Without posting all the boring Lawyer mumbo jumbo.....basically Jerry Brown has a bill on his desk, that can grant illegal immigrants Grants and Financial Aid, tell me how this is possible?

We're already in a financial crisis, and now we're going to give money to Illegals? Where does the madness end?

It sucks because not even I was eligible for a cal grant, although I MIGHT receive a pell grant...
Can illegal immigrants graduate american high schools or receive GED's?

You guys have to be more sympathetic than that.
These people don't come here with bad intentions.
They come here to have start over.
If they show enough initiative to go to school, then more power to them.

Because we are a prosperous nation, we should give
until we can't give anymore! These undocumented workers are
like our own family! Would you turn your own brother, sister,
little 10 year old cousin out into the street?

Can't you see that they are hurting, too? Seriously, if
reason and understanding doesn't sway you, perhaps
at the polls you will be. When Obama, peace be upon him, is re-elected
perhaps you will say to yourselves, "I see the light!"

You mean children who were brought over by their parents who spent the majority of their lives in America ?

I have no problem with that.

Now, these Russian prostitutes who are being purchased by American men( I believe it's called Mail Order Brides?) That's something I find offensive. They get to become citizens by virtue of being purchased by some wealthy pervert who can't get a woman on his own so he has to purchase a wife from a bad country who's desperate to escape Putin.

Where's that outrage ?

No. They don't get GEDs for graduating high school.

They get High School Diplomas like everyone else.

I am sympathetic to a degree, but given the economic climate can we really afford to be giving illegal citizens free money essentially?

Then you know what the parents of the immigrants do? instead of helping them learn the nations native language in their own home, they expect our educational system to do it, and it slows the development of the other students because teachers have to use so much more time teaching them the basics, that the other students know.
