Let me get this straight: Come to the United States illegally and feel free to consume taxpayer funded resources.
"...[b]ut Assemblyman Hector De La Torre, D-South Gate (Los Angeles County), argued that students who work hard shouldn't be punished because of their immigration status. "This simply allows these kids that are working their butts off to live their version of the American dream," he said. "
By that arguement I shouldn't be punished if I were to rob a bank and use that money to live my fantasy version of the American dream. I mean, I work hard, a hell of a lot harder than an illegal immigrant who has time to go to school, so I should be able to commit crimes and use that as an excuse no?
