California moves to help immigrants

Posted By on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 7:02 AM

California soon will pass legislation to allow so-called illegal immigrants to receive college financial aid. It would cover students who were students in California high schools for at least three years. Many, of course, will have been residents for most of their lives. It likely will stir an initiative campaign to repeal the law.

It's only fair that long-time state residents who've graduated from public high schools with acceptable records receive the same treatment in state colleges as all other state residents. I am happy to note that this is an issue where Mike Huckabee has stood out from the political crowd with unwavering and even courageous support for such DREAM Acts.
