Calif. would require "resource centers" for illegal aliens

Open Borders America

  • On their own Democrat California could not afford to fund millions of illegal aliens.  But the open borders GOP Congress votes countless billions of Federal tax dollars to keep the state afloat freeing up state dollars to fund the citizens of other nations.

(Campus Reform)  -  More than 100 colleges and universities in California could soon be required to establish special resource centers for students residing illegally in the United States.
Last Wednesday, Golden State lawmakers passed Assembly Bill (AB) 1366 requiring that California Community Colleges and California State Universities create on-campus centers dedicated to teaching illegal immigrants how to procure financial aid and take advantage of various academic opportunities. While the centers would not be required at the nine University of California schools, the bill does request that each establish their own.
According to the text of the bill, the purpose of constructing such centers is to increase enrollment and graduation rates among students who meet the requirements of AB 540—a state law passed in 2001 granting in-state tuition at public universities throughout the state to illegal aliens who attended California high schools for a minimum of three years.
“It is important as the undocumented student population continues to grow they are given the support needed,” Assemblywoman Patty Lopez (D-District 39) said in a recent statement. “By establishing Dream Resource Centers, students will be able to focus more on their academic goals and less on administrative and social barriers.”
At least six universities in the state, including but not limited to UC Davis, UCLA, Cal State Long Beach and Cal State Northridge have already debuted their own specialized centers for illegal immigrants. In late May, Cal State Los Angeles received a $1.6 million private endowment to open its own Dream Success Center.
According to AB 1366, already-established Dream Success Centers provide “informational workshops, legal clinics… information on programs available to undocumented immigrants… peer mentoring and support services” aimed at expanding students’ professional development and “employment opportunities.”
The legislative push for on-campus resource centers is the latest attempt by California lawmakers to assist illegal immigrants in their pursuit of higher education.
Beyond receiving in-state tuition, illegal immigrants in California can receive state-funded student aid and are eligible at designated public universities to benefit from special loan programs.
