It is hard to overstate the stunning embrace of lawlessness represented by three bills signed by California Governor Jerry Brown this past weekend. Brown on Saturday signed three bills that directly champion illegal aliens. Together, they put the state so far on the side of illegals (and against legal taxpayers), that California now has no legitimate rival for the title of "The Sanctuary State", and should consider changing their official motto accordingly.
Facing a midnight deadline for sign several controversial bills, Brown avoided a public signing ceremony for these unpopular bills. He waited until the last day - on a holiday weekend - and then until the late afternoon when millions of households were watching college football, to sign the three bills.
The first bill, AB131 - The "California Dream Act, Part II", provides a minimum of $40 million in grants and state-funded financial aid, grants and scholarships to illegal aliens, in addition to in-state tuition rates already provided. Illegal Community College students are eligible to attend fee-free. Former Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed similar bills in the past. As a result of these bills, out of state students are recruited to pay for the extra debt incurred which means there are even fewer spots for California legal residents, and this at a time when state aid to legal students is being reduced.
As California wallows in record, staggering debt, AB131 increases debt spending for illegal alien students. And for what? As Assemblyman Tom Donnelly (R) has said, these students who graduate will never be able to work or pay taxes "because they are illegal. The entire investment which is how they sell it is a poor use of resources." Perhaps that is next: California-issued work permits for illegals, in blatant violation of Federal law - with a lawless Barack Obama more than happy to look the other way.
The author of AB 131 is Gil Cedillo, a former MEChA member who has made a career of pimping legislation to make life easier for illegal aliens - whether increasing social services, or avoiding the hassles of police enforcing the laws they break. Cedillo is known for calling opponents of any such bills "racists", and for exhorting his supporters to display the Mexican flag above the American one. This race-obsessed thug is what now passes for a statesman in Jerry Brown's Sanctuary State.
