California cannot afford DREAM Act

On March 15, when I found out that the California DREAM Act was passed through committee, I was absolutely appalled.

The California DREAM Act was created to waive entrance fees to college and provide financial aid to illegal immigrants. We are as broke as can be, but we can somehow find the funding for illegal immigrants to attend college?

I went through four years of private school education and am now in debt because I was not given any state money. I'm not looking for a handout, but come on. Someone who doesn't even belong here will get money to go to school because "they have rights and might be doctors, or lawyers"? It is absolutely ridiculous! What is the reasoning to just give away this money?

I know former Gov. Schwarzenegger vetoed this bill three times, but Gov. Brown has shown interest in this bill in the past. I don't know what this state is coming to if this bill is passed. I was absolutely beside myself after reading this.
