It's a "DREAM "Act, all right....

A dream come true for the Commiecrats. And California circles the drain...From the LA Times. Mandating "Gay Studies" was bad enough, and now this?
Following through on a campaign promise, Gov. Jerry Brown signed a law Monday easing access to privately funded financial aid for undocumented college students. He also signaled that he was likely to back a more controversial measure allowing those students to seek state-funded tuition aid in the future.
"Obviously it falls into a different realm when the money is coming out of private pockets than it does when it's coming out of taxpayers' pockets," said Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group that advocates halting illegal immigration, "but nevertheless, foundations and other institutions that get tax exemptions should not be promoting policies that encourage people to remain illegally in the United States."
But sadder still, too many Republicans are in dreamland too, dreaming of Hispandering to voters who will vote against them 2/3 of the time no matter what:
“I ask you, what is wrong with thousands of Latino and Hispanic students graduating from California’s higher educational systems, acquiring an education immersed in English, American government and constitutional core curriculum?”
What is wrong, for starters, is that the school system, especially at university level, has been taken over by “multicultural” (multicommunist) and “politically correct” (politically communist) lies and distortions. If anything, those Mexican Non-Americans (Anti-Americans?) who go through it are more likely to become Reconquista or “Brown Beret” traitors and terrorists. The last things we need are more Bogus Ethnic Studies “students”.

And even where the students are serious academically, which White or Asian or Black or Native American or LEGAL Mexican American students are crowded out, shoved aside, and having scarce financial aid taken away fromthem? Because that is what is happening, like it or not. Eric Hogue nees to be honest with himself about THAT before giving us sermons like this:
Republican members, leaders and voters need to be honest with themselves; the GOP must begin to represent our core principles without alienating or disenfranchising the Latino community.
Given the poison of identity politics, “multiculturalism” and “political correctness” that has infected our academics and our politics, Republicans CAN’T represent our core principles without “alienating or disenfranchising the Latino community.” You can’t win a Hispandering contest, Eric, stop trying.
“A recent survey of California Latinos reported that there was ‘some hope’ for the GOP winning the support of Latino voters. The instrument found that 69-precent of Latino voters ‘will likely consider’ Republicans who “ensure all children the chance to a first rate education.””
Big deal. Empty platitudes. We promise a little educational welfare, the Democrats promise more and the Demunist Commiecrats appeal to the ugly identity politics and separatism of the future Brown Berets and Reconquista traitors. And the GOP becomes even more of a minority party. Self fullfilling prophecy.
“Now that we’ve seen the 2010 census results, there can be no denying the immigrant shift in group identity is away from Republicans, and toward Democrats.”
Gee, self fulfilling prophecies tend to turn out that way, don’t they? Pete Wilson was right, and the Wall Street Journal cheap labor greedheads and Bush/Rove immigration romanticizers were wrong. And they have made it worse for the rest of us in the GOP.

Moreover, WHICH immigrants? There is no group more opposed to their attending college than the Asian American population. Those people will reward Republicans if college attendance is ended for those here illegally. Also it will open the doors for disadvantaged African Americans. Enrollments were cut by 30,000 and you want illegal student attendance. Our focus should be on educating U.S.A. Citzens first, then legal resident aliens, then legal foreign students.

And punting and blaming this mess on the feds is pointless. Arizona and other states are showing the way and acting where the corrupt and/or out of touch feds will not. And by taking action, Republicans WILL win elections. Heck, even a near majority of *legal* Mexican Americans are happy with Governor Brewer.
