Obama Supports College Aid for the Undocumented


Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is running for president, has urged California's governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to sign a bill that would enable undocumented students who graduate from high school to receive college aid, according to the Associated Press.

The bill would make low-income immigrant students who are undocumented eligible to receive state grants or community college fee waivers. California, along with nine other states, already allows such students to pay in-state college tuition rates.

To get a sense for how heated the debate is in this country over any policies that give a break to undocumented students, read comments to earlier posts about the "DREAM Act," here and here.


Too bad! Arnold just terminated the Dream Act Sunday morning! Thank you Arnold!!

It's true that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed the college aid bill in California. Here's a link to his veto letter.
