Lawmakers Approve Financial Aid to Illegals

I find it funny that there are citizens of this country that cannot recieve financial aid to help with college, but illegal immigrants can. I know people who have several children, dont make an excessive amount of money, but still are not eligible to get financial assistance for thier children’s tuition. Yet, in California, an illegal immigrant just has to ask and “help is on the way”. No wonder so many immigrants want to come here. They seem to have more rights and priveleges than legal citizens.

SACRAMENTO – Students who came to the country illegally could apply for state financial aid when they attend California colleges and universities under legislation approved Tuesday by the Assembly in a party-line vote.
Supporters said immigrant children who have graduated and completed at least three years of high school in California should not be penalized for their parents’ decision to bring them to the U.S. illegally.

β€œIt is one small measure to help these kids that are working their butts off to live the American dream,” said Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, D-South Gate.
The bill would build upon existing state law that allows the same group of students to qualify for in-state tuition at California public schools and community colleges based on high school attendance, rather than U.S. citizenship or state residency.
