Fearing deportation, California's 'Dreamers' are skipping out on financial aid

http://www.latimes.com/nation/sns-tns-bc-cmp-calif-dreamers-20170222-story.html

As widespread fears of deportation sweep California, the number of undocumented immigrant students in California applying for college financial aid has dropped more than 40 percent, new data shows.

"We know the fear is real, and we see it in the numbers," said state Assemblyman Jose Medina, a Riverside Democrat, who heads the Assembly's higher education committee, on Wednesday.

With the state's financial aid deadline approaching, some politicians and advocates now worry that the decision to skip out on tuition aid will send many of the state's young, educated immigrants back into the shadows, unable to attend college or to launch careers.

Under the California Dream Act, undocumented students brought to the U.S. as children commonly known as "Dreamers" are eligible for in-state tuition and certain forms of financial aid while they are enrolled in state colleges and universities. But with a new federal administration sharply clamping down on illegal immigration in its first month, thousands of students have become reluctant to share personal information with the government, fearing deportation, according to educators and state political leaders.

I love that they have the balls to call illegal aliens "Dreamers". 

How about the "Affordable Care Act".  Who could possibly be against affordable care?

Or the "Patriot Act".  If you don't support this then you don't love your country.

Citizens need to find a way to compel the government to stop putting cute, misleading names on legislation.  It's manipulative trickery.  Orwellian in the truest sense of the word.

Senile old bitch.  Democrats hemorrhaging seats with her and Harry Reid in charge.

Holy smokes.  She and Maxine Waters sound like they should be in a nursing home.
