Posted on 10/08/2011 12:42:30 PM PDT by montag813
The lawmaker who authored the California Dream Act said Saturday that Gov. Jerry Brown has signed the bill allowing Illegal immigrants attending California universities to receive state financial aid.
Brown's office declined comment, and an announcement on the legislation has not yet been made.
But Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles) said he was notified Saturday morning by the governor's aides that Brown has approved the measure, which makes illegal immigrants who are accepted into state universities eligible, starting in 2013, for Cal-Grant assistance.
The governors action also allows those without citizenship papers to tap into institutional grants while attending the University of California and California State University systems, and to get fee waivers in the California community college system.
Cedillo praised Brown as an "incredible leader with the vision and courage'' for signing the bill despite its great controversy.

Breaking: Gil Cedilo, the lawmaker who authored the "California Dream Act" - the $40 million tuition grant and financial aid bill for illegal aliens - minutes ago said that Gov. Jerry Brown has signed it. Now CA will be able to steal tens of millions from citizens to give to illegals. Brown signed the controversial bill in secret on a weekend during football games, with a midnight deadline looming, to try and hide this disgrace from taxpayers. California is truly lost.
Wow. So now Brown is as conservative as Perry on the issue.
I am in the process of leaving the People’s Republic of Californistan and moving to Louisiana, USA
Oh, that's right, Perry! Imagine that! A Republican govenor running for the Republican ticket doing the exact same thing as a Democrat govenor.
Brilliant, simply brilliant....*sigh*
And why wouldn’t he sign this into law?
California is just overflowing with cash.
I’m sorry but if I lived there I would be leaving on the first train east bound.
Stop criticizing Rick Perry you heartless thug. ;)
Muchas gracias gringo taxpayers.
You wouldn’t leave so fast if you couldn’t sell your house...just sayin’
This is nothing like what was passed in Texas.
Get lost TROLL, You’re not even AMerican unless you like spelling color as colour and why will you not tell us why you came back on here under a different name and why were you with the anti war group ANSWER
Good thing California is rolling in the dough. Otherwise, we’d soon be belly up. Hmmmm.... maybe Obama will bail us out. He’s got trillions of available cash just waiting to be printed.
This is probably true.
But if a buyer came along I would be out before they make it mandatory that you STAY in California.
0bama has the paper, all he needs is the promise from our grandchildren that they will guarantee that it will be worth something...
And the grandchildren, even the unborn (should they be born) are already up to their eyeballs in debt.

Me, too. My target: Irving, TX on Oct 21.
As you can imagine my household is a big mess with boxes all over the place.
So leave the liberals to clean up after their own mess. There are more people in the cart than pulling it. This just piles more people into the cart and pulls more off the handle.
I have a mental picture of Californians swirling down the toilet bowl, while the people they elected are reaching up one more time trying to reach the flush handle.
