that they kept the law as is - discriminatory!

"If the Dream Act doesn't pass I'll still work to become a lawyer, but it would be a lot harder," she said.
These kids don't get it. If the DREAM act doesn't pass, it's a bellwether sign that they are either going to have to pack up and leave or we are going to show them the door.

The time for mollycoddling is over. Settle your affairs here and head for home, if you know what's good for you.

Yep, they believe the lies from the Democrats and don't believe the truth that the DREAM ACT is dead.
