DREAM Act Opponents Collect Signatures to Overturn Law
The law, sponsored by Assemblyman Gil Cedillo D-Los Angeles, allows undocumented immigrants, who already qualify for in-state tuition rates to receive state-funded financial aid, including Cal Grants.
Tim Donnelly, a Republican assemblyman in Twin Peaks (who also founded the California chapter of the Minutemen) is leading a referendum that would keep the law from being implemented. He has until January 6 to collect signatures from 504,760 voters. If Donnelly succeeds, the issue will be put up to state voters next year. The group is relying on volunteers, social media and talk radio will give the group the boost they need to get those signatures.
We're waiting for conservative talk show hosts John & Ken to weigh in on this signature-gathering effort in 5...4...3...2...
