Jerry Brown Signs Lesser Of Two California “DREAM” Acts

Audio

Aired 7/25/11

California "DREAM" Act

Gov. Brown appeared with the author of the bill, Los Angeles Assemblyman Gilbert Cedillo, at Cal State-Los Angeles.

Brown spoke about the need to make higher education accessible to all students during this season of tight budgets.

"We want to make sure that every child that is here can go as far as their talents will permit," said Brown. "So that's why I'm here to sign the DREAM Act and anything that's going to advance the cause of our people, whatever their background, their color, their religion."

This is the lesser of two "DREAM Act" bills. The Senate has not yet voted on the second -- and more controversial -- bill, Assembly Bill 131, which would make these students eligible for public financial aid. Brown is expected to sign this bill as well.

Unlike proposed federal legislation, the California laws would not clear the way for thousands of undocumented students who want to become citizens. But critics of the bills say that the measure will take away financial aid resources from legal immigrants and U.S. citizens.

Fair also provided, “The savings can't be realized overnight because much of the expense is mandated by law requiring the education of the children of illegal aliens, many of whom are U.S. born, and for emergency medical treatment. But it is a responsible step in the right direction. Reducing these costs requires the administration to actually enforce existing immigration laws, complete border fencing, allow states to participate in the enforcement process, and otherwise deny benefits and incentives to illegal aliens. Fewer than 6 percent of legal immigrants were admitted because they possessed skills deemed essential to the U.S. economy. Most are admitted because of family ties to earlier immigrants, many of whom are living in poverty or near poverty. As a result, immigration bloats an already-existing surplus of low-skilled workers, increasing job competition and driving down wages for American workers.

We can all stand with our fellow jobless countryman by Calling House and Senate Leadership NOW Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 As a conclusion, Arizona needs our help from years of a neglected border and the flow of--ECONOMIC--foreign nationals. Don't take my word for the facts, as you can find the ugly truth of the illegal settlement at NumbersUSA that has been forced upon us for over thirty years. There have been 6 hidden small Amnesties and the clandestine millions of skilled workers that have arrive here every year, in competition from US workers high paying jobs.

Those not content with the governments excuses for not constructing the REAL DOUBLE FENCE--can donate to the website at: https://www.buildtheborderfence.com/azborder/index.xhtml

MAKE OTHER PEOPLE AWARE OF THE OMINOUS FINANCIAL CONSEQUENCES OF ANY NEW AMNESTY

The world of Academia have stated in many publications, that is mostly Liberal progressive oriented media that immigration of any kind, is good for the economy? They insult Californians, Arizonians; Nevadans legal residents burgeoned down with a never ending influx of poverty, which taxpayers are--FORCED-- to sustain. Fair's statement is, "American taxpayers spend $113 billion annually subsidizing illegal immigration and padding the pockets of businesses addicted to cheap labor. Taxpayers at the state and local levels bear the brunt, providing $84 billion in services annually while the federal government spends $29 billion. In some states, reducing the fiscal burden of illegal immigration would represent nothing short of an economic miracle: The latter figure is — incidentally — almost exactly equal to the interest payment on the total federal debt this past April. Of course, the debt continues to grow uncontrollably because the government must borrow to keep up with, among other things, the growing cost of illegal immigration.

The report examines the likely consequences if an amnesty for the illegal alien population were adopted similar to the one adopted in 1986.Estimates are in--BILLIONS--of dollars. This is also based on only 13 million foreign nationals squatting here. The full report is available in pdf format. http://www.fairus.org/site/DocServer/USCostStudy_2010.pdf?docID=4921

WE NEED FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. REDUCE THE DEBT CEILING BY MANDATING E-VERIFY, SECURE COMMUNITIES AND URGENTLY SECURING THE US BORDER.

Has any American thought to question the Liberals and Democrats, why they think the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act is broken? Is so, like any bill--why cannot be amended, as they are able with any law that passes through Congress? Again, the next question is why these people in the Senate are pushing for another Amnesty, when such an event would injure the American people adding to the bleeding national deficit. Even if the Congress found the votes to pass another Amnesty, isn't it incredulously pathetic to add another 2.5 Trillion to the US treasury 14.5 Trillion dollars deficit. This is according to the Heritage Foundation Robert Rector's projection, after analyzing the 1986 volume Amnesty that cost only 76 Billion dollars. Are you willing to have your tax dollars spent on legitimizing every person who breaks our laws? For over three decades nothing has been done, in fact the Simpson/Mazzoli bill was an absolute failure.

IF AMERICANS DON'T START SPEAKING UP AND DEMANDING THAT THEIR OWN INTERESTS ARE FULLY RECOGNIZED BY THE POLITICIANS, THEY WILL BE SADDLED WITH AT LEAST 20 MILLION FOREIGN NATIONALS, WHICH THEY WILL HAVE TO SUPPORT, PLUS GOD KNOWS HOW MANY FAMILY MEMBERS UNDER THE CHAIN MIGRATION LAW.

University of California Chancellor Birgeneau displaces qualified for public university education california Democrats and Republicans with $50,000 FOREIGN students. Legislature agrees!

University of California (UC) tuition, fee increases are an insult. Californians face mortgage defaults, 12% unemployment, pay reductions, loss of unemployment benefits. No layoff or wage reductions for UC Chancellors, Vice Chancellors, Faculty during greatest recession of modern times.
There is no good reason to raise tuition, fees when wage concessions are available. UC wages must reflect California's ability to pay, not what others are paid. If wages better elsewhere, chancellors, vice chancellors, tenured, non tenured faculty, UCOP apply for the positions. If wages determine commitment to UC Berkeley, leave for better paying position. The sky above the 10 campuses will not fall.
Pitch in for all Democrats, Republicans UC
No furloughs. UCOP 18% reduction salaries & $50 million cut.
Chancellors’ Vice-Chancellors’, 18% cut. Tenured faculty 15% trim.
Non-Tenured, 10% reduction. Academic Senate, Council remove 100% costs salaries.
It is especially galling to continue to generously compensate chancellors, vice-chancellors, faculty while Californians are making financial sacrifices and faculty, chancellor, vice-chancellor turnover is one of the lowest of public universities.
The message that President Yudof, UC Board of Regent Chair Lansing, UC Berkeley Birgeneau are sending is that they have more concern for generously paid chancellors, faculty. The few at the top need to get a grip on economic reality and fairness.
The California Legislature needs a Bill to oversee higher education salaries, tuition.
