I received an email from one Chadwick who is upset with the California legislature and I would agree things are nuts on the left coast. Here is what Chadwick writes:
Get this one... A controversial bill that would allow illegal immigrants to get state financial aid while attending Californians [sic] public colleges and universities is now in the hands of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has until the end of this month to sign or veto.
State financial aid for illegal immigrants. What does that mean? Let me answer that for you. It means that the state is paying people to be criminals. When a person sneaks into the country without being properly admitted that person is committing a crime. When you commit a crime you are a criminal.
If a person aids a person knowing that person is a criminal, there is a word for that, too. It's called an accessory. If you commit a crime and then come to me and ask for money so that you can leave the state and escape the law...I become a criminal, too. However, when foreigners commit a crime by coming here illegally and they ask for money from the state, it's called financial aid. That doesn't make sense to me.
Why not give money to car thieves, too? How about this...get pulled over for a DWI and the state writes you a check for a thousand bucks? Sound good to you? It makes about as much
sense as this illegal immigration law.
And it's not like the hippies in California are tuning their backs on the poor indigents streaming clandestinely over the boarder like cockroaches.
The governor has supported an existing state law, passed in 2002, which now allows undocumented students in California to pay in-state tuition rates in public colleges and universities. Tuition for non-California residents is about 10 times higher. Now, I don't know exactly where Tijuana is, but I know it's not IN the state of California.
Hell, let's go all the way and just give California back to Mexico. I think they deserve each other.
