Thank you, Esther. One thing, though. AB 131 (CA DREAM Act) will provide fee (tuition) waivers and EOPS (living expenses for books, laptops, food, cars, etc) while in a CA Community College, which do not require a minimum GPA. You are right in that most of the other State Aid available requires only a 2.0-2.6 GPA for free money that will not be paid back.

We're going to repeal the California DREAM Act (AB 131) and RecaLL Governor Brown, Too.

There are already 5,000 volunteers to start getting signatures with petitions ready this Tuesday. If there was $1Million to be spent, the petitions would be ready in one month. Donnelly is trying to get this done through social media and radio stations.

Here’s more info at:









For the first year alone:

“It is not known how many undocumented students would be eligible for the aid. A Senate committee analysis estimated the bill’s cost at about $40 million. That includes $13 million for Cal Grants, which average about $4,500; up to $15 million in community college waivers; and $12 million in institutional aid from the University of California and California State University systems.”

This is clearly Economic Discrimination against US Citizens, Legal Californian Residents, and Legal Immigrants who have seen their tuition rates rise dramatically while not being eligible or have seen their financial aid reduced. It is this discriminated population who ARE our FUTURE.

Also, with the heavy recruitment of out-of-state and Foreign Nationals who can pay nearly twice the in-state tuition rate to refund our defunct education system, Legal Californian Residents and Legal Immigrants will be “priced out” and “placed out” of THEIR American Dream, THEIR higher education.
